Alcoholic: “Do you think I am doing wrong by
eating a date?”

Scholar: “No.”
Alcoholic: “And if I ate with it some Grass?”
Scholar: “There is nothing wrong with that.”
Alcoholic: “And if I was to wash them down with
water?”
Scholar: “Drink and enjoy.”
Alcoholic: “Since all of that is permissible, then

Scholar: “If I poured water on topof you, would

Alcoholic: “No it would not.”
Scholar: “And if I was to sprinkle some dirt in
that, would you be hurt?”
Alcoholic: “That would not harm me.”
Scholar: “But if I were to mix water and dirt

brick from those two elements, and then were I
to throw that large brick at you, would you be
hurt?”
Alcoholic: “That would kill me!”
Scholar: “The same goes for alcohol.
