First and foremost, according to a Hadith in Al-Tirmidhi, it has been narrated by Hadhrat Abu Darda (Radi Allah Anho) that alcohol is the key to all evil; this is consuming it or selling it. It is totally Haraam to sell alcohol and the income earned is also Haraam.

It is Haraam for a Muslim to sell something that is Haraam for him to eat or use. The Holy Prophet, Hadhrat Muhammad-ur Rasullullaah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, “If Allah Taa’la makes Haraam the consumption of something; He also makes Haraam its transaction.” (Musnad Ahmad, Hadith no. 2546)

Islam is a consistent religion. When it says that something is bad and forbidden, then it wants Muslims to avoid it for themselves and for others. If a Muslim sells Haraam things, he is not only inconsistent in his behaviour; he is also ridiculing the law of Allah Taa’la. He does not care what is right and what is wrong. It is right if other Muslims avoid business with this person. This will be a good reminder for this person to come back to the rules of Allah Taa’la.

Hadhrat Anas (Radi Allah Anho) says that the Holy prophet, Hadhrat Muhammad-ur Rasullullaah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) cursed ten people in connection with wine; the wine-presser, the one who has it pressed, the one who drinks it, the one who conveys it, the one to whom it is conveyed, the one who serves it, the one who sells it, the one who benefits from the price paid for it, the one who buys it and the one for whom it is bought. (Al-Tirmidhi) My advice for you is to find other job and ask Allah for giving you or finding you halal job or never give the haram shop or job. Salam. Remember me in ur dua brother/sister

so if i'm in nyc and i come out of the liquor store with a bottle of jack and hail a cab. the muslim cab driver should have the right to not transport me with my liquor?

see friend, here is were your laissez faire (live and let live) runs into problems. i have no problem with you having your religion and me having none. it's muslims who have problems with those of us who wish to live our lives out in freedom. we have already had muslim cab drivers in minnesota not allowing helper dogs for the handicapped in their cabs.

or worst your hudood is full of fascist ideology.

Islam is not about being better than you, its about showing you what is better. If you don't like that well then don't know what to tell ya!

Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar (Radi ALLAH Taalah Anhu):The Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: "Allah has cursed wine, its drinker, its server, its seller, its buyer, its presser, the one for whom it is pressed, the one who conveys it, and the one to whom it is conveyed". [Sunan Abu Dawood, Book 26, Number 3666]

i do not know if u could be considered a seller i mean u don't run the place or own it and u definitely don't sell it to them u just scan and bag , ask an imam and see what he will tell u but if u can quit then do that. Assalamu Alikum
