i have one brother who wants to convert to Islam but the thing is he is too attached to pork.He says he agrees to convert but he will still be eating pork at the beginning n will hope to stop it in the future. He said even if it doesn’t stop he’ll pray but won’t stop this bad habit. What should i do with him should I allow him to convert or wait till he stops this habit?

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

You should let your brother accept Islam without any delay.

Eating pork is a sin in Islam. That is better than remaining in Kufr.

Inshallah, he will gradually give up the habit of pork through the barakah of Islam.
