Is there a difference between alcohol and drugs?
The impact of alcohol is probably greater; there is greater damage in the society worldwide. Drugs, because alcohol is a drug. When we say alcohol and drug we are taking alcohol out of the picture, this is the problem, because people distinguish between drug and alcohol, “Alcohol is a drug which is okay but we need to control it”. They fall together in the same bag which Islam prohibited 1,400 years ago without any recourse there is no exception in it. We don’t have what they call, ‘social, socially acceptable, social drinking’, the term exist but from the Islamic perspective it is totally out, that the evil of drug and alcohol in general is so great, that Islam forbade it outright.< Back to Questions
