Eating in Restaurants which have in them Alcohol – Shaykh Al-Albani

The Questioner: On the ruling on eating in restaurants which have in them alcohol, some brothers raise the issue  that there is other than the it (alcohol) present?

Shaikh Al Albani rahimahullah: that there is other than alcohol?

Questioner: Yes

Shaikh: We do not doubt in the impermissibility because it is entering into places in which Allah’s punishment and anger are permissible. So it is not permissible for a Muslim except for one passing through.

Questioner: He buys to-go?

Shaikh: As long as there is other than it (alcohol) in it, there is no hindrance for the one on the go.
