The Prohibition Of Making Nabidh In A Gourd Or In a Jar Smeared With Pitch

[136] From Malik from Al-‘Ala Ibn Abdurahman from his father and Ishaq Ibn Abdullah that they both heard Abu Hurairah (Radi Allahu Anhu) say that the Messenger of Allah (Sallalahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) forbade preparing nabidh in a gourd or in a jar smeared with pitch.



Al-Muwatta (Yahya’s narration (2/843, 844 hadith no.1637, book 42, chapter 2, hadith no.6), at-Tamhid (20/237) al-Istidhkar (no.1565)

Transmitted by Ahmad (2/514 hadith no.10677) from the hadith of Malik 

[1] From the narration of Yahya Ibn Yahya. It has been dropped / missing from the original

1) Nabidh is when dates etc. are put into a container with water and it becomes so that a syrup (nectar) or juice (extract, molasses) is made. The Sharia has prohibited from doing this since after a few days there is a possibility of this drink becoming an intoxicant. If there isn’t a chance of it having an intoxicating effect then it is allowed to make Nabidh in other containers apart from the ones mentioned in the hadith. 

2) Also see hadith no.248

3) If the Nabidh is intoxicating then it is haram according to the previous hadith no.20 “Every drink which intoxicates is haram.”

4) For further details and fiqh benefits see the previous hadith no.20

5) Apart from making Nabidh, it is allowed to use the above mentioned utensils / containers.
