    A great conversation.

    A man came to Iyas Ibn Mu'awiyah, a Muslim judge famous for his
    wisdom, and the following conversation took place between them:


    Man: What is the Islamic ruling regarding wine?

    Judge: It is Haram (Forbidden).

    Man: How about water?

    Judge: It is Halal (Permissible).

    Man: How about dates and grapes?

    Judge: They are Halal.

    Man: Why is it that all these ingredients are Halal, and yet when you
    combine them, they become Haram?

    The judge looked at the man and said: If I hit you with this handful
    of dirt, do you think it would hurt you?

    Man: It would not.

    Judge: How about if I hit you with this handful of straw?

    Man: It would not hurt me.

    Judge: How about a handful of water?

    Man: It surely would not hurt me.

    Judge: How about if I mix them, and let them dry to become a brick,
    and then hit you with it, would it hurt you?

    Man: It would hurt me and might even kill me!

    Judge: The same reasoning applies to what you asked me.
    Renunciation of the world does not constitute wearing coarse clothes and eating stale bread. Real renunciation lies in curbing desires.

      No thats a brilliant example!
      it makes it understandable as to why sharaab is haram.
      Although Allah is the creator of all these ingredients but mixing certain ingrediens together can become intoxicating.
      if HE has said its Haram then it must be haram for our bodies!!!
      FINAL!!
      ..Baat hoti Gullon tak to seh lete hum...Ab to kaanton per bhi haq humara nahi...
      ..Woh Yakeenan sunega Du'a'en meri...Kya tumhaara Khuda Hai?.. Humaara NAHI???...

        Yeah I get it, but the story is really lame because I'm not a 4 year old. That story is good for children, but as an adult I find it as boring and uninspiring as a knock knock joke.

            s_a_khan786, just because my opinion differs from yours (last time I checked, i was allowed to have an opinion) doesn't mean I'm being disrespectful. I just think this is a story more apt for children, that's all.

                  Alcohol is only harmful in excess... Are we sure when they banned alcohol, they didnt mean simply not drinking in excess?
