Since becoming Shia I have had a bit of difficulty eating zabihah meat. I am college student, and my parents do not eat zabihah so our meals are not made of zabihah food. I try to avoid eating the meat as much as I can, but I do not want to displease my parents by not eating with them. How should I deal with such a matter as eating zabihah is something which we must do?

It’s matter of Halal and Haram so you can’t compromise but you have to sort it out anyway. If the meat is not from an islamically slaughtered animal you can’t eat it, it’s haram. But you have many choice to replace your non vegetarian food with vegetarian. Also are your parents are not aware that you have accepted Islam?
