I have a metal plate in my arm that was caused by a car bombing. I started taking tramadol to relief my pain but i got into an addiction problem with it so later i stopped. The doctor then told me about Absolut vodka and he said that it was intended to be a medicine/drug that could be used medically but then they just sold it was vodka, he also said that it has 0% of addiction.

Should i take it for my severe pain or is it haram?

  • Is this doctor a Muslim? You always have the right to ask for a second opinion (go to an other physician for example) and you should tell that alcohol consummation is an issue for you and you would only do so if there's no other option.

  • @medi1saif he's not a muslim, and he did mention that Muslims can't take it because it is haram but I told him that i might be able to take it if it was initially made to be a medicine. I can't go to another doctor cause I'm getting medication abroad and I was assigned to this doctor by my country's agency here. Nov 29 '18 at 9:05
  • There’s a Du’a in which you can ask the best doctor there is to heal you up, and there is no need for you to implement the advice given by this doctor you went.

In the Quran,Our Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad P.B.u.h said if a huge amount of drugs are you going to insane, its minimum amount are haram. but on the other hand Doctor said to you that you take it small amount, being a Muslim you completely disobey the Doctors advice because it is totals against the teaching of Islam.

  • Are u saying that it's okay to take small amounts or is it not?? Nov 29 '18 at 9:05
  • small amount too is prohibited, completely deny of taking drugs. Nov 29 '18 at 9:13

    This is a hadith not from the Quran. Also it is a rather poor paraphrasing of the hadith, it talks about intoxication not insanity.
