O you who have believed, indeed, intoxicants, gambling, [sacrificing on] stone alters [to other than Allah ], and divining arrows are but defilement from the work of Satan, so avoid it that you may be successful.

1. What is the purpose of Allah in making alcohol haram? Because of reasons that are stated in Quran: إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ الشَّيْطَانُ أَن يُوقِعَ بَيْنَكُمُ الْعَدَاوَةَ وَالْبَغْضَاء فِي الْخَمْرِ وَالْمَيْسِرِ وَيَصُدَّكُمْ عَن ذِكْرِ اللّهِ وَعَنِ الصَّلاَةِ فَهَلْ أَنتُم مُّنتَهُونَ Satan only wants to cause between you animosity and hatred through ...

[2:219] They ask you about wine and gambling. Say, "In them is great sin and [yet, some] benefit for people. But their sin is greater than their benefit." And they ask you what they should spend.

When Qur'an was being revealed to Arabs, it was being revealed in stages and it was something new for them and it was supposed to be implemented in their lives and not just recite it.

There are several perspectives concerning the time when Mashroobat-al-alkoli (Alcohol drinks) got haram (forbidden), among: In Mecca and at the beginning of Be’thah . / .

Let's take it chronologically: Yes, at the beginning of Islam alcohol was not prohibited, but it was well known that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) never ever even came close to it! So the first Verse of the Quran which quotes alcohol is (16:67) and faces the intoxication (tippling) with the good provision. (Surat an-Naml is the only Meccan ...

First of all, these hadiths the question talk about needs good understand, and don't just mean what they appear to mean.

TL;DR: The Qur'an and Sunnah didn't come with percentages, so rulings are based around the hadith: It was narrated from 'Amir bin Sa'd, from his father, that: The Prophet [SAW] forbade a small amount of whatever intoxicates in large amounts.

Please note that I am not an Islamic scholar but simply giving you answer with the knowledge I have. In Islam anything which can possibly hurt your health should be avoided.

I think there's a Hadith regarding this: That the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: "Whatever a lot of it intoxicates, a little of it is unlawful." He said: There are narrations on this topic from Sa'd, 'Aishah, 'Abdullah bin 'Amr, Ibn 'Umar, and Khawwat bin Jubair. [Abu 'Eisa said:] This Hadith is Hasan Gharib as a narration of Jabir.

Use of perfumes in general is permissible. And the same ruling applies for perfumes which contain alcohol. This has to do with the fact that alcohol is not najs (unclean).

Quran 2:219 but the drinks in the hereafter would be free from the bad effects, it is ...

Neither does the ...
