Abstract

In this article, the view of Kathryn Kueny about “wine” in the Encyclopedia of the Qur’ān, volume 5, pages 481 to 483 is propounded. Then, it has been probed using the jurisprudential, exegetic, and lexical books of Shī‘a and Sunni and some articles of Iran’s positive law. The author, at first, mentions the quiddity of wine and the location of winemaking, and then investigates the lexicology of the words khamr (ordinary wine), sakar (intoxication), and raḥīq (pure wine). Later on, the quiddity and difference between the worldly wine and heavenly wine is put forward. Finally, the jurisprudential principles for drinking wine and its metaphorical sense are mentioned.
