I have a friend coming over to visit me, we used to work together and the cafeteria we ate at was Halal, never really went eating outside that, but anyways yeh I haven’t seen him in a long time and he’s never been to this city so I was planning on giving him the grand tour of my favorite restaraunts here and what not… then after I had planned Brazillian BBQ, Greek food, ect… I realized… Halal. Which kinda throws a wrench in the plans. I don’t want to insult him, I know he is religious and probably won’t be willing to eat non-halal food.
Is it rude if I ask him if non-halal is ok? if he says he must eat halal, what type of places should I look for? Can he eat non-meat dishes that aren’t halal?
From a muslim point of view, if I just plan to eat at a bunch of middle eastern restaraunts, will he be insulted? Kind of like if I went to Egypt, I wouldn’t want my host to take me to mcdonalds, burgerking and kfc.
