Muslims living with non-Muslims

Q: Is it allowed for Muslims to live with non-Muslims in the same house?

A: It is best that the non-Muslims live separately. If it comes to a point where the Muslim cannot manage living separately then he should ensure that he does not become too close to them and they do not influence his thinking and deeni obligations.

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