DRINKSInvestigative Report The World's Best-kept Secret Coca-Cola Unveiled 
IntroductionAfter a detailed investigation it has been proven beyond any doubt 
that Cokeand other cooldrinks are HARAAM for Muslim consumption.All of the 
facts gathered during my investigation are found herewithincluding overwhelming 
proof from a previous investigation conducted by theMujlisul Ulama of South 
Africa. This subsequently led to the Mujlisul Ulama declaring COKE HARAAM in 
theearly 80's. The UTUSAN KONSUMER declared it HARAAM in 1984 on a 
thoroughinvestigation of its own. COKE was given a court order by the Indian 
government to reveal its secretrecipe but chose to rather pull out of the 
country than to disclose itscovert formula. Since its inception COKE has 
ignored two court orders to reveal its truecontents. The original recipe for 
COKE is at this point in time locked up in a bankvault in the USA . * At any 
one time only the Head Chemist at Coca Cola knows the truecontents of COKE. The 
formula has been passed down from Head Chemist to hispredecessor over the years 
as the Head Chemists have retired. From all the proof gathered and put together 
it is astounding how thisproduct could ever have been declared HALAAL. I had 
personally been abstaining for a year as I had previously had doubtand it was 
therefore better for me to abstain for the sake of TAQWA, but itis now a 
confirmed certitude that COKE is HARAAM and it is now my Islamicduty to 
abstain.The Contents of COKE The Secret recipe of COKE as per a formulary book 
that belonged to JohnPemberton who invented Coca-Cola 107 years ago. The recipe 
included citratecaffeine, extract of vanilla, seven flavoring oils, fluid 
extract of coca(cocaine), citric acid, lime juice, sugar, water, caramel and 
alcohol.Evidently the cocaine was removed in 1903. Coca-Cola continues to 
dominatethe scene after 107 years, and the profits from the sale of it have <> as follows:Merchandise #1

HARAAM Recipe for VANILLA EXTRACT: 2 Whole vanilla beans1 ½ c Vodka or Brandy½ 
c Water1 c Granulated sugarThere are various recipes for Vanilla Extract from 
different resources butthis is the most common recipe. Apart from synthetic 
Vanilla Extract allrecipes for Vanilla Extract contain alcohol, either Brandy 
or Vodka in mostcases. VANILLA EXTRACT has been overlooked and not been 
investigated before today,not even by the Mujlisul Ulama or the Utusan Konsumer 
in their respectiveinvestigations. With regards to ETHANOL below is the 
following Webster's dictionarydefinition of ETHANOL:Main Entry: eth a 
nolProunciation: 'e-th&-'nOl, British also 'E- Function: nounDate: 1900: a 
colorless volatile flammable liquid C2H5OH that is the INTOXICATINGAGENT in 
liquors and is also used as a solvent – called also ethyl alcohol,grain alcohol 
(Based on Merriam-Webster's Collegiate(R) Dictionary, Tenth Edition) Almost all 
cooldrinks manufactured today contain ethanol since ethanol isused as a 
dissolving media for most flavourants. COKE and SPARLETTA amongst others have 
admitted to having used ethanol intheir flavouring essence. The reasoning that 
Ethanol is not KHAMR as professed by many scholars ispure deception by shaitaan 
and the kuffaar. The first declaration made by Nabi (sallallahu alayhi 
wasallam) concerningthis matter was that not only is wine prohibited but that 
the definition ofKHAMR extends to any substance which intoxicates, in whatever 
form or underwhatever name it may appear. Thus, for example, beer and similar 
drinks areHARAAM.Our beloved Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) was once asked 
about certaindrinks made from honey, corn, or barley by the process of 
fermenting themuntil they became alcoholic. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi 
wasallam),blessed as he was with the best of speech, replied succinctly: 
'Everyintoxicant is KHAMR and every KHAMR is HARAAM.' And Hadhrat Umar 
(radhiyallahu anhu) declared from the pulpit of Rasulullah(sallallahu alayhi 
wasallam): 'KHAMR is that which befogs the mind.' From the above it is evident 
that ETHANOL is beyond any doubt HARAAM despitewhat our deceived brothers 
choose to believe. GLYCERINE which has already been declared Haraam by the 
Jamiatul Ulama isincluded in COKE in two forms. It is firstly used in the 
Vanilla Extract asa means to 'fix' the aroma of the flavouring. It is also used 
in the mainrecipe as a preservative although there are claims that it is not 
used anymore. The Flavouring part of Merchandise #7X is made up of 95% ALCOHOL 
togetherwith Lemon, orange, lime, cassia and nutmeg oils mixed together. Islam 
takes an uncompromising stand in prohibiting intoxicants, regardlessof whether 
the amount is little or much. If an individual permitted to takebut a single 
step along this road, other steps follow; he starts walking andthen running, 
and does not stop at any stage. This is why our beloved Nabi(sallallahu alayhi 
wasallam) said: 'Of that which intoxicates in a largeamount, a small amount is 
HARAAM.' And again: 'If a bucketful intoxicates, asip of it is HARAAM.' In 
connection with alcohol, Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) cursedten 
categories of people saying: 'Truly, Allah has cursed KHAMR and hascursed the 
one who produces it, the one for whom it is produced, the one whodrinks it, the 
one who serves it, the one who carries it, the one for whomit is carried, the 
one who sells it, the one who earns from the sale of it,the one who buys it, 
and the one for whom it is bought.' When the above verse of Surah al-Maaidah 
was revealed, Rasulullah(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) announced: 'Truly, Allah 
has prohibited KHAMR.Therefore, whoever hears this verse and possesses some of 
this substanceshould neither drink it nor sell it.' The narrator of the Hadith 
says: 'The people brought forth whatever theypossessed of it and poured it out 
in the streets of Madinah.' Islam's stand in prohibiting alcohol and blocking 
all avenues which lead todrinking is very clear and unequivocal. The Arab's 
during the period of jaahiliyyah were very fond of wine anddrinking parties. To 
eradicate this pervasive evil from society, AllahTa'ala adopted a wise course 
of education and training, prohibiting it inmeasured stages. First, He made it 
clear to them that the harm of drinkingwine is greater than its benefit; next, 
He told them not to come to Salaatwhile intoxicated; and finally, He revealed 
the verse in Surah al-Maaidahwhich prohibited it totally and decisively: 'O you 
who believe! Truly, intoxicants and gambling and divination by arrowsare an 
abomination of shaitaans' doing; avoid it in order that you may besuccessful.. 
Assuredly shaitaan desires to sow enmity and hatred among youwith intoxicants 
and gambling, and to hinder you from remembrance of Allahand from Salaat. Will 
you not then desist?' The response of the Muslims to these verses was 
remarkable indeed. At thetime some people were drinking, with partly-filled 
cups in their hands. Assoon as they heard someone announcing: 'Wine has indeed 
been prohibited.',they poured the remaining drinks upon the ground and broke 
the big clay potsin which other drinks were being fermented. May Allah give us 
the strength to give up something we love and enjoy,something that has become a 
part of our daily life. May Allah give us thestrength to give it up just as the 
Muslims of those times gave up wine anddrinking parties solely for the pleasure 
of Allah. I wish to stress that mere academic knowledge of the HALAAL and 
HARAAM, andof the limits of these is not sufficient. Although the major sins 
andprinciple obligations are known to every Muslim, nonetheless, we find agreat 
many of them indulging in these sins and neglecting those obligations,and 
rushing toward the Fire with their eyes wide open. If the Muslim is well-versed 
in the knowledge of his religion and itsShariah, and at the same time possesses 
a fully alert conscience whichsafeguards the limits so that they cannot be 
overstepped, he is indeed richin all goodness. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi 
wasallam) spoke the truthwhen he said: 'When Allah intends good for a person, 
He makes his own soul awatcher over him.' Just as Islam has prohibited whatever 
leads toward the HARAAM, it has alsoprohibited resorting to technical 
legalities in order to do what is HARAAMby devious means and excuses inspired 
by shaitaan. It has reprimanded theJews for resorting to such practices. 
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhiwasallam) said: 'Do not do what the Jews did in 
order to (technically)leaglise Allah's prohibitions by flimsy excuses.'This is 
a reference to the fact that Allah had prohibited the Jews to hunton the 
Sabbath (Saturday). To get around this prohibition they would digditches on 
Friday so that the fish would fall into them on Saturday, to becaught on 
Sunday. Those who resort to rationalisations to justify theiractions consider 
such practices to be permissible, but the jurists of Islamconsider them HARAAM, 
since Allah's purpose was to prevent them from huntingon the Sabbath, whether 
by direct or indirect means.Calling a HARAAM thing by a name other than its own 
or changing its formwhile retaining its essence is a devious tactic, since 
obviously a change ofname or of form is of no consequence as long as thing and 
essence remainunchanged. Thus, when some people invent new terms in order to 
deal in usuryor to consume alcohol, the sin of dealing in usury and drinking 
remains. Aswe read in the collections of Ahadith 'A group of people will make 
peoples'intoxication HALAAL by giving it other names..' 'A time will come when 
people will devour usury, calling it 'trade'.' And among the strange phenomena 
of our time is that people term obscenedance 'art', liquor 'preservatives', and 
usury 'interest'. In all its legislation and moral injunctions, Islam lays 
great stress onnobility of feelings, loftiness of aims, and purity of 
intentions.Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: 'Actions will be 
judged byintentions, and everyone will be recompensed according to what he 
intended.'I conclude with the following supplication, which has come to us from 
theearly Muslims: ' O Allah, make us independent of HARAAM with HALAAL and 
ofdisobedience to you with obedience to You.'All praise is for Allah Ta'ala, 
Who guided us to this; had He not given usguidance, we could not have been 
guided. All information mentioned in this investigative report was checked
