Title: Selling to non-Muslims


Selling Items On Non-Muslims Country Store

Assalaamu 'Alaikum

I'm an entrepreneur that had plans to sell halal food such as potato chip, snack made from shrimp, fish products etc. I want to distribute my products to another country like Japan, South Korean or China.Those country are non-muslims country which are their store mixing halal and haram items.

My question, is it permissible for me to sell my products across these countrys where my products will be on store that mixing halal and haram items?

Please provide daleel for these matters.

Thank you very much.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is permissible for you to sell your halal products to non- Muslims.[1]

What do you mean by mixing?

If your product is packed separately, that should not matter. If they are completely mixed with haram products, that is not your responsibility. Once you sold a product, the non-Muslim is the owner and you are not responsible how they sell it.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
