Non-Muslims' contributions to Islamic projects

Q: The city of Kinamyu is 25 kilometers away from Nairobi. Sadly, Kinamyu has neither a Masjid (mosque) nor a school. Putting our trust in Allah, we intend to construct two buildings though we are currently not financially able to do so. Is it thus permissible to use the money which is donated by non-Muslims for building the concerned Masjid and school? Please, provide us with your beneficial answer based on Qur'an, Sunnah (whatever is reported from the Prophet), and the practice of our Salaf (righteous predecessors). May Allah reward you for helping us and other Muslims.

A: It is permissible for Muslims to accept donations of non-Muslims for Islamic projects such as the construction of Masjids and schools, provided that doing so will not harm Muslims in any way which outweighs the expected benefit of receiving such donations.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
