(Fatwa: 159=161/L)


If alcohol is made of grapes, raisin and dates then it will be haram, its business will be prohibited and more than size of a coin on cloth will make salah nullified.


But, if it is made of sugarcane, potato, pumpkin, carrot, tomato, radish vegetables then it will not be allowed to drink but its business and usage in medicines may be permitted:

فانھا ان اتخذت من العنب او التمر فلا سبیل الی حلتھا او طھارتھا، وان اتخذت من غیرھما فالامر فیھا سھل الخ (تکملة فتح الملھم 3/608)

Allah knows Best!
