God tells us in the Quran that intoxicants and gambling are abominations from Satan and orders us to avoid them. (Quran chapter FIVE:verse ninety)

TWELVE% of suicides
TEN% of industrial accidents
As well as deaths, short-term effects of alcohol result in illness and loss of work productivity (e.g. hangovers, drink driving offences). In addition, alcohol contributes to ...more
