    • The fact that they put Halloween decorations up doesn't forbid you from shopping there.  You can confirm this with any scholar.

    • OPINE: Since the evilgelicals misuse the cliche "higher power" on a continuing basis, l have an unease about using this in lslam. al-Qadeer -(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). has the triliteral root qaf dal ra which occurs 132 times in Quran. As Allah-(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). is an active 'determiner'/'decider' in all things, and the verb form of this triliteral in Quran is rendered 'control', 'overpower', 'appraise', 'decrees', 'restricts', 'predestines', 'determines', 'measures', 'is able'; and in nominal noun "All Powerful". The illusion that "power" is like some kind of electrical generation, gravitational  or, blasphemously, mythological is completely wrong. When Quran reveals "all things" it means all things. A second thing wrong is the word "higher'. The God of Noah -(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). is, as Quran reveals, closer to us than our jugular (Ayat 50:16) and He -(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). is Witness to All Things. He -(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). is not displaced in another location.
    • First things first, Islam is not supposed to be a burden. At least that's what I was told by brothers and sisters on this very forum. I don't shop at halal stores because there aren't any around me; the closest one would be up in the major city like 40 miles away. So to remedy that and accommodate my mother's dietary choices, I just don't eat meat often (maybe less than once a month) or drink alcohol (I quit drinking long before I had arrived at Islam). More often than not, I just eat vegetarian meals (lots of beans and pasta and rice. I also eat eggs and dairy). I don't eat things with pork-based flavoring (such as pork ramen or baked beans with bacon flavoring) Besides, most of the people where I live are Christians and the food of the People of the Book isn't haram. Grocery stores in Florida sell beer and wine, but I know for a fact that I'm not the only Muslim that does his shopping there because I've seen the other Muslims I know shopping there-- the simple solution is to simply not buy or drink any alcohol, and check your more processed foods to make sure there are no pork-derived flavorings in it. Halal is starting to be treated in the same way that Kosher certification is (you can check foods for a Halal certification marking and more of them are having one as time goes on)  
    • Islam does not support racism whereas Christianity does. take a good look at this:     Quran says to be righteous towards those who worship another god https://biblehub.com/exodus/22-20.htm Islam is a respectful religion towards all religions Those who took part in the 2001 incident are not Muslims. Islam literally means: to surrender PEACEFULLY  wasalam
