Alcohol was classified as one of the most carcinogenic substances by the World Health Organisation in 1988 and is particularly linked to cancers of the mouth, throat and liver.

Surah Al Maidah ch 5 v 90 states that-stay away from alcohol,pork,prostration in front of others so that by staying away from this u can become successful.these are all Satan's conspiracy to deviate U from right path.

The words of a brainwashed individual, I'd say. As you know, alcohol is a human invention and it has your brain react in a certain way.

Greetings W.S.,

I disagree.  Satan has always worked through people to lead them astray.  Alcohol definitely leads one away from God and His good path.

Salaam.

Hello!
I'm not saying that alcohol and religion is a good combination. If a person has a drink it's on him, and he does it because he has chosen to do so. The influencing factors behind his decision to have a drink may be several, but I don't think that some Satan character having "whispered" in his ear is one of them.

Greetings W.S.,

That voice is within each of us.
Good and evil live within all of us, and the propensity to do good or evil depends on which voice we listen to. 

Have you ever heard the Cheokee parable of the Two Wolves?  I shared it here;
http://www.islamicity.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=24493&KW=wolf&PID=171697#171697
It is good to read.  i hope you will take the time. Smile

We have a choice which voice we listen to, or which wolf we feed... good or evil.
Choosing alcohol is making a choice that leads away from God... away from His Spirit within us, and to be controlled by the spirit of alcohol instead.  Alcohol alters the mind's abilities, therefore it is easily a tool, or weapon, of satan to be used against us.
Is it any wonder that alcohol ruins health?  Spoils God's good creation.

Salaam, Smile
CH

I've come across it before, actually. I try to feed only the good one. How well you manage to do that depends a lot on the conditions around you.

Even though I'll agree that it's best not to drink any alcohol, I guess the leading away part depends on how much and how often you drink. Alcohol has the potential to take you over, and some people are at a greater risk of this happening than others, obviously. I think it's sad and undignified when people get so drunk they can no longer behave themselves. But if people want to enjoy a couple of beers or glasses of wine now and then, I personally don't have any problem with that. You don't get wasted from a couple of cold ones.

Well, I'm a little more secular in my thinking. I think that the only "weapon" that would work here in Sweden would be informing people of the damages that alcohol can cause your health, your life and people around you. This is already being done, though.
