Criminal Penalty For Alcohol Consumption In Islamic Law
Is there any specific (or confirmed) criminal penalty for consumption of Alcohol in Islam, that can be adopted in Islamic Shari’a?
Volume 8, Book 81, Number 769:
Narrated ‘Hz. Ali bin Abi Talib (ra):
I would not feel sorry for one who dies because of receiving a legal punishment, except the drunk, for if he should die (when being punished), I would give blood money to his family because no fixed punishment has been ordered by Allah’s Apostle for the drunk.
This tradition from Hz. Ali (ra) seems to inform that there is no specific criminal penalty for consuming Alcohol in the İslamic law.
