In The Name Of The Judge







A Great






A man came to Iyas Ibn Mu'awiyah, a Muslim judge famous for his wisdom, and the following conversation took place between them:



What is the Islamic rulling regarding wine


Judge: It is Haram (Forbidden).


Man: How about water?


Judge: It is Halal (Permissible).


Man: How about dates and grapes?


Judge: They are Halal.


Man: Why is it that all these ingredients are Halal, and yet when you combine them, they become Haram?


The judge looked at the man and said: If I hit you with this handful of dirt, do you think it would hurt you?


Man: It would not.


Judge: How about if I hit you with this handful of straw?


Man: It would not hurt me.


Judge: How about a handful of water?








Man: It surely would not hurt me.


Judge: How about if I mix them, and let them dry to become a brick, and then hit you with it, would it hurt you?


Man: It would hurt me and might even kill me!


Judge: The same reasoning applies to what you asked me!!
