Oh, you sons and daughters of Adam take what’s permitted, deemed lawful and sound in the land. Do not traverse the path of Satan. Surely the Devil is evil, which is unmistakable and self-evident to you.
Is there a difference in the shopper or those providing the shopping environment?
There are big chain stores like Costco, Sam’s Club, or Wal-Marts, etc., that are mostly owned by people in the secular world here in America. They all sell alcohol and pork products, yet most Muslims here go to those places and shop for their daily needs, other than those forbidden items sold. Some Muslims tell themselves to use logic to permit them to shop in those stores. Because they will not shop down the isles that are not designated by religious instruction, for Muslim consumption, and they will only buy legal stuff.
Then we have some mom and pop stores owned by some Muslims whose markets are in communities that are predominantly “African American.” And are aware that most of those people they sell to have secular mentalities. They sell alcohol and pork products to cater to most of those people dispositions that consume those things anyway.
However, those mom and pop stores owned by Muslims knew the demographics; that is the reason they chose the locations to set-up shop. Instead of being competitive with other Muslim owned Markets in their communities, they decided otherwise.
Since we all belong to the human race, what went wrong with those Muslims not inviting those secular-minded people in those communities to a better intellect? They know how wrong it is to consume alcohol and pork. Why not show it is not right by not selling those products in their stores. Could it be illegal money the Muslim store owners are hunting?
Instead of being pompous and thinking those people would buy it from someone else, if not from you. The Muslim store owners know the difference of the correct products for the mind and soul, from the harmful products, through the recitation of your Qur’an.
Should not, you choose right over evil and where one spends or make one’s money?
