Hadith on Gifts: Giving gifts to non-Muslim family

Ibn Umar reported: Umar saw a silken cloak for sale and he requested that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, buy it to wear on Fridays and days he receives delegations. The Prophet said, “Verily, this cloak is worn by one who has no share in the Hereafter.” Later, the Prophet received some silken cloaks similar to those and he sent one to Umar. Umar said to the Prophet, “How can I wear it considering what you said?” The Prophet said, “Verily, I have not given it to you to wear, but rather to sell it or to give it to someone else.” Umar sent it to his brother among the people of Mecca before he had embraced Islam.

In another narration, Ibn Umar said, “Umar gave it to his brother in Mecca who was an idolater.”

عَنْ ابْنِ عُمَرَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا قَالَ رَأَى عُمَرُ حُلَّةً عَلَى رَجُلٍ تُبَاعُ فَقَالَ لِلنَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ابْتَعْ هَذِهِ الْحُلَّةَ تَلْبَسْهَا يَوْمَ الْجُمُعَةِ وَإِذَا جَاءَكَ الْوَفْدُ فَقَالَ إِنَّمَا يَلْبَسُ هَذَا مَنْ لَا خَلَاقَ لَهُ فِي الْآخِرَةِ فَأُتِيَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مِنْهَا بِحُلَلٍ فَأَرْسَلَ إِلَى عُمَرَ مِنْهَا بِحُلَّةٍ فَقَالَ عُمَرُ كَيْفَ أَلْبَسُهَا وَقَدْ قُلْتَ فِيهَا مَا قُلْتَ قَالَ إِنِّي لَمْ أَكْسُكَهَا لِتَلْبَسَهَا تَبِيعُهَا أَوْ تَكْسُوهَا فَأَرْسَلَ بِهَا عُمَرُ إِلَى أَخٍ لَهُ مِنْ أَهْلِ مَكَّةَ قَبْلَ أَنْ يُسْلِمَ

وفي رواية أخرى قال ابن عمر فَكَسَاهَا عُمَرُ أَخًا لَهُ بِمَكَّةَ مُشْرِكًا
