Buying Khamr

Q 8: Is it permissible for a Muslim to buy Khamr (intoxicant), since some people have Muslim and non-Muslim friends who drink Khamr (intoxicant). He may go with them to cafes, so is it permissible for him to pay for all the drinks, including Khamr (intoxicant), though he himself never drinks it?


A: It is Haram (prohibited) for a Muslim to serve his friends - Muslim or non-Muslim - Khamr, whether in a cafe or at home or elsewhere. It is impermissible for him to pay for it, even if he did not drink it, for Allah (Exalted be He) cursed Khamr, its drinker, its server, its seller, its buyer and the one who consumes its price. He should keep away from bad companions, to protect himself from indulging in sins.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
