What is the ruling on selling alcohol and pork in an Islamic country?

حكم بيع الخمر ولحم الخنزير

Praise be to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and his companions.

To proceed:

It is not permissible to sell alcohol and pork because they are prohibited by Quran, Sunnah and unanimity. This is according to a hadith transmitted by Bukhari (2236) and Muslim (1851) from YazidIbn Abu Habib who heard from ‘Ataa’ Ibn Abu Rabah on the authority of Jabir who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace be on him), in the year of the Conquest of Mecca, saying, “Allah and His Apostle made illegal the trade of alcohol, dead animals, pigs and idols”. This prohibition is incumbent upon every Muslim whether s/he is in an Islamic state or not, and whether the buyer is a Muslim or a disbeliever.
And Allah knows best.

Your brother,

Dr. Khalid al-Mosleh
