The Destroyer


The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) was once asked about mead. He replied, “Every drink that intoxicates is forbidden.” [Sahih Bukhari]

Al-Hasan al-Basri said, “How could any man ruin his mind, which is the most beloved thing in God’s creation, with wine?” [The Seventy-Seven Branches of Faith by Imam al-Bayhaqi]

A wise man once asked his son, “Why do you drink?” and he replied, “It helps to break up the food in my stomach.” “By God,” his father replied, “it will break up your religion even more surely.” [The Seventy-Seven Branches of Faith]

"According to official statistics, of the 5059 people who died in traffic accidents in Britain in 1988, more than a thousand lost their lives as a result of alcohol consumption. Similarly, over a third of British hospital beds are occupied with alcohol-related cases. But it is not merely people’s health that suffers from alcohol use. More than half of Britain’s violent crimes are committed ‘under the influence’. The U.K. economy loses more than 2 billion pounds annually thanks to this drug. Suicide, sterility, depression, brain damage, child neglect, wife beating – these are just some of the other effects of this habit forming narcotic." [Translator’s note, The Seventy-Seven Branches of Faith]

A man was once asked why he did not drink, and he replied, “By God, I am not happy with my mind when it is sound, so why should I corrupt it even further?” [The Seventy-Seven Branches of Faith]
