Drinking Alcohol

Abu Dawud reported that the Prophet (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) said,Allah has cursed wine, and whoever drinks it, pours it, buys it, presses it for another, presses it for himself, carries it or accept its delivery.” (Ahmad and At-Tabarani)





Allah, Most High says, {O ye who believe! Intoxicants and gambling, sacrificing to stones and (divination by) arrows, is an abomination, of Satan’s handiwork: Eschew such (abomination) that ye may prosper. Satan’s plan is (but) to excite enmity and hatred between you, with intoxicants and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allah, and from Prayer: will ye not then abstain?} (Al-Ma’idah: 90-91)





Thus, Allah Ta’ala the Exalted forbids wine and warns us of approaching it.






The Prophet (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) said,Avoid wine, it is the mother of abomination. “(It is a part of a hadith reported by Ad-Darqutni, An-Nasa’i and AI-Baihaqi)




Therefore, if anyone does not avoid it, he then disobeys Allah Ta’ala and His Messenger (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) and thus entails punishment.






Allah the Almighty says, {But those who disobey Allah and His Messenger and transgress His limits will be admitted to a fire, to abide therein: and they shall have a humiliating punishment.} (An-Nisa’i: 14)




Every intoxicant is wine and every wine is unlawful. Whoever drinks it in the world and dies addictive to it without repentance, he will not drink it in the Hereafter.“(Muslim, Abu Dawud, At- Tirmidhi and Ahmad)





Three people, Allah will deprive them of Paradise; the drunkard, the one who shows disrespect to his parents and the pimp who admits what his family do of abomination”. (Ahmad, An-Nasa’i and AI-Hakim)






Further, Allah Ta’ala does not accept the good deeds of a drunkard. Jabir Ibn ‘ Abdullah relates that the Prophet (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) said,


There are Three people from whom Allah does not accept their Prayer nor do their good deeds rise up to heaven: the fleeing slave until he returns to his masters and surrends to them, the woman who annoys her husband until he is pleased with her, and the drunkard until he becomes conscious” (Ibn khuzaimah and Ai-Baihaqi)




The Arabic word Khamr is what befogs the mind in whatever form: soft, solid, edible or beverage.





Abu Sa’id Al-Khudari related that the Prophet (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasalaam) said,




Allah does not accept the Prayers from him who drinks wine so long as there is still something of it in his body” (An-Nasa’i)






Whoever drinks wine Allah never accepts what he does: Whoever is intoxicated by drinking it will not have his Prayers accepted for forty morning (days). If he repents but drinks again, Allah will make him drink from the molten brass of the Hell-fire.”(This has many references; the nearest narration to it is reported by Ibn Majah and An-Nasa’i)
