    Would you ?

    Report bad ads?

    Assalmualykum,

    I would like to ask if you would eat from a restraunt that sells Alcohol, would you trust the meat to be halal, if they sell Alcohol, can you trust the meat ?

    I am asking because there are alot of restraunts in UK that are muslim owned but still sell alcohol, so I was wondering if people would still go

    Jazakallah
    Salam

    Re: Would you ?

    AssalmuAlaykum,
    Hmmm, I personally wouldn't eat from there...I don't think I would trust it..
    Yeah a lot of resturants do sell alcohol....and most restaurants that do sell alchol.... the owners arent muslim .....so I wouldn't trust the meat to be halal.
    In my opinion...
    Would you ?

    Re: Would you ?

    This is actually my biggest beef (no pun intended) with so-called "halal" restaurants.

    Most restaurants that are owned by Muslims either sell alcohol and claim their meat is zabihah, or they only offer a partial-zabihah menu (or both).

    Trying to find a restaurant that is 100% halal in both meat and beverages is quite rare.

    I'm also trying to stop eating at non-Muslim restaurants all together (ie, when I eat fish or veggie dishes), for fear that they use the same cooking surfaces or serving utensils for all food items.

    Such are the trials and tribulations of being a Muslim in America.

    ...I wonder at the one who extends his right hand
    To his beloved at the time of seperation and he hastens therein!
    I felt weak and incapable of saying farewell when I saw him
    So my heart shook his hand whilst my eye wept....

    Yes I know how you feel!

    I LOVE Turkish food, but the restuarants I have been to either sell alcohol or contain alcohol in their dishes. One claimed to be halal and the other admitted the meat is not halal. I had vegetarian food at both of them, but now I feel uncomfortable with the fact that they sell alcohol and cook around non-halal food.....so inshAllah I try to avoid it now. I attempt to cook the food I cant buy....even if it means uneatable imam biyaldi lol

    There ARE decent restuarants that sell all halal food and no alcohol...bit harder to find though. I guess you have to be the change you want to see.

    If anyone's been to the restaurant, "Flavourz", then you know that their meat is apparently halal, but they also have pork.

    Re: Would you ?

    Some muslims live in places where there aren't many Muslim restaurants, n the few that exist tend to sell alcohol. The ones I know really sell halal meat..

    When I asked the owner why he sells alcohol he said, "a lot of our customers are non-muslim's n they dine here. I think it's shady.. to each their own.

    Re: Would you ?

    Here in Boston I can count on one hand the number of Muslim restaurants that are 100% halal in both their food and drink.

    Eating out is definitely a luxury and we shouldn't really be complaining when there are people in this world that can't even buy food to cook at home. However, it does make a powerful statement about the state of the Ummah in the West and how many people are forgoing their religious obligations in favor of a buck.
