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.
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.
