Māʼidah al-Khamr – A Jurisprudential Discussion by Haider Hobbollah

This is a very popular discussion, and the famous opinion is that it is ḥarām to eat or drink on a mā’idah or a sufrah – which is essentially anything upon which you place food for consumption – while there is alcohol being consumed on it. Some jurists have said you cannot sit on such a mā’idah even if you are not eating from it.

What follows is a transcript from lessons 107 & 108 – March 9th and 10th 2020 – of last year’s advanced jurisprudence lessons on Food and Drinks given by Shaykh Haider Hobbollah in the city of Qom.

The discussion below is regarding the famous ruling on the prohibiting of eating or drinking on a table where there is alcohol. This was the second time the Shaykh covered the topic of Food & Drinks, the first time spanning over two years, while this time it was briefly covered in a year. Recently, these lessons have also been published in a 3-volume work titled Fiqh al-Aṭ‘imah wa al-Ashriba.

While the transcript below is brief and covered in two days, the extensive discussion can be found in volume 3 of the recently published book, between pages 340-360.

As these notes are for advanced readers, I will not be translating the Arabic traditions or technical jargon.
