Prohibiting Intoxicants: The Prophet’s ﷺ Message

The prohibition of alcohol and other intoxicants within Islam is perhaps the easiest of prohibitions to understand. The dangers of alcohol are well-known, causing everything from poor decisions to traffic accidents to illness, disability, and pre-mature death. Sh. Mohammad Elshinawy explains how Prophet Muhammad ﷺ encouraged temperance through the conviction of faith, and the message of Islam continues to offer a path for individuals struggling with addiction to reclaim their lives.
