No, it’s misleading others.

Misleading others how? The Scripture doesn’t use that sort of specific language.

Paul gives the same unequivical instruciton:

Let’s not take your word for it, but let’s examine the context:

24 Let no one seek his own, but each one the other's well-being.
25 Eat whatever is sold in the meat market, asking no questions for conscience' sake;
26 for "the earth is the Lord's, and all its fullness."
27 If any of those who do not believe invites you to dinner, and you desire to go, eat whatever is set before you, asking no question for conscience' sake.
28 But if anyone says to you, "This was offered to idols," do not eat it for the sake of the one who told you, and for conscience' sake; for "the earth is the Lord's, and all its fullness."
29"Conscience," I say, not your own, but that of the other. For why is my liberty judged by another man's conscience?
30 But if I partake with thanks, why am I evil spoken of for the food over which I give thanks?
31 Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. (1 Cor. 10)
There is no absolute prohibition in this passage against eating meat sacrificed to idols. See Jesus’ words in Matt. 15:11.

However, it is for the conscience of the other (the unbeliever) who told us “this meat is sacrificed to idols” that we should abstain. There it is in black and white. What part did I get wrong?

Me, I care about people who might be mislead into thinking islam is a road to heaven.

Misquoting and misinterpreting the Bible does not demonstrate a care for people, no matter how noble the cause. Trying to be holier than Jesus and making others do the same won’t work either.

Besides, you folks still have shown that “eating Halal” violates by biblical command.

You are intentionally confusing salvation issues with “best practice” issues, and not an honest person.

This is clear:

“You must abstain from eating food offered to idols, from consuming blood or the meat of strangled animals, and from sexual immorality.”

Paul gives the same unequivical instruciton:

“But if someone says to you, “This has been offered in sacrifice,” then do not eat it”
