Question

 

Could you please tell me that Muslim and non-Muslim can eat together on one plate?

 

 

 

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer

 

The Sur or the saliva of a non-Muslim is considered pure, provided there is no filth in his mouth at the time such as alcohol. (Nurul Idah p.26)

 

Therefore, regarding your question, it will be permissible to eat from the same plate with a non-Muslim as long as his saliva is free from any impurities.

 

 

Only Allah Knows Best
