O son of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky and were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I would forgive you. O son of Adam, were you to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth and were you then to face Me, ascribing no partner to Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as it.

There are many examples mentioned in the hadiths and in the Quran to avoid alcohol and intoxications and Ramadan is the best month to stop these things.

Alcohol’s Effects

Intoxications are drug which can effects our mental and physical state, after getting intoxicated most of the people reduce self-consciousness and shyness which leads to make people do things that they end up regretting.

Intoxication not only effects our mental state but it also effects our bodies’ internal organs as it directly effects our liver, and our Brain, continuous consumption of alcohol leads to memory loss.

Many people end their lives in accidents caused by alcoholic influence. Alcohol also leads in weight gain, depression etc.so there are many negative points of intoxication.

Alcohol’s in Islam

In Islam, consumption of any intoxicants (khamr, specifically, alcoholic beverages) is generally forbidden in the Qur’an through several separate verses revealed at different times over a period of years.

Quran makes it clear to us that any form of intoxicating(are both alcohol and drugs) substance is prohibited.

At first, it was forbidden for Muslims to attend prayers while intoxicated.

The three verses concerning alcohol in the Quran were revealed in the following chronological order:

Step 1 – Acknowledgement of both the good and bad side of alcohol, and confirmation that the bad side is worse

They question thee about strong drink and games of chance. Say: In both is great sin, and (some) utility for men; but the sin of them is greater than their usefulness… (Quran 2:219)

Step 2 – Praying while intoxicated is prohibited

O ye who believe! Draw not near unto prayer when ye are drunken, till ye know that which ye utter … (Quran 4:43)



Step 3 – Complete prohibition by asking muslims to abstain from consumption

O ye who believe! Strong drink and games of chance and idols and divining arrows are only an infamy of Satan’s handiwork. Leave it aside in order that ye may succeed. Satan seeketh only to cast among you enmity and hatred by means of strong drink and games of chance, and to turn you from remembrance of Allah and from (His) worship. Will ye then have done? (Quran 5:90-91)

When this was revealed the Muslim citizens of Medina immediately began to destroy and empty their alcohol containers into the streets.  Even those who were guiltlessly enjoying cups of wine spat the alcohol from their mouths.  It is said that the streets of Medina ran with alcohol. Believers today must completely trust God, in the same way that the first Muslims trusted God and understood that He was their only Protector and Provider.  All power and strength comes from God and a scourge like alcohol can be eradicated only when those affected by alcohol turn to God with complete submission.

Prophet Muhammad SAW’s Sayings

“Whoever can afford to offer a sacrifice but does not do so, let him not approach our place of prayer.”

“At the time of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), a man would sacrifice a sheep on behalf of himself and the members of his household, and they would eat from it and give some to others.”

“We sacrificed at al-Hudaybiyah with the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), a camel for seven and a buffalo for seven.”

“Do not sacrifice anything but an adult animal, unless it is difficult for you, in which case you may slaughter a six-month old lamb

(jadh’ah).”

“There are four that will not do for sacrifice: a one-eyed animal whose defect is obvious, a sick animal whose sickness is obvious, a lame animal whose limp is obvious and an emaciated animal that has no marrow in its bones.”

“When you see the new moon of Dhul-Hijjah, and if any one of you intends to offer a sacrifice, let him not remove anything from his hair or nails until he has offered his sacrifice.”

“O! Fatimah get up to witness you sacrifice.”

“The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) slaughtered two rams with his own hand, and he said Bismillaah and Allahu akbar.”

“Whoever slaughters (his sacrifice) before the prayer, it is meat that he has brought to his family, but that is not the sacrifice.”

“Whoever slaughters the sacrifice before he prays, let him replace it with another.”

“The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) did not go out on the day of (Eid) al-Fitr until he had eaten, and he did not eat on the day of (Eid) al-Adha until he came back, then he would eat from his sacrifice.”

“Whoever sells the skin of his udhiyah, there is no udhiyah for him (i.e., it is not counted as udhiyah).”

“The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) commanded me to take care of the sacrifice and to give its meat, skin and raiment (covering used for protection) in charity, and not to give anything of it to the butcher as a compensation. He said, ‘We will give him something from what we have.’”

Eid-Al-Adha in Quran

فَبَشَّرْنَاهُ بِغُلَامٍ حَلِيمٍ – 37:101

So We gave him good tidings of a forbearing boy.

فَلَمَّا بَلَغَ مَعَهُ السَّعْيَ قَالَ يَا بُنَيَّ إِنِّي أَرَىٰ فِي الْمَنَامِ أَنِّي أَذْبَحُكَ فَانظُرْ مَاذَا تَرَىٰ ۚ قَالَ يَا أَبَتِ افْعَلْ مَا تُؤْمَرُ ۖ سَتَجِدُنِي إِن شَاءَ اللَّهُ مِنَ الصَّابِرِينَ – 37:102

And when he reached with him [the age of] exertion, he said, “O my son, indeed I have seen in a dream that I [must] sacrifice you, so see what you think.” He said, “O my father, do as you are commanded. You will find me, if Allah wills, of the steadfast.”

فَلَمَّا أَسْلَمَا وَتَلَّهُ لِلْجَبِينِ – 37:103

And when they had both submitted and he put him down upon his forehead,

وَنَادَيْنَاهُ أَن يَا إِبْرَاهِيمُ – 37:104

We called to him, “O Abraham,

قَدْ صَدَّقْتَ الرُّؤْيَا ۚ إِنَّا كَذَٰلِكَ نَجْزِي الْمُحْسِنِينَ – 37:105

Hookah contains more amount of carbon monoxide and nicotine then cigarette as a single cigarette contains approx. 10 mg of nicotine and it is generally smoked for 5 to 7 minutes and in this it produces 1.2 times of carbon monoxide in its total session. While hookah is used to be smoked for approx. 45 minutes to 1 hour and which is equal to smoking 12-15 cigarettes which is 120-150mg of nicotine you are consuming and this produces 18 times more carbon monoxide. And a whole session of hookah can produce 37 times more tar then cigarette. Major causes of hookah and cigarette are Lungs Cancer, Oral Cancer, and Tuberculosis.

Generally a hookah Smoker use to inhale 100-200 cigarettes smoke in a single session of hookah.
