The Koran didnt prohibit alcohol

hi

The Qur2an never prohibits alcohol. But the Muslim Imams done and do that. To prove that they modified the meaning some qur2anic texts and the muslims nation who only says " Amin" to thier imams believed in that !

1- However The verse 4:43, in which Muslims are told that they must not pray while intoxicated. The real meaning is that any person shouldnt be drunk when he is in contact with the others. Because the real meaning of praying is " contact between people and between them and God" . Then the same verse gives the reason and which is to have control on your contact and talking.

2- The verse – 2:219 – which says that in wine and gambling "is great sin, and some profit, for men; but the sin is greater than the profit. And i said:

God Allah did not mentioned in that verse that alcohol is prohibited but it was an advice that " alkhamr" which exactly means to drink until you became anaesthetized can be dangerous. Also the same verse did not mention that its " Haram " which means prohibits, but it says that its better to stay away from to be drunk as anaesthetized .

3- The verse in 5:90-91, intoxicants and gambling are called "an abomination" and "Satan's handiwork": "Satan's plan is (but) to excite enmity and hatred between you, with intoxicants and gambling, and hinder you from the remembrance of Allah, and from prayer: will ye not then abstain?"

Also as I mentioned before its means to drink until you become anaesthetized would hinder you from contacting each others and hinder you from remembering your God . Also this verse didnt mention that its Haram .

The important evidence which prove that drinking alkohol is not prohibited is that Allah did not mention any punishment in the Qur2an concerning Alkoho. But muslims imams rejecting that and they could convince muslims nations in thier ideology!

For the importance of this subject I am going to write a special important article about Alcohol in Arabic and send it to Mr, Daniel to be published even in English. Also my article would contain the real translation of that verse and not the imams one.

God Bless You
