Alcoholism and Youth Delinquents


ALCOHOLISM AND YOUTH DELINQUENTS: ISLAM AND ALCOHOLISM

Comment:

That is why in ISLAM, Islam prohibits the consumption of alcoholic drinks, even handling the alcoholic bottles are highly discourage (let alone drinking it).Source from the Quran: "They ask you about alcoholic drinks and gambling. Say, "There is great harm in both, though there is some benefit also for the people. But the harm of the sin thereof is far greater than their benefit. " (Quran, 2:219 and 5:90-91)

Today, the scientific authorities have proven that alcoholic drinks can threaten the health, mind, physical body, and even close families relationships. On a daily basis, many road accidents, divorce cases, youth delinquents (youth offenders), etc. are the direct results of alcoholism. That does not even take into account the high costs of purchasing the alcoholic drinks in the first place.

Note: ITS not just only in NZ that faces this problem (alcoholism), in Australia, UK, and USA, the numbers are on record high over the past years. The question is, when are the government seriously considering banning them, or limiting the age group to says, 21 years and above.


Note: Islam totally probits the consumption of alcohol (100 percent), however, both Christianity and Judaism allows alcohol consumption, BUT in moderation. That's the problem, when can one really says enough is enough ?! (Also can everyone really control their thrist and desire for alcoholic drinks once they gets into it, especially when alcoholic drinks are very addictive, so much so that, top politicians, singers, actors/actress, and even top motivators and doctors, some go into Rehabilitation Centres due to alcoholism problem).

(Dated: 08-09-2009) Islam & alcoholism In these days, countries that allow alcohol are suffering from it and the number of alcoholics is increasing rapidly. In the U.S.A., for example, the number of alcoholics has increased from four million in the 1960s to ten million in the 1970s. In Britain, the number of alcoholics has increased from half a million to one million. In some European countries, the percentage of alcoholics is 8% of the population! Alcoholic drinks are the only poison that is licensed in those countries. However, Islam took a clear attitude towards alcoholic drinks more than 1400 years ago. Islam prohibits such drinks. Any drink that causes drunkenness is prohibited in Islam regardless of the matter it is made from and regardless of the quantity. According to Islam, if too much of a drink causes drunkenness, then any small quantity of this drink is prohibited, because all alcoholics start with small quantities, then they become the slaves of alcohol. Islam does not only prohibit drinking alcoholic drinks, but also prohibits making them. Islam also prohibits carrying, selling, or buying such drinks. According to Islam, if something is prohibited, all means to it are also prohibited.

More Child Alcoholics Recorded in NZ
AAP March 28, 2011, 7:52 am


More and more children, some as young as nine, are being treated for drug and alcohol addiction in New Zealand and those referred to health specialists are just the tip of the iceberg, experts say. The number of people under 16 being treated in greater Auckland's Community Alcohol and Drug Services (CADS) increased by nearly 20 per cent to 382 last year. Half of that number were treated for alcohol and the rest for cannabis and other drugs. There were 71 treated at Waitemata District Health Board emergency departments for intoxication, The New Zealand Herald reported. The Auckland and Counties Manukau boards have not responded to requests for figures in their areas. The problem was far worse than the figures suggested, CADS child and adolescent psychiatrist Grant Christie said. "Especially with the younger ones - they are here because they got caught by parents, teachers or police and were referred to us. All their mates who didn't get caught, they were still drinking harmfully." Christie said about half the 382 children treated by CADS had problems with alcohol, 40 per cent with cannabis and 5 to 10 per cent with other drugs, including methamphetamine, or solvent abuse. He said it was common for children to be referred because of cannabis use, but to be found to have a greater problem with alcohol. Alcohol Healthwatch health promotion adviser Chris Rogan said the figures should be no surprise to anybody and the situation would not change unless something was done about people's attitudes to alcohol. The figures represented people who were proactive in getting help and were "the very, very tiny tip of a very big iceberg".
