The Difference Between the Wine and Alcohol of this World and That of the Next

We all know that alcohol is forbidden for us in this world and that it intoxicates and causes confusions, which is why it is filthy, why drinking it is from the acts of Shaytaan, and why as the Messenger of Allaah Salallaahu alayhi wa sallam informed us it is the mother of evil deeds. Noble Shaykh, my question is this: Why is alcohol forbidden in this life and permitted in the next?

The wine of the Hereafter is pure; it neither intoxicates nor harms. It is the wine of this world only that intoxicates, harms, and confuses. All of the direct and indirect harms associated with the wine of this world are non-existent in the wine of the next life.

Shaykh `Abdul-`Azeez Bin Baz
