Can we eat the food which is kept in front of idols. In my company after celebrating the festivals (some fruits or coconut in front of idols)they give it to all the employees Is it halal?.
In the ayah Surat Baqarah:173 (emphasis mine):
He has only forbidden to you dead animals, blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah. But whoever is forced [by necessity], neither desiring [it] nor transgressing [its limit], there is no sin upon him. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
Mention that it is haram. But sometimes I thought that after reciting bismillah Can we it that?(note that I am talking about only fruits not meat)
