Sometimes, being involved in crowds or parties, there will be a situation where you may be exposed to drugs and alcohol, maybe for the first time. You may be thinking about trying it, or figuring even how to stop. Nowadays, there are even medical stances where in some medical fields, they try to prove that taking certain drugs or taking in moderate amounts of alcohol may even present some health benefits. Islam emphasizes that the potential harm outweighs any benefit.
THE ISLAMIC PERSPECTIVE
Any substance that intoxicates or harms the body in a large amount is deemed unlawful, even if only a small amount is consumed or used. Islam prohibits all intoxicants, regardless of the quantity or kind. In general, any substance that harms the body is considered unlawful in Islam.
