Nabidh Made From Dates and Raisins

[526]     From Malik from someone trustworthy from Bukayr ibn Abdullah ibn al-Ashajj from Abd ar-Rahman ibn al-Hubab al-Ansari from Abu Qatada al-Ansari that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ, forbade making nabidh from dates and raisins together, and nearly ripe dates and fresh dates together.


Al-Muwatta (Yahya’s narration (2/844 hadith no.1639, book 42, chapter 3, hadeeth no.8) at-Tamhid (24/205) and al-Istidhkar (no.1767)

Transmitted al-Nasa’i in al-Kubra (Tuhfatul Ashraf no,12119), from the hadith of Malik, from the Hadith of Malik as above and it has supports in Bukhari (5602), Muslim (1986) and it is thus Sahih.

  1. Since everything intoxicant is haram and sometimes Nabidh made from dates and raisins can become intoxicants, therefore from the perspective of Sadh al-Dhari’ i.e. a means to prevent a harm, we have been prohibited from drinking Nabidh.
  2. Islam is a Din that wishes good for humanity.
  3. Who is the trustworthy narrator referred to here? This is unclear, however in Sunan al-Kubra of al-Nasa’i (from Tuhfatul Ashraf 9:261 no.12119) and Tamhid (24:206), Amr bin al-Harith who is trustworthy, transmits from Bukayr bin Abdullah ibn al-Ashajj, there are also authentic supporting narrations which support this hadith, therefore this hadith is authentic wa Lillahil Hamd. 
  4. See also hadith no.136, 248
