Ahl Al-Kitab (5)
Does socialising with ahl al-kitab and those who hate Islam – which is due to their ignorance of its truth – constitute a breach of the duty of “ tabarri” or disowning the enemies of the truth, or is it permissible on the basis of maintaining good human relations?
It is permissible.
Yes (although as a mostahab precaution it should be avoided).
Is it permissible to eat at Muslim restaurants whose cooks are non- Muslims, other than ahl al-kitab?
Does a Muslim who lives in ahl al-kitab countries such as the EU deem the native people he meets as najis such that when he shakes hands – if wet – he should render them tahir?
As an obligatory precaution he should render them tahir , if there is no difficulty or discomfort, otherwise it is not mandatory to make them tahir
Are the bodies, clothes of ahl al-kitab and their utensils, linen, car, and other necessities of life deemed tahir if they are wet or moist; this is especially relevant when it rains, and it is an issue for us here?
Anything of theirs which is not known to be najis is deemed tahir
