    • 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)  
    • https://www.sistani.org/english/book/48/ Please visit the website of Ayatollah Sistani above^ and read the section on Mutahhirat. Reading other relevant sections may be helpful as well (i.e. taharat, najis things).
    • Even if your life is without any difficulty, you still will see other people suffering and as long as you see people suffering, you cannot be really happy unless you are an emotionless person and we cannot expect such a selfish person to truely believe in God and worship Him. In other words, a true believer will never enjoy an immortal life on this earth.
    • Still he is my master. And if I was given the gift of immortality I know that its a gift so great that its from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) not from science.
    • Take this to its logical conclusion and you'll only be able to shop at stores which don't sell alcohol and other forbidden goods. There won't be many stores left for you to shop at.
