Question

Assalamu alaykum, is it acceptable in
islam to share the same cutlery with
a non muslim sister in a same
container.

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The
Lord of the Worlds. I testify that
there is none worthy of worship
except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

A Muslim is allowed to share cooking
utensils and food utensils and the
like with non-Muslims, whether they
are relatives or not. It is proven that
the Prophet performed ablution
from a water skin that belonged to a
polytheist woman. An exception to
this is applicable if a Muslim knows
or predominantly thinks that the
non-Muslim uses these utensils in
serving an impure food such as pork,
or drink such as alcohol and the like,
since in that case he should not use
them.

In any case, a Muslim is advised to
diligently invite his non-Muslim
relative to Islam; perhaps Allah will
make him a reason behind his
relative embracing Islam. The
Prophet was reported to have
said, “If Allah guides one single man
through you, that would be better for
you than possessing the red camels
[i.e. better than massive wealth].” [Al-
Bukhari and Muslim]
Allah Knows best.
