A Non Muslim came to an Aalim and asked "Why is it not permissible in Islam for a women to shake hands with men?"
The Aalim replied "can you shake hands with the Queen?"
The Non Muslim said " Of course not, there are certain people only who can shake hands with the Queen."
The Aalim then replied " Our women are Queens and Queens do not shake hands with stranger men."
The the non muslim asked another question "Why do your women cover up their bodies?"
The Aalim smiled and got two sweets, he opened the first one and kept the other one closed. He then threw them both on the dusty floor and asked the non muslim. "If I ask you to take one of the sweet from the floor, which one will you take?"
The non muslim replied " The covered one ofcourse."
The Aalim replied " Thats how we treat and see our women."
The non muslim then asked "Show me GOD, if he exist"
The Aalim replied "Look straight into the sun"
Non muslim replied "I cant see, the rays are hurting my eyes"
The Aalim replied " If you cant look at the creation of GOD, then how will you be able to look at the creator of the sun ."
Few days after the non muslim invited the Aalim to his house and gave him some grapes, the Aalim ate grapes and then non muslim offered him a cup of wine, the Aalim refused it, Non Muslim was surprised and asked him how come you muslims are forbidden from drinking wine and yet you eat grapes, when wine is extracted from the same grapes u eat?"
The Aalim asked non muslim " Do you have a daughter?"
He said Yes, The Aalim asked him "Could you marry her?"
The Non Muslim said "No, the Aalim said, Subhan Allah, All praises are for GOD, You married her mother and cant marry her where as she came from her too."
And the logic behind one can eat grapes and canot drink wine is
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verses 90-91:
O you who have believed! ‘Khamr’ (all types of intoxicants), games of chance, idols, and divining arrows are all abominable works of the Shaytaan; therefore, stay (far) away from these so that you may attain success. Indeed, the Shaytaan seeks to sow enmity and hatred among you by means of ‘khamr’ (intoxicants) and gambling, and to prevent you from the Remembrance of Allah and from Salaah. Will you not, then, abstain from these things?
Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 3672 Narrated by Abdullah Ibn Abbas
The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: “Every intoxicant is ‘khamr’ (alcohol, wine, beer, drugs, etc.), and every ‘khamr’ is haraam.”
Although the fruit grape is lawful in its essence, when the extract of this fruit is treated and fermented, it produces a drink which intoxicates…..and every type of drink (or substance) which intoxicates when consumed is absolutely prohibited for the believers who sincerely fear Allah and the Last Day.
And a father canot marry his daughter due to establishing chastity among the relations.
