Restaurant In Partnership With Non Muslim


Aslmwlkm wwbk…

I am planning to open a restaurant inshallah soon. Food will be halal and permissble however I would like to know if I can have a non muslim partner in the restaurant who will be serving wine in the restaurant.

Please note that wine business will be completely owned and managed by the partner and all accounts/management/cutlery etc will be apart and have no .

Is this type of business permissible as I will be serving only food and non alcholic beverages.

Hoping for your prompt reply.

Wa alaykum salaam.
 As long as you have no contribution towards the wine business nor will you be earning anything from his business, there is no harm.
