Hadith – Al-Tirmidhi #2776, Narrated Anas ibn Malik

Allah’s Messenger cursed ten people in connection with wine: the wine-presser, the one who has it pressed, the one who drinks it, the one who conveys it, the one to whom it is conveyed, the one who serves it, the one who sells it, the one who benefits from the price paid for it, the one who buys it, and the one for whom it is bought.

Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah transmitted it.

There is probably no addiction on God’s Green Earth that comes close to Alcoholism, except maybe addiction to tobacco. You can rant about Heroine and rave about Cocaine but those are prohibited almost worldwide where as alcohol and tobacco arent. You can buy them almost anywhere.

Alcohol is a big part of western life and the role it plays as a desensitizer for the masses is profound. The amount of Drunk Drivers deaths, drunk murder rages, deaths due to liver failure and alcohol poisoning statistics might have been enough to convince a less addicted group  of people to abandon this poison. But no… alcohol has embeded itself not only into the financial fabric of the western landscape … but rather as a cultural staple.

I have listed the list of those who are cursed through their involvement with alcohol. This is not the full story… The Prophet of Allah has often spoken of why Alcohol is nothing more than a poison. Inshallah I will touch upon these traditions of the Prophet Peace be Upon him about alcohol.

And Allah Knows Best
