There is nothing wrong with eating from a table or with a spoon or fork

Q)  Is it true that eating at a table (in a dining room) is imitating the kuffaar? Is using a spoon or fork when eating a kind of arrogance or imitating the kuffaar?

 

A)  Praise be to Allaah.

 

There is nothing wrong with eating at a table and the like, as mentioned, or with eating with a fork or spoon and the like, and that is not imitating the kuffaar, because it is not something that is unique to them. 

 

And Allaah is the source of strength; may Allaah send blessing and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote.
