    Regarding your Q 01: why would you even consider giving charity/sadaqah to non-muslims, who can have all the possibility of such use and abuse of it?. Why don't you prefer Muslim believers instead?, In that way you would have a chance at extra rewards if they are grateful and pray for you plus we are commanded to help believers. And about Q 02: isn't it possible to avoid watching the ads if it works in the way which you claim. Nov 11 '21 at 13:12

No, giving money to non-muslims is not haram as long as it is not explicitly given for something haram. It has to be given if you buy something (and this is not forbidden). It is your responsibility to judge whether what you watch on YouTube is ok, or whether you want to use YouTube but if you do so, you receive a service that is paid indirectly and that is a kind of commerce and not generally forbidden.

You can also give money to non Muslim for helping (even encouraged if they need help) or to make a pleasure (where a direct gift would be preferable)

  • Your answer is according to what madhab? I'm shafii madhab, I want to use your answer but I'm afraid that I considered use other madhab with desire.

  • My answer is according to Hanafi fiqh. Shafii is indeed sometimes stricter with non-Muslims, and I do not know the details. However, keeping a contract with non-Muslims is the same ruling, the question when such contract is haram may be different.

Assalamu alykom wa rahmatu allah wa baraktoh (Peace be upon muslims)

Dear brother/sister, giving money to non-muslims is a major sin as the money you may give can be used by them to buy things that are haram or pay for services that are super haram wa al eyaathu bellahh (astaghfirullah!)

I recommend that you do not give money to a non-muslim no matter what.

I also encourage you not to watch youtube videos of non muslims unless they are for educational purpose.
