Buy food from store selling haraam products
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: is it halal to buy from the departmental stores where the beer is also sold?
The guidance of Islam prohibits a believer from indulging in or consuming the products which are declared as haraam or unlawful in Shariah.but there is absolutely no harm or restriction on a believer from visiting or purchasing the lawful or halaal items from a store which also happens to sell unlawful products.
Your Question: the muslim brother who is the small shop owner, his earning is also halal??
As long as the brother himself does not indulge in the trading of unlawful products, there is no reason to believe that his earnings will be considered unlawful in Shariah. If the brother buys and sells only lawful products and conducts his business within the prescribed boundaries of Shariah, it would be expected that his earnings would be halaal and lawful in the Sight of the Lord.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
