Only Allah knows what is right and beneficial for His creation, and
alternatively what is wrong and harmful. The Holy Quraan clearly
states the lawful and unlawful actions. All Humans must follow
this Law of Allah which is known as the 'Shariah' or Islamic Law.
Amongst the clear-cut prohibitions is the use of Alcohol in any
The Quraan Prohibits Alcohol
Regarding Alcohol - The Holy Quraan states: "They ask Thee concerning
Wine and Gambling, Say: In them is great sin, and some profit, for
men; but the sin is greater than the profit." (Surah Al-Baqarah:219)
The Arabic word used in this text is Khamr which is applied to all
intoxicating liquor or drug.
The Quraan further states in Surah Al-Maaidah verse 90: "O Ye who
believe! Intoxicants and Gambling, Sacrificing to Stones, and
(divination by) Arrows, are an abomination, of Satan's handiwork;
Keep away from such, that Ye may prosper."
Take Heed - Oh Muslims!
Quraanic evidence has been presented to you regarding the use of
Alcohol. Allah - The All Knowing and full of Wisdom knows what is
best for us - His creation. We must abstain fully from all forms
and uses of alcohol.
No - Drinking!
So, firstly, all Muslims must not consume Alcohol at all. It is
amongst the Major Sins and will have to be accounted for on the day
of Judgement. Besides the Islamic ruling, we all know too well the
harms of this evil. This is one of the main roots of corruption
in society. Violence, family tragedies, suicides are a few of the
fatal results of this disease. May Almighty Allah save us all.
No - Selling!
The selling of Alcohol is also forbidden. It is completely Haraam
for Muslims to be trading in this trade. It is also forbidden to
sell alcohol as part of your business. Grocers, Newsagents and
Mini-Market traders should keep this in mind. Therefore, no question
remains regarding trading in Off-Licences, Pubs or Public Houses.
In selling of these in Take-Aways and Restaurants also is completely
Haraam. Muslims should also not work or employ any of their family
members in such Haraam Environments.
May Allah give us the right understanding. Ameen.
The consumption of Alcohol can destroy families, communities and
in fact a whole locality. Man commits such autrocious crimes in
the state of being drunk which can only be described as babaric and
ruthless. A life of a drunkard becomes hell and of all those
connected with him. And remember, it's an addiction. A few drops
will lead to a glassful which in turn will lead to bottles. Then
there will be no stopping.
Selling these products makes ones livelihood Haraam. All his life
will pass through Haraam. His clothing, sustenance e.t.c. if bought
from this income will also be doubtful. So, Oh Muslims - Take heed
and abstain from the mother and roots of all vices and evils. May
Allah grant us the right understanding. Ameen-Ya-Rabbal-A'lameen.
