Praise be to Allaah.
Allaah, may He be exalted, describes the wine of the
Hereafter as being different from the wine of this world. He says
(interpretation of the meaning):
“Round them will be passed a cup of pure wine —
46. White, delicious to the drinkers.
47. Neither will they have Ghoul (any kind of hurt,
abdominal pain, headache, a sin) from that nor will they suffer intoxication
So Allaah describes the wine of the Hereafter as:
delicious to the drinkers,
unlike the wine of this world which is distasteful when drunk
having no “ghoul” (hurt,
abdominal pain, headache, a sin) in it, which is what affects one who
drinks it in this world, of headache, pain in the stomach and loss of
reason. In Soorat al-Waaq’iah it says: “Wherefrom they will get neither
any aching of the head” [56:19], i.e., they will not get a headache from
“nor will they suffer
intoxication therefrom”, unlike the wine of this world which causes them
to lose their minds.
See: Tafseer Soorat al-Saaffaat by Shaykh Ibn
‘Uthaymeen, p. 107-109.
Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him)
The wine of the Hereafter is good, and does not cause any
intoxication or harm. As for the wine of this world, it is harmful and
causes intoxication. In other words, in the wine of the Hereafter there is
no ghawl (intoxication) and the one who drinks it will not become
intoxicated; it does not cause him to lose his mind and it does not cause
physical harm. As for the wine of this world, it is harmful to mind and body
alike. None of the harmful effects in the wine of this world will be found
in the wine of the Hereafter. And Allaah is the source of strength. End
