Muslims, Drinking and Halal

Quran 5:90


O you who have believed, indeed, intoxicants, gambling, [sacrificing on] stone alters [to other than Allah ], and divining arrows are but defilement from the work of Satan, so avoid it that you may be successful.
Comment: Halal regards Muslim rules for eating and drinking.  For the Christian, "for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit." (Romans 14:17) Yet many Muslims do drink in violation of Halal. Image source top

  1. Somehow the original assassins--"hashishis" of the Crusades--and the practice of chewing khat and betel nut come to mind, as well as the poppy fields of Afghanistan. Wine is wrong, but opium, hashish, khat, and betel are OK? Not quite getting that one.
