Question

I live with my family in the USA and then my
dad have liquor store when I told him we
have to get out and looking for Halaal and he
said am not going to sell in cheap price do
I perpetrate sins when I help and Allah
know that I don't want to help him but I
don't want him to say that I disobey to
him please tell me the right way? If my
daddy sold the store and get the money
and open Halaal business do god will
forgive us because I being say to my
dad everyday sell it where we going to
escape from Allah in that day please tell
me what to do?

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

Selling intoxicants (liquor) is one of the
major great sins. The seller is cursed by the
Prophet who said: "Allah has cursed
intoxicants, its drinker, its server, its seller,
its buyer, its presser, the one who demands
it to be pressed, its carrier, the one to whom
it is conveyed and the one who consumes its
price ." [Abu Daawood] A similar narration is
reported by Imaams At-Tirmithi, Ibn Maajah
and Ahmad.
Selling intoxicants is among the major great
sins whether it is sold expensively or
cheaply. Most probably, the sin may increase
if one sells at a high price because whenever
the forbidden earnings increase the sin also
becomes intensified.

Therefore, your father has to fear Allah,
repent immediately and should give up
selling intoxicants. You are not allowed to
offer any kind of help in this trade, if you
help him you will participate in the sin.
Allah, the Glorified and the Exalted, Says
(which means): {And cooperate in
righteousness and piety, but do not
cooperate in sin and aggression. And fear
Allah; indeed, Allah is severe in penalty.}
[Quran 5:2]. Your hindrance from helping
your father is not considered as being
undutiful to him as the obedience of parents
is restricted only in lawful matters. Obeying
them in unlawful matters is forbidden. The
Prophet said: "No obedience (to
somebody) is allowed in disobeying Allah, for
obedience is required only in what is
permitted ." [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
You and your father both should repent to
Allah, the Glorified and the Exalted; whoever
repents to Allah, He accepts his repentance
and grants him forgiveness. Allah Says (which
means): { But indeed, I am the Perpetual
Forgiver of whoever repents and believes and
does righteousness and then continues in
guidance.}[Quran 20:82].
As for your living and eating from your
father's income, if his income is mixed
(lawful and unlawful) or unlawful income
prevails then you may eat it but it is
undesirable. If the income of your father is
solely unlawful then you are not allowed to
eat it unless you are poor and unable to earn
then you may take only what suffices your
dire needs till you become able to earn for
yourself.

As for the prayer at that place, we hope that
it is valid if it is performed fulfilling all its
conditions and compulsory actions.
You may get the addresses of Islamic centers
by consulting any Islamic center in
California. It is also possible to take the
print out of Fataawa from our site that prove
the prohibition of intoxicants and its harms
and to distribute them among Muslims.
Finally, we encourage you to advise your
father and other Muslim brothers who are
involved in such business to give up this
practice and remind them of the punishment
of Allah, His wrath, the Day of Judgment and
the time of standing in front of Allah, bare
footed and naked in a Day equal to fifty
thousand years. In this matter, you may seek
the help of pious brothers, responsible
persons of Islamic centers and Imaams and
Khateebs of mosques, in addition to
supplicating Allah to guide them and, He will
accept the supplications, Inshaa' Allah.
We ask Allah, the Glorified and the Exalted,
to improve the conditions of all Muslims.
Allah Knows best.
