Eating and accepting gifts from a person whose income is haraam

Q: My mother is a widow and the only finance to run her house is the amount that comes against the government scheme which is interest base. My question is that is it permissible for me to have food there and receive gifts from her whenever I go to her house. I am married.

A: If most of her wealth is coming from a haraam avenue then avoid eating there.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
