Assalam Alaikum.

My grandmother is very sick and was recommended to drink a special wine made from grape to cure her. They also said it would give her a lot of strength. However, we are very confused if it is Haram or not because we are consuming it with the intention of getting strength, not getting intoxicated.

I will not accept any answers that do not have a Quran or Hadith reference!

Thanks.

This is a bad site for trying to get fatwas as most of us are not Alim. If you have any questions, try http://www.assimalhakeem.net/contact and the shaykh will answer you within the day or a few days inshaAllah

It is 100% halal. For an example, From Hadith- if you are in the desert starving for food, and you find a dog, you can consume it for the sole purpose to help yourself. Like your grandmother, she is sick. If it heals her up with the wine it's more than halal it's medication. Do not worry she can take it, my friend needed medical marijuana to get rid of his cancer, he's been cured from it too. Allah help those who are righteous and I will keep your grandma in my prayer.

But if there is no other option my friend? We are talking about the wine here. How am I supposed to know the sickness and what else can cure it? Only god knows what's the real cure friend.

Thanks, but I need an exact reference and exact relevance for my question.

I had given you an example from the Hadith. If there is no other option, and you need it to save your life, you must take it.

Precise wording is alcohol not wine. Alcohol has -OH group.

I would recommend asking a chemist if this really is wine what you are talking about because chemistry may say otherwise.
