Alcohol Halal?

Q: My friend drinks alcohol but I don’t drink alcohol. The next day, he ate half a shawarma, and I ate the remaining other half of the shawarma. Does it mean I drank alcohol? Does Allah forgive me if it is a sin?

A: By no means does this mean you drank alcohol. The shawarma was not cooked in alcohol, so you are fine. 🙂 That said, the Quran clarifies that “intoxicants and games of chance” are “abominations of Satan’s handiwork” [Quran 5:90-91]. We interpret these verses as forbidding the use of intoxicants such as beer, wine and spirits. Since you do not drink, and you also did not intentionally consume alcohol, there is nothing to stress about. Always remember that Allah (swt) wishes ease for you, so don’t stress
