Sending children to the schools of non-Muslims

Q 2: I am a student in a higher secondary school where I live with some Christian students from Southern Sudan. Occasionally I hear them saying some offensive things about Islam; what should I do?

(Part No. 12; Page No. 142)  A: You have to study at an Islamic school and you are not permitted to reside with non-Muslims. However, if your current schoolmates do any offence; do not return the same kind of comments to them. Rather, advise them and call them to goodness in a way that is best for it may be that Allah (Exalted be He) guides them.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
