4 Men Accused of Brutal Beating
What if someone heard the sound of someone drinking wine on the other side of a wall. So he jumps over the wall to find a man who had a drink in his hand, and he is ready to punish him.
But the man asks;
"Isn't it against Islam to suspect people? And what about eavesdropping & spying on each other?" (Surah Al Hujjurat, verse 12)
"What about entering people's homes without permission?" (Surah Al Ahazzab, verse 56)
"What about entering through proper doors of a house?" (Surah Baqarah, verse 189)
Umar sealed the letter and gave it to a messenger, who was going to deliver the message to a person who began to drink alcohol. The messenger of this letter was directed by Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) to be give the letter only when the recipient was sober.
Umar commanded those who were with him in Madinah to pray for the person in question.
