A family member owns a restaurant where they sell alcohol and allows customers to drink there. Is it permissible to sit in such a restaurant and eat?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
It is not permissible for a Muslim to sell or serve alcohol in his restaurant. Furthermore, it does not behave a Muslim to eat in such a restaurant, irrespective of the restaurant being owned by a family member or anyone else.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
