The teaching of Islam are not limited to any religion, race, time, conditions etc. And the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was sent as Marcy for all the creations. While living in plural societies one has to interact with people having various religious and cultured backgrounds. Islam not only gives very clear instructions for such interactions but all these valuable commandments were also personified in Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The basic research question of this study is that how Quran, Hadith and the opinions of four schools of thought in the wake of conditions and circumstances of the modern day world guide Muslims in terms of participating in funerals of Non- Muslims and offering condolence to them. The methodology adopted to address the above mentioned question is that Quran, Hadith and the viewpoints of four Imams were taken into consideration respectively. Lastly various methods of condolence have also been highlighted. The research concludes on the findings that Muslims can offer condolence to Non-Muslims as this will work as a very effective message of Islam in the wake of modern day issues in terms of the relationship of Muslim and Non-Muslims. However Muslims are not allowed to participate in any rituals of Non-Muslims.
