Halal (; Arabic: حلال ḥalāl, "permissible"), also spelled hallal or halaal, refers to what is permissible or lawful in traditional Islamic law. It is frequently applied to permissible food and drinks.
As long as the animal is alive at the time of slaughtering, its meata would be halal.
And Allah knows best
No one has a right to pick in Islamic rules whatever he feels more logical for him. We must obey Allah even if our thinking based on our limited knowledge does not digest it. The orders of Allah are taken from the Prophet (SAWA) and his Holy Progeny Ahlul Bayt (AS). You need to follow the most highest scholar ( Marje' of Taqleed) to seek guidance.
If one knows that a product is fried with non-halal meat, then it would become najis (impure) and haram to eat. If one didn't know then there is no sin upon them.

In principle yes, but we must keep in mind the importance of our time as our most important capital, and never waste our time in things which have no benefit for us in this life and hereafter. It is allowed to play sports and engage in recreation activities which have no wrong in it, but we should never neglect the importance of our time which should be used in achieving the main aims of our life for which we were been created.
It is not permissible for a Muslim to deliver alcohol, beer as well as pork to any one even to non Muslims.
Other non Halal food can be delivered to non Muslims who are allowed by their religion to consume it.
It is not obligatory to feed our pets Halal meat or food, though it is better to do so if we can, but it is not Haraam to feed our pets non Halal food. Non Halal food is Haraam (not allowed) forus but not Haraam on animals.
Shrimp (prawn) is Halal. It is not Makrouh. It is the only sea food which is Halal beside the fish with scales. Shrimp is Halal according to Shia and Sunni sects.
If the food has animal ingredients, you must be sure that it is Halal before consuming it. Animal ingredients are not allowed for eating before being sure that it is Halal.
If the food has no animal ingredients, nor alcohol, and you don't know that it has Najis ingredients, then it will be allowed for you to consume it.
Earning a halal income is an act of worship and is pleasing to Allah swt. Yes, it is true that some jobs may also fit into different catergories too. For example a job which involves charity related work such as helping the needy people or orphans could fall under the category of mustahab jobs. You may then get jobs which fall under the category of makruh such as selling Kafans or working in a slaughterhouse. Such jobs although not haram, become makruh as a kafan seller may wish more people to die for sales to go up, and the one who slaughters animals for meat, may become used to such an action and cold hearted.
What one should be careful of is falling into a job which is in the haram category making ones income unlawful.
May Allah grant you success
Non Muslim seller who claims that the meat he is selling or wants to sell is Halal can not be taken as an authentic evidence that the meat is really Halal. If Muslim tells you that his meat is Halal and you have no reason to doubt his statement, then you can take the neat as Halal.
Restaurants selling alcohol or pork can never be trusted as utensils and plates used in cooking or serving alcohol or pork become Najis and and every other food put in Najis utensils and plates becomes Najis as well.
This is not "music" (please, no one get angry at me or insulted because I am calling this "music"!), but I found it interesting the way they have arranged the NASHEED in an orchestral manner, and it seems to fall into the category of "halal":
Prohibitions are based on hadith. Interpretations of Islamic law which allow for use of musical instruments are based on reconsidering the applicability/correctness of those hadith or the cultural context.
For instance, the type of music that is mentioned in hadith was usually associated with licentious behaviour, alcohol, dancing slave girls, and other ethically problematic things, whereas elevator music does not have those connotations today. Still, it is good to consider that certain instruments may have positive or negative effects on people ethically or spiritually, and not to assume that everything is cultural context - God knows best.
We are not allowed to invest in any company dealing with unlawful activities no matter how much is the percentage of it. Muslim is allowed to invest when 100% of the business is lawful.
