Hadeeth- [A People Will Drink Alcohol And Give It Another Name]- With Short Commentary By Shaikh Zaid [rahimahullaah]

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.

The Messenger of Allaah [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] said, “Indeed, a people from my Ummah will drink alcohol, [and] give it other than its [real] name”. Shaikh Zaid Bin Haadi [rahimahullaah] said, “This hadeeth contains a Prophetic miracle in relation to the information given by the Prophet  [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] about an affair of the unseen and that this will definitely occur. What the Prophet [sallal laahu alayhi wasallam] stated that alcohol will be given a name other than its real name will definitely occur. Indeed – in our era – alcohol has been given another name to deceive the people and urge them towards it, such as the name Mashroob Roohee [i.e. (The sprightly drink or the drink that makes you lively), instead of giving its real name Khamr (i.e. alcohol) as it is said, Al-Khamru Takh’murul Aql – Alcohol veils (or obscures) the intellect]. And they have given it other names as well but it does not isolate it from the fact that it is khamr [alcohol] and it is forbidden”.
