Why JESUS PBUH used to drink wine(alcohol)?
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
As-salamu alaykum , if jesus is a prophet then why he used to drink wine which prohibited in Islam????

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Wa Akaykum as Salam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh
Brother where did you hear that Isa a.s. drank wine? The Quran does not state such a falsehood, nor does the a'ahadiths. You must have read it in the scriptures of the Christians. They also claim that Isa a.s. was crucified. The Quran explicitly and vehemently refutes this notion. Now you decide who you want to trust and believe. We believers do not doubt our scriptures at all.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
