A Muslim group is offering a grant to help store owners sell fresh foods instead of liquor, pork and other Islam-proscribed merchandise

When he is done, he returns to his perch behind the counter, where he sells liquor, lottery tickets and pork skins — all forbidden by the Quran and the Prophet Muhammad.
