Why Is Alcohol Banned in Islam?

Why Is Alcohol Banned in Islam?

Thou believers, do not approach prayers while you are drunk, until you know what you are saying" (The Quran: Surah 4, Verse 43).

(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Alcohol is generally regarded as an invisible or forgotten drug, often referring to a substance extensively used by people, most of whom do not know or consider it as an addictive drug.

From psychological point of view, alcohol is not the answer, it just makes you forget the question.

Scientifically speaking, alcohol, once entering the blood, will make blood veins expand or become wider; in case of continuous use, it will cause serious damages to the blood vessels or even venous dilation in the long run.

Alcohol may also disturb the respiration process in blood or decelerate the activity of the nervous system, leading to fast heartbeat and high temperature that can be very dangerous in some cases.

Using alcoholic drinks during pregnancy can bring about serious problems to the embryo; an overdose of alcohol in pregnant women may even result in bearing abnormal babies with physical or mental defects.

Alcohol can also seriously damage the liver, causing hepatitis or other illnesses such as cancer (particularly stomach cancer), gastritis and intestinal diseases. Dilation of the skin veins is another consequence of drinking alcohol that will in turn send heat away from the body. Long-term use of alcohol may increase the risk of high blood pressure and heart diseases as well.

Among other outcomes of using this addictive drug are loss of memory; personality disorders; nervous imbalances; skin diseases; diarrhea; malnutrition; serious damages to nose mucus, liver and brain; breast, larynx, lip and gullet cancers; miscarriage; infertility; gastritis; high blood pressure and heart stroke; anemia; hepatitis; disorders in the immune system, as well as family and financial problems, aggressive behavior, and severe anxiety or depression.

The above warnings further highlight the Islamic rule of prohibiting the use of alcohol to maintain man's physical, mental as well as social health.
