Ruling of Intoxicants
Q 300: Are alcoholic beverages najis?
A: By obligatory caution, intoxicating drinks are najis.
Q 301: What is the rule applicable to grape juice that boils over a fire and two-thirds of which has not yet evaporated, although it is not intoxicating?
A: Drinking it is Haram, but it is not najis.
Q 302: It is said that when a quantity of unripe grapes are boiled to extract their juice, the substance derived after boiling is Haram if they included a few or even a single ripe grape. Is this opinion correct?
A: If the quantity of the juice derived from a few ripe grapes is so insignificant that it disappears in the juice of the raw grapes so that it cannot be called the juice of ripe grapes, it is Halal. But, if only the ripe grapes are boiled on the fire, then it is Haram to drink the juice.
