Permissibility of a Muslim accepting a gift from a Kafir

Q 5: What is the ruling on two brothers, one of whom is a Muslim and the other is a Mushrik (one who associates others with Allah in His Divinity or worship) and rich. Is it permissible for the Muslim brother to accept a gift from his Kafir (non-Muslim), mushrik brother, or not?

A: It is permissible for a Muslim to accept a gift from his brother if he is a kafir or a mushrik, because that may soften the latter's heart and Allah may guide him to Islam. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions!
