  1. Assalaam o alaikum Haroon,

    Here is one Hadith:
    Narrated Anas (Radi-Allahu ‘anhu):

    I was the butler of the people in the house of Abu Talha, and in those days
    drinks were prepared from dates. Allah’s Apostle (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa
    Sallam) ordered somebody to announce that alcoholic drinks had been
    prohibited. Abu Talha ordered me to go out and spill the wine. I went out
    and spilled it, and it flowed in the streets of Medina. Some people said,
    “Some people were killed and wine was still in their stomachs.” On that the
    Divine revelation came:– “On those who believe And do good deeds There is
    no blame For what they ate (in the past).” (5.93)

    Bukhari Vol. 3 : No. 644

    • Asalaam o alaikum
      Not only is drinking of alcohol haraam but even going near it, trading it, selling it, buying it, serving it, growing grapes with the intention of making wine and benefiting from the funds of sale of it is haraam, check hadith on this, which explains the final ayah on all that is an intoxicating to the senses is haraam including but not only alcohol.
      Allah knows best, I know only from what I have read in the Quran and Hadith.
