Some restaurants brush meat with alcohol
before grilling it on fire. As a combustible substance, alcohol burns quickly. Is it permissible to eat this meat on the basis that alcohol evaporates?
It is not permissible to eat this meat prepared with alcohol, as it is considered Najis (ritually impure) according to the majority of scholars. Further, deeming this meat lawful to eat will lead to the unlawful consumption of Khamr (intoxicant) and to the use of its tableware without cleaning them. (Part No. 22; Page No. 296) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
