*PLAYING POKER AND ACCEPTING GIFTS FROM A PERSON WHO'S INCOME IS HARAAM*

I want to ask that one of my relative plays poker in mobile and earns money..is that also haram, if yes then shall I eat anything of his income...because whenever they cook something special they get it for me also...Please advice.

*ANSWER:*

1. In principle, any activity which involves gambling will be impermissible. Mobile/computer games are futile and generally distract one from ibaadaat (worship). One should abstain from them.

2. If his major income is from Halal money, then you may accept anything offered by him on condition the item itself is Halal and you know that the item offered was not specifically bought with Haram money.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
