Q & A- Alcohol

Postby smak786110 » 30 Oct 2006, 11:45

Question : What is your opinion about the beer (Maa al-Sha'eir) which is sold on the market normally with a label that reads "alcohol free".

Answer : The drink that is made from barley and called "Fuqa' in Arabic is definitely forbidden and ritually impure as an obligatory precaution. This drink is not intoxicant normally but it makes one feel tipsy; that is a state of slight drunkenness caused apparently by low percentage of alcohol in the liquid.
Therefore, if a drink is produced alcohol free in the first place and it is not called "Fuqa" (beer), there is no problem, or else, it is forbidden even if alcohol is separated from it. God knows best!

Question : A Muslim enters a café and sits down at a table to drink tea, then a stranger comes at the same table to drink wine. Is it obligatory upon the Muslim to stop drinking tea and leave?

Answer : Yes, it is obligatory to move away from that table.

Question : What is your opinion on Muslims eating in non-Muslim or even Muslim owned and operated restaurants which serve halal food however also serve alcoholic drinks? If the alcohol is not being consumed at our table, does this change the ruling?

Answer : If alcohol is not consumed at your table, there would be no objection in it and you can eat halal food in that restaurant. Yes, if going to such a restaurant is considered bad for the reputation of Muslims, it is not permissible to eat in there.

Question : What is the ruling on a Muslim working in a restaurant in which he must serve alcohol to patrons of the restaurant?

Answer : It is not permissible.
