Is it permissible for Muslims to eat the food that is offered by a non- muslim which s/he brought from their worship places?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

As a rule, a Muslim can eat the food of a non-Muslim in Islam. The verse of the Koran: “The food of those to whom the Book was given is lawful to you, and your food is lawful to them” (al-Maida 5/5) underlines that reality.
It does not matter whether the food is brought from the church or not. It is enough if the food does not to include pork.
