Questions and AnswersCategory: QuestionsIs it permissible to sell this product
Yousuf Abidi asked 2 weeks ago

Asalam Alekum, 
We need clarity regarding if its permissible to sell a product, we are retailers into ecommerce business and sell products with good potential, We are thinking to sell a product that is a smoke infuser, The purpose of the product is to infuse flavored smoke on food and drinks, How it works is that we place it on a glass dome or glass and add flavored wooden chips on top of it and burn the chips which infuses the food or drinks with flavor essence, Its used to infuse food like cheese meat and various drinks. The problem is in the western world a lot of people also use it to infuse their alcoholic drinks with it to add a flavored essence to it, due to this it is also being named as “cocktail smoker” 
Our question is whether it is alright to sell a product which has multiple utility like smoking meat or cheese as well as people utilizing it to smoke their alcoholic drink?
For this example you can take as selling a juice, juice is a flavored beverage that is used for drinking while people may also add it to their alcoholic drinks to add flavor to it, another example you can consider is selling ice, while the primary utility of ice is to cold anything it is also used in alcoholic drinks. Or that the wine glass is not necessarily used for wine only yet it is called a wine glass.

Your clarity on this regard will be appreciated. Can we sell cocktail infuser?
