AQUELLE FLAVOURED WATER

AQUELLE FLAVOURED WATER

 

THEIR MISLEADING RESPONSE

 

In response to our  announcement that

 

AQUELLE FLAVOURED WATER IS HARAAM

 

The Aquelle Management wrote:

 

"In response to  a leaflet sent out by The Majlis we confirm

that according to current South African legislation

(Foodstuffs, Cosmetics and Disinfectants Act, 1972 –Act 54 of 1972)

and Regulation  146 Relating to the Labelling and Advertising of Foodstuffs) all aQuelle flavoured drinks are classified

ALCOHOL FREE."

This response is highly misleading for Muslims. Firstly, our enquiry does not concern the classification of a product as 'alcohol free' IN TERMS OF CURRENT SOUTH AFRICAN LEGISLATION.  The  issue of interest to Muslims for the purpose of consumption of a product is  'ALCOHOL FREE IN TERMS OF SHARIAH LEGISLATION'

 

While "current South African legislation" classifies Aquelle  flavored drinks as 'alcohol free', in terms of the Shariah AQUELLE FLAVOURED DRINKS ARE HARAAM BECAUSE  SUCH DRINKS CONTAIN ALCOHOL. THIS IS OUR CONTENTION, AND WE CHALLENGE THE Aquelle Management to disprove us.

 

According to current South African legislation if a product  contains a certain minute  amount of alcohol, it  can be   legally advertised 'alcohol free', and such legal advertisement may be utilized to legally deceive the Muslim community and to trick Muslims into believing that the product is totally free of alcohol.

 

We now call on the Aquelle Management to clarify unequivocally in the  literal and true meaning which every Tom, Dick and Harry and every moron can understand, the following issues:

 

(1)  Are the concentrates/essences you use  to produce your flavoured drinks 100% free of alcohol?

(2)  If not totally free (and most certainly they are not totally free), state the percentage per litre of alcohol content in the concentrates you use.

(3)  For the purposes of the Muslim community, forget about the deception of 'Alcohol Free in terms of current South African legislation". State with clarity and without any tongue-twisting in   common terms whether your flavoured drinks are free of alcohol.

(4)  If any of you flavoured drinks are  in entirety free of alcohol,  enumerate these flavours.

(5)   Enumerate the flavours which do contain alcohol in terms of  common understanding, not in terms of "current South African legislation".

(6)  Whilst you may have flavours which are totally free of alcohol in the end product, explain to us if the concentrates used in such end products are alcoholic, and the percentage of alcohol in the concentrates used to produce  such end products in which there is literally no  alcohol residue.

FOR THE INFORMATION OF THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ:

" إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ قَالَ: مَنْ عَادَى لِي وَلِيًّا، فَقَدْ آذَنْتُهُ بِالْحَرْبِ، وَمَا تَقَرَّبَ إِلَيَّ عَبْدِي بِشَيْءٍ أَحَبَّ إِلَيَّ مِمَّا افْتَرَضْتُ عَلَيْهِ، وَمَا يَزَالُ عَبْدِي يَتَقَرَّبُ إِلَيَّ بِالنَّوَافِلِ حَتَّى أُحِبَّهُ، فَإِذَا أَحْبَبْتُهُ، كُنْتُ سَمْعَهُ الَّذِي يَسْمَعُ بِهِ، وَبَصَرَهُ الَّذِي يُبْصِرُ بِهِ، وَيَدَهُ الَّتِي يَبْطِشُ بِهَا، وَرِجْلَهُ الَّتِي يَمْشِي بِهَا، وَإِنْ سَأَلَنِي لَأُعْطِيَنَّهُ، وَلَئِنْ اسْتَعَاذَنِي لَأُعِيذَنَّهُ، وَمَا تَرَدَّدْتُ عَنْ شَيْءٍ أَنَا فَاعِلُهُ تَرَدُّدِي عَنْ نَفْسِ عَبْدِي الْمُؤْمِنِ، يَكْرَهُ الْمَوْتَ وَأَنَا أَكْرَهُ مَسَاءَتَهُ"

رواه البخاري

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah Radiallahu Anhu, who said that the Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said:

Allah (mighty and sublime be He) said: Whosoever shows enmity to someone devoted to Me, I shall be at war with him. My servant draws not near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have enjoined upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him, and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it. I do not hesitate about anything as much as I hesitate about [seizing] the soul of My faithful servant: he hates death and I hate hurting him.
