Is Alcohol from Allah or Satan?

In Islam Muslims are taught certain things are allowed (halal) while others are forbidden (haram). Muhammad had stoled this from Judaism in which Hebrews eat kosher foods. On islamqa.info the question was asked from a Muslim: “Why does islam prohibit drinking alcohol even in small amounts? And what does Koran say about it?”

Here’s the response they gave concerning alcohol: “No doubt alcohol is intoxicating, and contains this substance that makes people lose their minds. It says in the hadeeth, “Every intoxicant is khamr, and every khamr is haraam (forbidden).” If this is the case, then alcohol is considered to be forbidden and to come under the heading of “khamr”(wine, etc.) which people drink for relaxation or enjoyment. Allaah has forbidden it and stated that it is a sin, as He says (interpretation of the meaning):”

Let’s see what the Qur’an says where alcohol came from, in the following ayat we read that strong drink otherwise known as alcohol is the handiwork of Shaytaan.

O ye who believe! Strong drink and games of chance and idols and divining arrows are only an infamy of Satan’s handiwork. Leave it aside in order that ye may succeed. — S 5:90 (Pickthall)

Now if we look at another ayat in the Qur’an which says that alcohol was created by Allah as a sign for the people, good provision and for those who have wisdom.

And from the fruits of date-palms and grapes, you derive strong drink (this was before the order of the prohibition of the alcoholic drinks) and a goodly provision. Verily, therein is indeed a sign for people who have wisdom.  — S 16:67 (Mohsin Khan)

If we then take these 2 verses together then we must reach the conclusion that Allah and Satan are the same. If alcohol is Satan’s handiwork and Allah made alcohol as a sign for the Muslims this means Allah is Satan. Going into the Tafsir for further explanation we read from Ibn Kathir.

Tafsir of Ibn-Kathir: Prohibiting Khamr (Intoxicants) and Maysir (Gambling) Allah forbids His believing servants from consuming Khamr and Maysir which is gambling. Ibn Abi Hatim recorded that `Ali bin Abi Talib, the Leader of the Faithful, said that chess is a type of gambling. Ibn Abi Hatim recorded that `Ata’, Mujahid and Tawus, or , two of them, said that every type of gambling, including children’s playing with (a certain type of) nuts, is Maysir. Ibn `Umar said that Al-Maysir means gambling, and this is the same statement that Ad-Dahhak reported from Ibn `Abbas, who added, “They used to gamble during the time of Jahiliyyah, until Islam came. Allah then forbade them from this evil behavior.”

According to Ibn Kathir alcohol is Shaytan’s evil handiwork, and that in alcohol is great sin which is prohibited for Muslims. The Definition of prohibited is not permitted, forbidden by authority so how can it have “some benefit for men?” It’s abundantly clear that Islam is a religion from the father of lies Satan, many of these Muslims are confused because they don’t even know their own religion. May there eyes be open to the falsehood of Muhammad.
