Selling silver utensils and using their price

A: It is authentically reported in the Two Sahih (authentic) Books of Hadith (i.e. Al-Bukhari and Muslim) on the authority of Hudhayfah ibn Al-Yaman (may Allah be pleased with them both) that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "Do not drink in silver or golden utensils, and do not eat in their plates, for they are for them (disbelievers) in this worldly life and for you in the Hereafter." There is also another Hadith related in the same two books on the authority of Um Salamah (may Allah be pleased with her) who narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, "Anyone who drinks in silver utensils is only filling their abdomen with Fire." Therefore, anything that is essentially prohibited, is prohibited to be sold or bought. Accordingly, it is not permissible for you to use the price of sold silver utensils or its profits. What is generated and grown unlawfully is unlawful in itself. Thus, if you can sort out such ill-gotten money, it will be good and all praise be to Allah. Otherwise, you have to do your best to sort it out to reach a degree of most probability. You can get rid of ill-gotten money through dedicating it for righteous activities without intending it as charity. Indeed, Allah is good and accepts only that which is good.
