A long answer is available at Islam Q&A, article 40882. In this case, the Qur'an itself provides an explanation: 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. Say, "The excess [beyond needs]." Thus Allah makes ...

None of the four items you mention are permitted in Islam. The general ruling is that anything harming the intellect and/or health is forbidden. Wine and beer are forbidden by a clear text, marijuana is forbidden by analogy (and by falling under the definition of khamr which is forbidden by text), and cigarettes are forbidden because they are harmful to ...

If you think logically, all the prohibitions and responsibilities are for a purpose. To make both a human and a society better. Now, I will try to explain your list, but for more, you should do some research about them. You can search like "what is the logic behind this x rule?". Sex before marriage: The family is the key cell of a good society. Marriage ...

The relevant hadith is: Jabir (RAA) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: "If a large quantity of any beverage intoxicates, then a small amount of it is prohibited."

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 . / . (ديدگاه علامه طباطبايي و سيد جعفر مرتضي عاملي؛ ر.ك: الميزان, ج 16, ص 163, الصحيح من سيره النبي الاعظم, ج 4, ص 43) Before Ohod war in the third year of Hejrah ...

The impracticality of totally eliminating alcohol consumption Alcohol occurs naturally in the food we eat and the drinks we drink: Ethanol production has also been observed under natural conditions in such tissues as germinating seeds, fruits, and root tips. -- Cossins and Beevers, Ethanol Metabolism in Plant Tissues, Plant Physiol. 1963 (link) ......

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 ...

It's going to be what you expect: these things are halal. The only context I can think of where grapes (or grape juice) might be haram is if they're being (mis) used for making alcohol, as per the hadith: It was narrated from Ibn ‘Umar that the Messenger of Allah said: Wine is cursed from ten angles: The wine itself, the one who squeezes (the grapes etc)...

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). The prohibition is on the consumption/drinking of alcohol. Therefore, so long as the perfumes doesn't contain anything unclean it is permissible to use them. But is impermissible to wear ...

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. [grade: hasan] (sunnah.com) In this way, 0.5% was declared insufficient to render a drink an intoxicant in some ...

AFAIK, there are nothing against us using perfume that contains alcohol other than for the sake of being careful. "That which intoxicates in large quantities is prohibited in small quantities." (Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, and others, with a sound chain of narrators) Since it has been understood that alcohol have the qualities of being ...

Dan, I see that you are punishing yourself by thinking about to many things. You know, Islam is about taking one step at the time. Those questions you ask, some of them need much expiation and some dont. Also some of the questions are assumptions that are not true or not true in their context you have stated them. You must also know that scholars from the ...

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. Jami` at-...

these verses are as follows : يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنَّمَا الْخَمْرُ وَالْمَيْسِرُ وَالْأَنصَابُ وَالْأَزْلَامُ رِجْسٌ مِّنْ عَمَلِ الشَّيْطَانِ فَاجْتَنِبُوهُ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ O you who believe! intoxicants and games of chance and (sacrificing to) stones set up and (dividing by) arrows are only an uncleanness, the Shaitan's work; shun it ...

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. Just because "alcohol", "wine" and "being drunk" are explicitly stated in the Quran does not mean that all other things which can harm, intoxicate or hurt you (like "weed", "cigarettes" ...

You're familiar with 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. Sunan an-Nasa'i 5609 [grade: hasan] (Also graded as hasan at Jami' at-Tirmidhi.) An IslamToday.net fatwa, in the context of non-alcoholic beers, gives this way of understanding ...

One reason alcoholic drinks are prohibited in this world is that the bad things in it are more than the good in it. "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." Quran 2:219 but the drinks in the hereafter would be free from the bad effects, it is ...

As far as as I understood your Question. I can't see where the problem is. If the Muslims who want to organize or get married just, let the owner -I suppose he is non-Muslim and you are in a non-Muslim country- of the venue know that they don't want any kind of alcohol being served during the wedding and he accepted everything is fine. Neither does the ...

Prohibited as proven in Quran: Say, “My Lord has only forbidden immoralities – what is apparent of them and what is concealed – and sin, and oppression without right, and that you associate with Allah that for which He has not sent down authority, and that you say about Allah that which you do not know.” So Allah has forbidden immoralities. This is ...

If we can distill all the alcohol out, is it still haram? First, this is not permissible, as per the hadith (as cited in an Islam Q&A fatwa): Abu Talhah asked the prophet (ﷺ) about the orphans who had inherited wine. He replied: Pour it out. He asked: May I not make vinegar of it? He replied : No. -- Sunan Abi Dawud 3675 [grade: sahih] (sunnah.com) (...

Under any circumstances, the answer is the same. The forbiddance of both alcohol and swine is well established in Islam and is not contextual; hence, no specific fatwa is required. Any act that one does to assist oneself or someone else to obtain or consume any such forbidden items is a cooperation on sin and transgression that Allah has commanded us not to ...

Prohibition of Wine is not dependent on it being intoxicating, rather wine is ritually unclean in itself: الخمر والميسر والأنصاب والأزلام رجس من عمل الشيطان فاجتنبوه لعلكم تفلحون Wine, gambling, altars and divining arrows are filth, made up by Satan. Therefore, refrain from it, so that you may be successful. — Quran 5:90 قوله تعالى : رجس يدل على نجاستها ; ...

Hadith: Wine is cursed from ten angles: The wine itself, the one who squeezes (the grapes etc), the one for whom it is squeezed, the one who sells it, the one who buys it, the one who carries it, the one to whom it is carried, the one who consumes its price, the one who drinks it and the one who pours it. In general, and by logic, it is haram “to ...

Actually it is in the Christian scripture not to get drunk with alcohol, in at least two different places: Proverbs 20:1 King James Version (KJV) 20 Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise. Ephesians 5:18 New International Version (NIV) 18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be ...

Graded sahih and narrated by Abdullah ibn Umar the following Hadith states: يَقُولُ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ "‏ لَعَنَ اللَّهُ الْخَمْرَ وَشَارِبَهَا وَسَاقِيَهَا وَبَائِعَهَا وَمُبْتَاعَهَا وَعَاصِرَهَا وَمُعْتَصِرَهَا وَحَامِلَهَا وَالْمَحْمُولَةَ إِلَيْهِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ The Prophet (ﷺ) said: Allah has cursed wine, its drinker, its ...

As long as you don't serve (provided it's only serving that you will be doing and not preparing etc) alcohol or any non-halal food, you're all good and your earning is halal, otherwise it's not and it's a sin.
