    Title: As Salam wa ale kum, I am living in Dubai. My question is here in Duabi there are many Supermarkets selling Pork meat (Sppinies, Lal's, Choitram Al Maya etc.) They have seperate area within the shop where it is mentioned "Pork Shop Muslims are not Allowed" It looks that that area is seperated but practically counter is same and loading area, Air conditioning system is same for whole area. Is it permissible to buy eatieris from these shop ?? Please reply as soon as possible.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    One can purchase lawful items from such a shop, it is not impermissible. But, if there are other markets with lawful items only free from unlawful items, it is better and precaution to purchase the necessities from the other market.
