As-Salaam Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Baraktuhu
I'm new to Australia and ended up staying with 2 other Indian guys. They are nice and sweet and help me in cooking. I have my separate room whereas they share a double room. Both of them are non-muslims. Since here there is minimal Halal food in the locality, they understand my situation and make sure I don't eat any non-halal food by mistake that they bring home or whenever we go outside. I'm happy that they are understanding at least to this extent. But there are 2 problems I face everyday.
1) They cook non-Halal chicken in the same dish as I cook vegetarian food for myself. I wash the dishes and everything. But still, what do I do? I'm helpless.
2) This is the MAIN PROBLEM. Both my room mates drink. They bring bottles of beer and store it in the fridge along with juices that I drink from. They keep used glasses of alcohol lying around in the house without picking it up or washing and keeping it. Near the trash can, beer can tops are lying around and sometimes beer bottles too. Since I don't even touch anything alcohol related, I do my work from the distance and leave that place. But is cooking, eating food and staying, Halal for me in such a situation?
I didn't know these people drink so much. They don't trouble me as I am in my room all the time. But stepping into the kitchen to even drink water is a task.
I cannot change my room until January 2013 as I have signed a bond with the landlord already.
What do I do Brothers?
