Facebook user Faizal Gentlenerd who is a student at Singapore polytechnic, answered a question of if Muslims can eat food that is offered by non-Mulims. Since he wrote the post in August last year, it has been shared over 9000 times. it is trending in social media again.
We republish his note.

If you receive food from your non-Muslim neighbour, and they say there is no pork in it, would you eat, for example?
Shaykh Yusuf Qaradawi wrote in a fatwa, portions of which may be found in al-Halal wa al-Haram fi al-Islam, “It is not required of the Muslim to inquire about what he has not witnessed, such as how was the animal killed, did the manner of slaughter meet the Islamic conditions, or was the name of Allah mentioned while slaughtering or not? If the animal was slaughtered by a Muslim, even if he is ignorant or sinful, or by someone from among the People of the Book, eating it is halal for us.”
According to a hadits, the companions asked the Prophet (s.a.w.), “People bring us meat and we do not know whether they have mentioned the name of Allah over it or not. Shall we eat it or not?”
And the Prophet (s.a.w.) replied, “Mention the name of Allah over it and eat.”
That food is rizqi. It is bad adab for a Muslim to interrogate someone about the food when it is Given and bad adab before Allah (s.w.t.) since He is the Provider of rizqi. So the religion is simple, but Muslims, in their ignorance, make it difficult.
