Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

I'd say c) is closest to the truth. The consensus of Muslims I know who don't drink (I'd say purely anecdotally of people I know, it's maybe 50 / 50 between those that do and don't) is that they believe it is improper to be intoxicated, as you are not properly able to appreciate Allah's work and give praise to him if you aren't in your right mind - it is disrespectful to him. So, of course, it's not just alcohol, but anything that leads to intoxication. Pain meds seem to be OK though.
But if it is about the intoxication, this would not explain why some Muslims think even non alcoholic beer is forbidden.
