A Beautiful & Creative Dialouge.

Alcoholic: Do you think I am doing wrong by eating a date?
Scholar: No.

Alcoholic: And if i ate with it some grass?
Scholar: There is nothing wrong with that.

Alcoholic: And if I were to wash them down with water?
Scholar: Drink and enjoy.

Alcoholic: Since all of that is permissible, then why do you forbid us from alcohol, which consists of the above mentioned ingredients?
Scholar: Well,If I poured water on top of you, would you be hurt?
Alcoholic: No it would not.

Scholar: And if I were to sprinkle dirt in that, would you be hurt?
Alcoholic: That would not harm me.

Scholar: But if I were to mix water and dirt together and through a process make a large brick from those two elements, and then were I to throw that large brick at you, would you be hurt?
Alcoholic: That would kill me!

Scholar: The same goes with alcohol.
