An individual presented few dates in plastic cup (kept with water coolers) in the Prophet’s mosque (Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him).
Sayyidi wa sanadi Mufti Mohammed Taqi Usmani (Allah protect & preserve him) inquired,
‘Is this a used plastic cup?’
On receiving a negative response he picked a single date and returned the plastic cup clarifying,
‘It is impermissible to give something that is mosque property to another as a gift.’
