to be) declared, Umar said: O Allah, give us a satisfactory explanation
about wine. So the following verse of Surat al-Baqarah revealed;
"They ask thee concerning wine and gambling. Say: In them is
great sin...." Umar was then called and it was recited to him.
He said: O Allah, give us a satisfactory explanation about wine.
Then the following verse of Surat an-Nisa' was revealed: "O
ye who believe! approach not prayers with a mind befogged...."
Thereafter the herald of the Apostle of Allah would call when the
(congregational) prayer was performed: Beware, one who is drunk
should not come to prayer. Umar was again called and it was recited

wine. This verse was revealed: "Will ye not then abstain?"
Umar said: We abstained. The Noble Qur'an - al-Baqarah 2:219 They
ask you (O Muhammad ) concerning alcoholic drink and gambling. Say:
"In them is a great sin, and (some) benefit for men, but the
sin of them is greater than their benefit." And they ask you
what they ought to spend. Say: "That which is beyond your needs."
Thus Allāh makes clear to you His Laws in order that you may give

a lash, and then when we finished, someone said to him, 'May Allah
disgrace you!' On that the Prophet said, 'Do not say so, for you
are helping Satan to overpower him.' " Satan's Use of Intoxicants
The Noble Qur'an - Al-Ma'idah 5:91 Shaytan (Satan) wants only to
excite enmity and hatred between you with intoxicants (alcoholic
drinks) and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allah
and from As-Salāt (the prayer). So, will you not then abstain?"
Accepted: Al-Tirmidhi #3643, narrated
Abdullah ibn Umar ; Abdullah ibn Amr Allah's Messenger said, "If
anyone drinks wine Allah will not accept prayer from him for forty
days, but if he repents Allah will forgive him. If he repeats the
offence Allah will not accept prayer from him for forty days, but
if he repents Allah will forgive him. If he again repeats the offence
Allah will not accept prayer from him for forty days, but if he
repents Allah will forgive him. If he repeats it a fourth time Allah
will not accept prayer from him for forty days, and if he repents
Allah will not forgive him, but will give him to drink of the river
of the fluid flowing from the inhabitants of Hell." [Tirmidhi
transmitted it, and Nasa'i, Ibn Majah and Darimi transmitted it
on the authority of Abdullah ibn Amr.]
Abu Dawood, narrated Tariq ibn Suwayd or Suwayd ibn Tariq Wa'il
said: "Tariq ibn Suwayd or Suwayd ibn Tariq asked the Prophet
about wine, but he forbade it. He again asked him, but he forbade
him. He said to him: Prophet of Allah, it is a medicine. The Prophet
said: No it is a disease."
Umm Salamah, the wife
of the Prophet reports that he once said: "Allah has not placed
a cure for your diseases in things that He has forbidden for you."
(Reported by Baihaqi; Ibn Hibban considers this hadith to be sound.
Bukhari has also related it on the authority of Ibn Mas'ud.)
Abu Dawood; Sahih Bukhari
Abu ad-Darda reported that the Prophet said: "Allah has sent
down both the malady and its remedy.. For every disease He has created
a cure. So seek medical treatment, but never with something the
use of which Allah has prohibited."
