One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

is it permissable to have food that has wine, for example sauces (which has a very small content of wine as its ingredients) which can be put in food while cooking, it is said that it is like spirit and evaporates quickly so when the food is ready, the wine isnt there, but i believe that though evoporated, it still becomes part of food and if it eveporates why add it to your food in the first place. Please enlighten me as to what i think is correct or not.

Answer:

 

Is White wine vinegar prohibited?

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 no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verses 90-91:O you who have believed! Khamr (all types of intoxicants), games of chance, idols, and divining arrows are all abominable works of Shaitaan; therefore, stay (far) away from these so that you may attain success. Indeed, Shaitaan seeks to sow enmity and hatred among you by means of khamr (intoxicants) and gambling, and to prevent you from the Remembrance of Allah and from Salaah. Will you not, then, abstain from these things?

 

Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 3672 Narrated by Abdullah Ibn Abbas

The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: Every intoxicant is khamr (alcohol, wine, etc.), and every intoxicant is haraam.

 

Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 3679 Narrated by Aisha

I heard the Messenger of Allah (saws) say: Every intoxicant is haraam; if a quantity of anything causes intoxication, a handful of it is (also) haraam.

 

Sahih Muslim Hadith 4962 Narrated by Jabir ibn Abdullah

Allah's Messenger (saws) said: Every intoxicant is haraam! Verily Allah, the Exalted and Majestic, made a covenant to those who drank intoxicants to make them drink Tinat al-Khabal. The companions asked: Allah's Messenger, what is Tinat al-Khabal? He (saws) said: It is the sweat of the denizens of Hell, or the discharge of the denizens of Hell.

 

Allah and His Messenger (saws) have declared every type of intoxicant haraam; and if a large quantity of something intoxicates, even a handful of it will be considered haraam.

 

The product being labeled vegetarian or the alcohol evaporating when cooked does not make a thing that is declared haraam by Allah and His Messenger (saws) as halaal! All types of intoxicants, whether in large or minute quantity will be considered haraam for the believers to consume.

 

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.

 

Your Brother in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
