Asking a Muslim host about food or drink he serves

Bismillah Ar Rahmaan Ar Raheem

If a Muslim is served food in his Muslim brother‘s house, and he is worried about whether the meat is halaal or haraam, he may eat it without questioning because, in Islam, the principle is that a Muslim is trustworthy.

 

 

The evidence for this is the saying of the Prophet Sallallahu alaihi wasallam:

 

If one of you enters the house of his Muslim brother and he offers him food, let him eat it and not ask anything about it, and if he offers him something to drink, let him drink it and not ask anything about it.

 

(Ahmad, 2/399; al-Silsilah al-Saheehah, no. 627)
This is also because such interrogation may insult his host and make him feel that he is being doubted.
