ذكر ابن بكير قال: جاء رجل إلى مالك بن أنس…

فقال: يا أبا عبد الله، إنى رأيت رجلا سكرانا يتقافز يريد أن يأخذ القمر، فقلت: امرأتي طالق إن كان يدخل جوف ابن آدم أشر من الخمر.

فقال: ارجع حتى أنظر في مسألتك.

فأتاه من الغد فقال له: ارجع حتى أنظر في مسألتك…
فأتاه من الغد فقال له: امرأتك طالق، إنى تصفحت كتاب الله وسنة نبيه فلم أر شيئا أشر من الربا، لأن الله أذن فيه بالحرب.

 

Ibn Bukayr said: ‘A man came to [Imaam] Maalik ibn Anas….’

And he said: ‘O, Abu Abdullaah; I saw a drunkard man jumping trying to grasp the moon!! 

So I said to myself [making an oath]: ‘Let my wife be divorced if there is anything entering the stomach of a human which is more worse than alcohol!!!’

So he [Imaam Maalik] said: ‘Let me look into this affair, so come back some other time.’

Thus the man came to him the next day.

But he [Imaam Maalik] said: ‘come back some other time; Let me look into this affair.’

Thus the man came to him the next day.

So he [Imaam Maalik] said to him: ‘Your wife is divorced!!! Surely I went through the Book of Allaah & the Sunnah of His prophet: I did not see anything more worse than ribaa (usury), because Allaah announced war upon those who deal in it (ribaa)!!!”

Showing that the consummation of Ribaa is worse than alcohol.

May Allaah rectify our affairs.
