Prohibited to you are deadanimals,blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah ,.. Surah Maaidah..Chapter 4 and verse number 4.. In this Verse,it is clearly explained that to eat anything dedicated to other than Allah {S.w.t} prohibited and Haram.. The prashads etc are in the name of various hindu gods such as Ram,sita,etc.. So,to eat prashad is Prohibited.. Hope the Answer of Question.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 3:

Forbidden to you (for food) are: dead (flesh of animals not slaughtered), blood, the flesh of swine, and that (food) on which hath been invoked the name of other than Allah.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chatper 2 Surah Baqarah verse 173:

He hath only forbidden you dead meat, and blood, and the flesh of swine, and that (food) on which any other name hath been invoked besides that of Allah; but if one is forced by necessity without willful disobedience, nor transgressing due limits, then is he guiltless. For Allah is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 145:

Say: "I find not in the Message received by me by inspiration any (food) forbidden to be eaten by one who wishes to eat it unless it be dead meat, or blood poured forth, or the flesh of swine for it is an abomination, or what is impious (food) on which a name has been invoked other than Allah's." But (even so) if a person is forced by necessity without wilful disobedience nor transgressing due limits, thy Lord is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful.

Any food that is dedicated to anyone or anything other than Allah (swt), or any food upon which a name of anyone other than Allah(swt) is invoked would be absolutely unlawful and ‘haraam’ for the believers to consume....!!

The ‘prasad’ is a food offering dedicated by our Hindu people unto their deities; thus the eating or drinking of any type of such ‘prasad’ offerings would be absolutely unlawful for the believers who sincerely fear Allah and the Last Day...!! If a believer had absolutely no intention to disobey ALLAH and unknowingly and unintentionally happened to eat from the ‘prasad’ offerings, it is expected that he will find forgiveness from the merciful lord ALLAH...!!

Rather than copying the text from other source, try to answer it in simple language. I dont have any problem in understanding but many of the members. And also do not lengthen your answer. KEEP SHORT KEEP SIMPLE.

my english is preferably very simple in understanding..I never use complex words and try to make my answers as simple as I can...and my answer is long because I try to provide as many proofs I can so that the seeker of knowledge(questioner) is completely satisfied having no doubts regrding it...I never "copy paste" texts. I write the proofs as it is,because it is from the quran or hadith whose language or words cant be changed...!!
