One common thing about the critics of Islam is that they stoop so low as to making silly criticisms. They are however seen to be hypocrites when the game bounces against them. The issue of drinking wine in paradise (As written in the Quran) is something that has come under criticism from Islam critics, mostly Christians to say.
Yes and yes, Allah (SWT) promised Muslims wine in paradise, let’s see what type of wine ;
Surah Al-Waqia, Verse 18:
With cups, and jugs, and a glass from the flowing wine,
Surah Al-Waqia, Verse 19:
Wherefrom they will get neither any aching of the head, nor any intoxication.
It is obvious, vivid, glaring and axiomatic that no jot of intoxication would come upon anyone who drinks from this wine. Let us read what Jesus (pbuh) was recorded to have said by the Gospelers. Jesus said;
“I tell you, I will not drink from this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”(Matthew 26:29)
Jesus here was telling his disciples He won’t doing of the FRUIT OF THE VINE till he drinks it with them in paradise. What’s the fruit of the vine? We read ;
“Judges 9:13 And the vine said unto them, Should I leave my WINE , which cheereth God and man, and go to be promoted over the trees?”
The fruit of the vine is wine hence Jesus wants to drink wine in paradise.
Not only did Jesus profess, worship and also enjoined the worship of one God according to (Matthew 4:10, Mark 12:29, John 17:3), he also bowed in worship (Matthew 26:39) and he also wants to drink wine in paradise same as the belief and expectation of a Muslim.
A Muslim is one who submits to the will of God and we read Jesus saying,
” “I did not come to do my own will but the will of him that sent me” (John 6:38) “
Indeed, Jesus was a Muslim.
