Q: I want to ask a question. I am living in Spain and there are many shops many of which belong to Muslims which sell wine, alcohol and pig. How do you view this? I ask them why you sell these things. They say if we don’t sell this, then nobody will enter our shop. I want to know what type of income is this halaal or haraam.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
