Question: 

I have an
accommodation on rent . The utensils , pots & pans etc have been used by
tenants of all faiths .

They have cooked products that are Haraam for us (pork etc) .

Can my family & I use these at a later date or should we dispose of them ?

If possible to use then is there any procedure that we should follow to make
these permissible for us to use ?


Answer: 

You are not required to dispose of the utensils in question even though it may have been used by non-Muslims. However, before utilising the dishes you should thoroughly wash the utensils utilizing water and detergents or soap by which any remaining impurity may be removed. There isn’t any particular method as such prescribed in Shariah for washing such dishes, rather the objective is to remove any remaining impurity.
قال مَُُمَّدٌ رَحَِِهُ اللََُّّ تَعَالََ وَيُكْرَهُ الَْْكْلُ وَالشُّرْبُ في أَوَانِِ الْمُشْ رِكِينَ قبل الْغَسْلِ وَمَعَ هذا لو أَكَلَ أو شَرِبَ فيها قبل الْغَسْلِ جَازَ وَلََ
يَكُونُ آكِلًا وَلََ شَارِبًً حَرَامًا وَهَذَا إذَا لم يَعْلَمْ بِنَجَاسَةِ الَْْوَانِِ فَأَمَّا إذَا عَلِمَ فَأَنَّهُ لََ يَ وزُ أَنْ يَشْرَبَ وَأَْْكُلَ منها قبل الْغَسْ لِ )الفتاوي
