عن عائشة رضي الله عنها: «أَنَّ رسول الله-صلى الله عليه وسلم- سُئِل عن الْبِتْعِ؟ فقال: كل شَرَابٍ أَسْكَر فهو حَرَامٌ».

‘A’ishah, may Allah be pleased with her, reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him, was asked about mead, and he said: "Every drink that intoxicates is unlawful."

Explanation

The Messenger of Allah, may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him, was asked about mead, an alcoholic drink made of honey, and his answer was complete and comprehensive, to the effect that the difference of names does not matter as long as the meaning and essence is the same. Every drink that causes intoxication is forbidden wine, regardless of its kind or name. This Hadith constitutes one of the concise and profound statements made by the Prophet, may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him, as he demonstrated the rulings laid down by his Lord. The period of his Prophethood contained such knowledge that would render all humanity blissful in the worldly life and in the hereafter.
