Alcoholic: Do you think I am doing wrong by eating a date (fruit)?

Scholar: No.

Alcoholic: And if I ate with it some grass?

Scholar: There is nothing wrong with that.

Alcoholic: And if I were to wash them down with water?

Scholar: Drink and enjoy.

Alcoholic: Since all of that is permissible, then why do you forbid us from alcohol, which consists of the above mentioned ingredients?

Scholar: If I poured water on top of you, would that hurt you?

Alcoholic: No, it would not.

Scholar: And if I were to sprinkle some dirt in that, would that hurt you?

Alcoholic: That would not harm me.

Scholar: But if I were to mix water and dirt together and through a process make a large brick from those two elements, and then were I to throw that large brick at you, would you be hurt?

Alcoholic: That would kill me!

Scholar: The same goes for alcohol.
