|Subject: The Difference Between the Wine and Alcohol of this World and That of the Next Thu Jul 08, 2010 5:51 pm|| |
QuestionWe all know that alcohol is forbidden for us in this world and that it intoxicates and causes confusions, which is why it is filthy, why drinking it is from the acts of Shaitan, and why – as the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu 'Alayhi wa Sallam) informed us – it is the mother of evil deeds. Noble Shaikh, my question is this: Why is alcohol forbidden in this life and permitted in the next? Answer
The wine of the Hereafter is pure; it neither intoxicates nor harms. It is the wine of this world only that intoxicates, harms, and confuses. All of the direct and indirect harms associated with the wine of this world are non-existent in the wine of the next life.
Shaikh Ibn Baz (Rahimahullah)
