alcohol , He said just do not drink and go. Well, I want some
Daleel on the subject
Praise be to Allaah.
Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): " And if Shaytaan causes
you to forget, then after the remembrance sit not in the company of those
people who are the zaalimoon (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.)."
Jaabir (may Allaah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "Whoever believes in
Allaah and the last day, should not sit at a table where wine is being
served." (Reported by al-Tirmidhi, no. 2801; classed as saheeh in Saheeh al-Jaami',
Abu Sa'eed al-Khudri said: "The Messenger of Allaah
blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: 'Allaah will ask His slave on the Day
of Resurrection until He says: What prevented you, when you saw
something evil, from denouncing it?'" According to another report: "One of
you will be asked on the Day of Resurrection until he is asked: What
prevented you from denouncing evil when you saw it?" (Reported by Imaam
Ahmad and Ibn Maajah, 4017; see also Saheeh al-Jaami', 1818).
I think that now, my brother, you will know the ruling concerning going to
parties where there is wine and other evils. When the believer sits in such
gatherings it is as if his heart dies from merely seeing what is going on and
saying anything about it, even if he himself does not partake of it.
