00:00:00--> 00:00:41

The next issue I'd like to ask you about Dr. Zakir is concerning alcohol. What does Islam say about alcohol? Does it prohibit it entirely? Allah says no Quran in surah majda chapter number five was the 90 yeah you live in Amman or you believe in number camrol my most certainly toxic it's and gambling, well unsolvable Islam, dedication of stones, divination of arrows, rich to minimally shaytan did that Satan's handiwork first enable him to flee home. abstain from this handle that may prosper. For Allah says, This is Rich to me. I'm Alicia tan, it's a Satan handiwork obtained from the demeo prosper.

00:00:42--> 00:00:57

And Mr. Mondavi in his list of the 70 major sins. He puts having alcohol in toxic ends kamar having mine number 19 in the list, and having been toxic in silver and private in Christianity.

00:00:58--> 00:01:08

If you read the Bible, it's mentioned in the Book of Proverbs, chapter number 20 was number one, it says that vine is a mocker.

00:01:10--> 00:01:28

It is strong, raging drink. And anyone who deceived is not wise. It's mentioned the book of Ephesians chapter number five, verse number 18. Be not drunk with wine. But unfortunately, we find that none of the Christians and the Jews, they follow the advice given in the Bible, unfortunately. And

00:01:29--> 00:01:50

what is the logic? The reason that Islam is prohibited alcohol. Normally in the human being, there is an inhibitory center, this inhibitory center, it prevents a human being from doing things which are illogical and not correct. For example, if a person wants to go to the call of nature,

00:01:51--> 00:02:16

the Liberty center will say that don't do it in a public place, go to the toilet. Anybody said diversity and liberty center. When a person speaks to the parents, tells that don't be disrespectful to parents. Don't use foul language. So this is the work of any data center. When a person is intoxicated. When a person has intoxication has wine have alcohol, they inhibit the centers in between.

00:02:17--> 00:02:31

and he doesn't know what he's speaking therefore, you find many of them they start cursing, they start verbal abuse, you find them saying obscene things, you may find them that they urinate in their own clothes. So this is because anybody centers liberty.

00:02:32--> 00:02:37

And if we analyze that alcohol is responsible for many crimes that take place,

00:02:38--> 00:02:54

according to the US Department of Justice 1986 every day, in the year 1986 2713 cases of rape took place. That means every two second one rape is taking place in America in 1986.

00:02:56--> 00:03:02

And the report says that majority of the people who committed rape, they went toxic intoxicated.

00:03:03--> 00:03:12

Furthermore, when American statistics it says that 8% of the Americans, they indulge in incest, having intercourse with the close relatives.

00:03:14--> 00:03:32

And it says that every 12% who come across in America, they're doing incest and majority of them the inner state of intoxication when they do insist. So we realize that alcoholism, besides being bad for the hell, it's a cause for many diseases. And health wise anyway, it is a cause for AIDS,

00:03:33--> 00:03:35

which has recently cropped up.

00:03:36--> 00:03:45

And there are many people who say that I am associated drinker and have only one beggar I'm intoxicated.

00:03:46--> 00:04:12

When you interview, the alcoholics, all of them when we ask them, they will say the initiative those social drinkers, no alcoholic starts to drink because he wants to become an alcoholic. All of them are social drinkers. And later on, they become alcoholics. And if you meet any social drinker who has been drinking for a couple of years, you ask him that how many times he been intoxicated, and there will be several times that have been toxic and with all the power that he has.

00:04:13--> 00:04:33

And once a person intoxicated, and if he commits a sin like rape, like insert, it's an unforgivable sin and irreversible damage done. And we realize that that is the reason our beloved partners are seldom mentioned in the manga version number three.

00:04:35--> 00:04:40

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

The Beloved Prophet said that anything which intoxicating in large quantity is even prohibited in small quantity, no excuse for the proton. You can't say I'll take a pack you know, what are intoxicated large quantity is in Providence Park quantity, and the Beloved Prophet. He has cursed 10 categories of people who indulge in alcohol. It's mentioned in episode one number three, Book of intoxicants. Chapter number 30. Added number 28. Zero, the beloved Prophet said 10 categories of people who indulge in alcohol accost The one who destroys it.

00:05:43--> 00:06:08

who serves it, the one who utilizes the earnings from the sale of alcohol, the one who buys it, the one who buys it for somebody else. So all these 10 categories of people, they are cursed by Allah Spano, tala, and there are various different diseases that a person can acquire when he has

00:06:09--> 00:06:09

alcohol.

00:06:11--> 00:06:18

But nowadays, my colleagues, the medical doctors, they say that alcoholism is a disease that tried to pacify that. Don't be rude to the alcoholic. No, don't blame him. alcoholism is a disease. If alcoholism is a disease, it is the only disease that is sold in bottles.
