Alcoholic drink is a drink whom can make the drinker to be drunk and can lose their consciousness. Islam really forbids it and Allah puts curse on it to be drunk, sold, made, and so on. Rasulullah’s words,
“I had been visited by Gabriel and it said,’O Muhammad, Allah put curse on alcoholic drink, the maker, the picker, the drinker, the bearer, the seller, the buyer, the waiter/waitress’.” (HR. Ibnu Abbas)
“Everything that are intoxicating is forbidden.”
Nowadays, much alcoholic drink are indicated non-alcohol. In fact, not only alcohol that are intoxicating. Producer of alcoholic drink are also often cheat consumer by changing the name of alcoholic drink. Those are forbid too. Because in fiqh (science about Islamic laws), if the legal and the illegal are integrated, then the illegal would be the winner. Rasulullah said,
“A group of my follower would drink khamr (alcoholic drink) and call it (alcoholic drink) with new name except khamr…” (HR Imam Ahmad dan Bukhari)
Actually there are reasons why Islam forbids alcoholic drinks that is,
1. Allah forbids it in The Holy Quran alone
O ye who believe! Intoxicants and gambling, (dedication of) stones, and (divination by) arrows, are an abomination,- of Satan’s handwork: eschew such (abomination), that ye may prosper.
91. Satan’s plan is (but) to excite enmity and hatred between you, with Intoxicants and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allah, and from prayer: will ye not then abstain?.(QS Al-Maaidah:90-91)
2. Alcoholic Drink is Sin Maker
The result of it’s intoxicating, person who drink it will lose their consciousness. If so, person can’t control theirself and then will probably make sin at their will.
Ahmad Taufik entered alcoholic drink to his book of 101 Dosa-dosa besar as one of big sins.
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.” (QS Al-Baqarah:219)
Alcoholic drink is source of crime. Because drank person don’t care to what they do. If they do crime, then they get sin. Rasulullah said,
“Should you far away from alcoholic drink, because it was source of all crime. Whoever didn’t want to far away from its, really they had been insubordinate to Allah and Holy Prophet.” (HR. Thabrani)
The worse is person who drink alcoholic drink then he die, so he die as person who believes in idols. Person who believe in idols is called musyrikun and the work is called syirik. Where as syirik is the biggest sin in Islam.
“Whoever drunk khamr (alcoholic drink) they were not drunk, then Allah would far away from them during 40 day, and whoever drunk khamr and they were drunk, then Allah would not accept their redeemed during 40 day. If they die that time, so they die as musyrikun and Allah may gives them a drink from sweat-blood drink of hell-occupant.” (HR. Hakim)
3. Alcoholic drink make someone far away from success
O ye who believe! Intoxicants and gambling, (dedication of) stones, and (divination by) arrows, are an abomination,- of Satan’s handwork: eschew such (abomination), that ye may prosper. (QS Al-Maaidah:90)
It’s clear according The Quran declares above that drink alcoholic drink is far away from a success. Where as can be in the heaven, full filled-prayer, etc are a success or prosper.
4. Merusak Segalanya
Production of alcoholic drink depends on yeast. Yeast use glucose to get alcoholo and carbondioxide. Warm place are also needed. Yeast will grow up until glucose spent or alcohol kill the yeast itself. That’s why volume of alcohol will be maximal before the process of fermentation stopped. To proof the damage of alcohol, it can be done by entering egg content to alcohol 95% liquid. Then the result will be cooked-egg.
By drinking alcoholic drink, it means they soak their body with alcohol liquid.
