meat, music and peace (all re-runs)

Q: Asalamualikum Brother (muhammed) Shoaib,

I have few questions to ask you, keeping in my mind that you are busy . You can take your own time , but please do reply. My first question is :

1. We call Christians Ahllil  kitab, as they have changed their book Bible. As Allah has already explained in Quran that who ever set apart with him , they are in hell.
so when on us , ( like as a muslim when the matter comes with meat i have heard lots of people say that we can eat their meat as they are ahlil kitab, which is available in wall mart, or smith.

2. what Islam says about Music? Now a days  every one listens to music, as if it is not bad at all, and admire them . Continue reading

‘list of snacks ‘

Note: Here is a list that has been to us by a senior member of the community. This list by no means gives an indication that all the items on this list are halal. This list makes reference to those products that do not contain pork. As Muslims there are many that wish to not only abstain from pork but other animal products that have not been slaughtered through what can be termed as religiously sanctioned methods. This list makes matters easy towards the added nudge of finding out a little more as to the halal nature of products prior to consumption.
