Alcohol-Poem by Javed Javed

According to Sunan Ibn-I-Majah Volume 3, Book of Intoxicants, Chapter 30 Hadith No. 3380.
It was reported by Anas (may Allah be pleased with him), that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said: "God’s curse falls on ten groups of people who deal with alcohol. The one who distills it, the one for whom it has been distilled, the one who drinks it, the one who transports it, the one to who it has been brought, the one whom serves it, the one who sells it, the one who utilizes money from it, the one who buys it and the one who buys it for someone else."

Qur'an 5:90 - O You who have chosen to be graced with belief! Intoxicants and gambling and games of chance, sacrificing animals on stones (altars of idols) and forecasting the future by such means as arrows, raffles and omens (all) is an immoral handiwork of Satan. Refrain from it that you may prosper. [Handiwork of Satan, since these things are based on vain emotions at the cost of human intellect]

Alcohol! Devil's Sedition!

Islam - Prohibits Alcohol

The Universe

The entire universe and all its contents are the creation of Allah. The Earth and the Skies, Sun, Moon and Stars, Mountains and Oceans, all living creatures and each and everything owes its existence to Allah and Allah alone.
Almighty Allah says in the Holy Quraan:
"Behold! In the creation of the Heavens and the Earth; In the alteration of the Night and the Day; In the sailing of the Ships through the Ocean for the profit of Mankind; In the Rain which Allah sends down from the Skies, and the Life which He gives therewith, to an Earth that is Dead; In the Beasts of all kinds that He scatters through the Earth; In the change of the Winds, and the Clouds which they trail like their slaves between the Sky and the Earth; (Here) Indeed are Signs for a People that are Wise."
(Surah Al-Baqarah:164)
It is clearly evident from the above verse that Almighty Allah created everything and all these creations function according to Allah's wishes and commands.

The Human Being

Then followed the creation of the Human Being.
Almighty Allah states: "Man We did create from a Quintessence (of clay)." (Surah Mominoon:12)
Amongst all of Allah's creations the Human Being has been honoured as the best. Almighty Allah says: "We have indeed created man in the best of moulds." (Surah At-Teen:4)
So the world was created and so was man.
There is no fault in Allah's creation. To man, Allah gave the purest and best nature, and man's duty is to preserve the pattern on which Allah has made him.
Almighty Allah has exalted the Human even higher than the Angels, but if he uses his will and discretion is wrong then he will be abased to the lowest possible position.

The Shariah

Only Allah knows what is right and beneficial for His creation, and alternatively what is wrong and harmful. The Holy Quraan clearly states the lawful and unlawful actions. All Humans must follow this Law of Allah which is known as the `Shariah' or Islamic Law.
Amongst the clear-cut prohibitions is the use of Alcohol in any form whatsoever.

The Quraan Prohibits Alcohol

Regarding Alcohol - The Holy Quraan states: "They ask Thee concerning Wine and Gambling, Say: In them is great sin, and some profit, for men; but the sin is greater than the profit." (Surah Al-Baqarah:219)
The Arabic word used in this text is Khamr which is applied to all intoxicating liquor or drug.
The Quraan further states in Surah Al-Maaidah verse 90: "O Ye who believe! Intoxicants and Gambling, Sacrificing to Stones, and (divination by) Arrows, are an abomination, of Satan's handiwork; Keep away from such, that Ye may prosper."

Take Heed - Oh Muslims!

Quraanic evidence has been presented to you regarding the use of Alcohol. Allah - The All Knowing and full of Wisdom knows what is best for us - His creation. We must abstain fully from all forms and uses of alcohol.

No - Drinking!

So, firstly, all Muslims must not consume Alcohol at all. It is amongst the Major Sins and will have to be accounted for on the day of Judgement. Besides the Islamic ruling, we all know too well the harms of this evil. This is one of the main roots of corruption in society. Violence, family tragedies, suicides are a few of the fatal results of this disease. May Almighty Allah save us all. Ameen.

No - Selling!

The selling of Alcohol is also forbidden. It is completely Haraam for Muslims to be trading in this trade. It is also forbidden to sell alcohol as part of your business. Grocers, Newsagents and Mini-Market traders should keep this in mind. Therefore, no question remains regarding trading in Off-Licences, Pubs or Public Houses. In selling of these in Take-Aways and Restaurants also is completely Haraam. Muslims should also not work or employ any of their family members in such Haraam Environments.
May Allah give us the right understanding. Ameen.


The consumption of Alcohol can destroy families, communities and in fact a whole locality. Man commits such autrocious crimes in the state of being drunk which can only be described as babaric and ruthless. A life of a drunkard becomes hell and of all those connected with him. And remember, it's an addiction. A few drops will lead to a glassful which in turn will lead to bottles. Then there will be no stopping.
Selling these products makes ones livelihood Haraam. All his life will pass through Haraam. His clothing, sustenance e.t.c. if bought from this income will also be doubtful. So, Oh Muslims - Take heed and abstain from the mother and roots of all vices and evils. May Allah grant us the right understanding. Ameen-Ya-Rabbal-A'lameen.

We are all in denial about alcohol-related illnesses

'Take a lawn full of drunks and their families and contemplate the fact that only a quarter will recover'
By Fergal Keane
Saturday, 2 March 2002

It is one of those media friendly terms that covers up a multitude. Alcohol-related illnesses. This week we were told that these illnesses are in danger of destroying the NHS and are responsible for 33,000 deaths every year, and that eight out of 10 people attending emergency units have alcohol related injuries.

It is one of those media friendly terms that covers up a multitude. Alcohol-related illnesses. This week we were told that these illnesses are in danger of destroying the NHS and are responsible for 33,000 deaths every year, and that eight out of 10 people attending emergency units have alcohol related injuries.

In a society that encourages us to escape pain rather than face it, alcohol is the favourite anaesthetic. Yet alcohol related illnesses doesn't have the "oh my god", scare-you-witless, let's-find-a-cure-fast resonance of a word such as cancer or leukaemia, nor is it loaded with dread like the phrase sexually transmitted disease. How many people hear alcohol-related illness and think of a sick head in the morning, a transitory discomfort that will be gone by afternoon?

Before I get going, let me enter an all too important caveat: I am not remotely anti-booze. God bless good wine and beer and whiskey, "beakers full of the warm south with beaded bubbles winking at the brim and purple stained mouth" etc. Or as Flann O'Brien's "poet of the people" put it when eulogising Guinness stout in the comic masterpiece At Swim Two Birds: "When food is scarce and your larder bare, and no rashers grease your pan... a pint of plain is your only man."

If you can drink and not succumb to one of those mysterious alcohol-related illnesses, the best of luck to you. But if you are one of those whom booze seduces and then betrays, if you spend your days and nights chasing the warm rainbow, then this week's news should be very scary indeed.

Are you the one in company who is watching the wine bottle and wondering whether the others will think it odd if you order another and then saying to hell with what they think? Or the one who sees a friend leaving a glass of wine unfinished and wonders what in God's name is wrong with them? Maybe you are the guy who wakes up and for a few terrifying minutes has no earthly idea where he is or what he did last night, or the woman who rolls over and looks into the face of a stranger and wonders if she will be able to get up and get dressed and escape before they wake. And if you have known that morning where nothing lifts you – not beer or wine or whiskey – then alcohol-related illness is already with you. It's screwing with your head and in time will get around to your body.

That poor body. There's no end of misery that alcohol can bring. Liver, pancreas, heart, bowel slowly poisoned to death. That's usually well under way before the exterior starts falling apart: before pissing blood and the yellow pallor and parchment skin; before the amputated leg or the body immobilised by a stroke; before the brain reduced to mush from all those tides of booze washing over it down the years.
I have been to the funerals of many friends who have fallen into alcoholic death. It is never, ever an easy death. Scrub from your mind forever the notion of a romantic drunkard's death, disregard every admiring profile you read of the rebellious drunken singer/poet. I read that rubbish and think of a man who choked to death on his own vomit, a man who died of heart failure and wasn't found for a week, the beautiful woman with an angel's voice found bloated and poisoned on her kitchen floor, a man who died far from those he loved in a small room in a town where nobody knew him. Every one of them left people behind burdened with the question: why?

Alcohol-related illnesses. If you have ever visited a hospital for alcoholics on a weekend when the kids are visiting, you'll have seen the illness in its saddest and most cruel form. Take a lawn full of drunks and their families and contemplate the fact that at best only a quarter will recover from alcoholism. Regard every alcohol-related illness as a huge stone cast into a small pond, as a family broken and bewildered, made sick too by the disease in its midst.

I agree with Alcohol Concern; there is no bigger health crisis facing Britain. Yet we remain curiously indifferent to the damage done to family life and the immense burden being placed on the health service. Ask any recovering alcoholic and they gladly accept that responsibility for their sobriety is theirs alone. But that is the rationale of a person who has made the first vital step towards recognising that a problem exists.
The first obstacle is the chronic denial around alcoholic illness. It is everywhere around us, the elephant in the sitting room we refuse to acknowledge. Hardly a family in the land is unaffected by the problem – most people know a cousin or a friend who battles with booze – yet there was a sense of shock when this week's statistics were unveiled. It is difficult for families to face up to the issue in a society that is awash with denial.

Booze is embedded in our national rituals, the socially acceptable drug. Far easier to rave on about heroin and junkies than to face alcohol addiction. Popular culture celebrates drunkenness (for a good example of what I mean, witness the moronic behaviour trotted out on ITV's Holiday Reps programme each week). We ban cigarette advertising from television but allow the continued flogging of booze. We have high-alcohol drinks cynically aimed at the most vulnerable – I mean imagine the marketing strategy behind Special Brew. Just who is the target market? I can think of two immediate candidates: the young and the poor with little money who want to get pissed fast, and the alcoholic chasing oblivion.

When victims of alcohol abuse get sick they find a medical system woefully ill equipped to deal with the crisis. Alcohol Concern carried out a survey last August that found that 71 per cent of doctors and nurses interviewed felt they had insufficient information to help dependent drinkers. You might imagine that, with alcohol costing the NHS £3bn a year, politicians might express a sense of urgency. But like the rest of us they are cocooned in denial.

This isn't a crisis that can be solved with drugs. They can help you out of detox, but meaningful treatment depends on skilled counsellors. Right now we have a chronic shortage of hospital places for those suffering from alcoholic illnesses. We dry out the drunks and put them back on the street and they come back again and again. Many find their way into the criminal justice system. Not just the street drunks banged away for being drunk and disorderly, but also the businessmen and women hauled off to the cells because they've trashed the house or committed an assault, the man who kills in the middle of a blackout.

I normally rush for the door when I hear a politician or civil servant droning on about "co-ordinated strategy". But the scale of damage being done by alcohol-related illness demands action across the widest range of areas. It means a huge increase in funding for alcoholism treatment and research and a willingness on the part of political leaders and the media to end the denial. We must talk about this stuff that kills so many, bring the healthcare professionals, the criminal justice system, the media and the drinks industry into a public debate. To the millions caught in the middle of this nightmare, something better is owed than the present dishonest shambles.
