Its haraam,as its an offering to the false Hindu deities  or possibly the sikh guru granth book.

prashaad is sweet it may be home made or available in the market usually hindus keep it at the time of pooja or prayer.as  some of the muslims keep sweet at the time of niyaz or fatiha (sorry dont know the difference b/w fatiha and niyaz)

How does a banana or an apple that may have been kept near an idol or chanted some recital on it become haram?

There is a clear difference in merely being near to an idol and that of it being dedicated to the idol as an offering of thanks(prashad)

Its the acceptance of such an offering that becoms haram to partake in,as you are accepting/endorsing it and the intention behind it(idol worship etc).

personaly i think it should be avoided as much as possible coz hindus may also use urine of cow...most of the hindus dont use it 

one of my friend gave some prashad but i dint eat but i kept it somewhere but i was feeling bad coz its a rizk, and thats the reason im confused to eat it or not

So accepting something that anyone offers you implies an automatic endorsement of his views?

By the way endorsement of his intention and views would imply kufr, why make it haram?

Isnt kufr haram(forbidden) too?

 

PS Lets not turn this into linguistic volleying(as i have not the time), just lookup/study the levels and manifestations of haram in shariah.

Give it to any Devbandis in your area, according to their Imam Rashid Ahmad Gangohi, it is Jaiz (Fataw Rashidia).

It is forbidden to eat Prashad as Brother Imran has stated. Hindu's pass the food out because they believe it has blessings and good fortune after being offered to their gods. The following Ayah speaks of accepting such foods.

'Eat not of (meats) on which Allah's name hath not been pronounced: That would be impiety. But the evil ones ever inspire their friends to contend with you if ye were to obey them, ye would indeed be Pagans' (Qur'an 6:121)


Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wassallam)
"Kindness is a mark of faith, and whoever is not kind has no faith."
Sahih Muslim

"The proof of a Muslim's sincerity is, that he pays no heed to that, which is not his business."
Tirmidhi

its funny how they offer it to their so called gods and it isn't accepted as the gods don't eat or cant eat it

I think as a muslim you should accept it and when the person is away from you then throw it outside in the nature. Because my opinion says that you have to show your behaviour in good manner, maybe then the hindu will get more interested in islam .

From what my understanding is from speaking to a scholar it is makrooh, not haram but best avoided.

And Allah knows best.

Interesting topic..

What if you have friends who are hindus and you interact with them on a regular basis? There have been countless times when I have been over at her house and once or twice her mother has offered me these "holy offerings." Obviously I can not refuse on her face. What should the course of action be in such a situation?

simple sister dont go at her house thats what i do so that i can avoid eating prashad sort of thing. Another reason that i avoid going to her house is that hindu people do some sort of vodoo, totka and utara especially on their festivals like diwali and holi.so its better not to go there...

i have a hindu friend, its been five year of our friendship and i never been to her house and she came almost in every 3-4 months or so and she says you never come to my home and as always my answer is yaar what would i do at ur home , the thing is we meet and where do we meet is not a matter, then she doesnt say anything...
