f:1111 -    Serving wine in aeroplane
Country : Hyderabad,
Name : Ali
Question:     I work in Qatar Airways as Cabin Crew.  My responsibilities are take care of the passengers and offer them food, drink and wine.  My question is if the passengers ask for it, can I offer them wine? Is it correct according to the Shariah?
............................................................................
Answer:     As per Islamic law, consuming wine is a Major Sin (Gunaah Kabeera) and offering people wine to drink is helping them in sin.  Allah Most High has forbidden us from helping each other in sins.

Help ye one another in righteousness and piety, but help ye not one another in sin and rancour: fear Allah: for Allah is strict in punishment.  Surah Maidah (5:2)

Thus, if by remaining in the same department, you can absolve yourself of this responsibility, then do it.  If you cannot, then leave this job and go for another one.  Allah Most High will provide sustenance (Rizq) and will help you.

And Allah The Most Compassionate and The Most Benevolent knows best.
