ARAK - IBU SEGALA KEJAHATAN

Khutbah Jumaat menjelaskan mengenai bahayanya arak kepada manusia. Arak adalah ibu kepada segala kejahatan. Arak boleh membuat seseorang individu mabuk dan melakukan perkara-perkara yang dilarang oleh Allah SWT. Seorang yang mabuk tidak boleh mengawal dirinya dan beliau akan menjadi bahan ketawa orang ramai serta boleh menjatuhkan maruahnya di khalayak ramai. Mereka akan membuat perkara yang tidak senonoh termasuk membuka pakaian atau menunjukkan kemaluan.

Pemabuk juga akan melakukan dosa besar seperti berzina atau merogol termasuk anak mereka sendiri. Bagi wanita mabuk, mereka tidak akan sedar diri dan akan menjadi mangsa kepada kejadian rogol dan pencabulan.

Dalam satu peristiwa pada masa lalu, seorang perempuan jahat telah mengurung seorang lelaki di rumahnya dan akan disiksa jika tidak membuat tiga pilihan. Lelaki itu diminta membuat pilihan untuk melakukan tiga perkara iaitu berzina dengan perempuan itu, meminum arak dan membunuh seorang kanak-kanak di dalam rumah itu, sebelum beliau dibenarkan pergi. Lelaki itu memilih untuk minum arak dan akhirnya beliau melakukan dua pilihan lain iaitu berzina dan membunuh.

Jauhilah arak.

Refraining from alcohol, that is a good advice but to blame every sins on alcohol, that is overdone. It is like gun, blame the killing on guns? It is the human who consume the alcohol or uses the gun irresponsibily that is the main problem.

Anyway I am not a drinker, never love to drink, stay away whenever possible and never understand why the orang putih likes to drink to calm their nerves.

I will only drink on one occasion, when i have terrible wet cough, full of phlegm, then i will get my sole bottle of brandy, take 2 tablespoon for the next 3 nights before sleep. It never fails to cure.

Alcohol, it does has some good uses.

To all my friends,

Just for your information. Info from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The effects of alcohol on the human body can take several forms.

Alcohol, specifically ethanol, is a potent central nervous system depressant, with a range of side effects. The amount and circumstances of consumption play a large part in determining the extent of intoxication; e.g., consuming alcohol after a heavy meal is less likely to produce visible signs of intoxication than consumption on an empty stomach. Hydration also plays a role, especially in determining the extent of hangovers. The concentration of alcohol in blood is usually measured in terms of the blood alcohol content.

Alcohol has a biphasic effect on the body, which is to say that its effects change over time. [1] Initially, alcohol generally produces feelings of relaxation and cheerfulness, but further consumption can lead to blurred vision and coordination problems. Cell membranes are highly permeable to alcohol, so once alcohol is in the bloodstream it can diffuse into nearly every biological tissue of the body. After excessive drinking, unconsciousness can occur and extreme levels of consumption can lead to alcohol poisoning and death (a concentration in the blood stream of 0.55% will kill half of those affected). Death can also occur through asphyxiation by vomit. An appropriate first aid response to an unconscious, drunken person is to place them in the recovery position.

Intoxication frequently leads to a lowering of one's inhibitions, and intoxicated people will sometimes do things they would not do while sober, often overlooking social, moral, and legal considerations. Conversely, some studies have suggested that intoxicated people have much greater control over their behavior than is generally recognized. [1]


The image shows the brains of two six-week-old infants. The left brain is confirmed no alcohol exposure, while the right brain is of an infant with fetal alcohol syndrome.This article primarily covers the short-term effects of alcohol on the adult human body. For the potential long-term cumulative effects of alcohol on the adult human body, please refer to alcohol consumption and health, alcohol and cardiovascular disease, alcohol and cancer, alcohol and weight and alcoholic liver disease. The potential impact of alcohol consumption by pregnant women on their fetuses is discussed in the article fetal alcohol syndrome.

Metabolism of alcohol and action on the liver.

The liver breaks down alcohols into acetaldehyde by the enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase, and then into acetic acid by the enzyme acetaldehyde dehydrogenase. Next, the acetate is converted into fats or carbon dioxide and water. Chronic drinkers, however, so tax this metabolic pathway that things go awry: fatty acids build up as plaques in the capillaries around liver cells and those cells begin to die, which leads to the liver disease cirrhosis. The liver is part of the body's filtration system which, if damaged, allows certain toxins to build up, leading to symptoms of jaundice.

Some people's DNA code calls for a different acetaldehyde dehydrogenase, resulting in a more potent alcohol dehydrogenase. This leads to a buildup of acetaldehyde after alcohol consumption, causing the alcohol flush reaction with hangover-like symptoms such as flushing, nausea, and dizziness. These people are unable to drink much alcohol before feeling sick, and are therefore less susceptible to alcoholism.[2][3] This adverse reaction can be artificially reproduced by drugs such as disulfiram, which are used to treat chronic alcoholism by inducing an acute sensitivity to alcohol.

Dehydration

Alcohol has been known to mitigate the production of the ADH (antidiuretic hormone), which is a hormone that acts on the kidney, favoring water reabsorption in the kidneys during filtration. This occurs because alcohol confuses osmoreceptors in the hypothalamus, which relay osmotic pressure information to the Posterior pituitary, the site of ADH release. As alcohol surpresses release of this hormone, one's kidneys are no longer able to reabsorb as much water as they should be absorbing, leading to creation of excessive volumes of urine and subsequently overall dehydration.

Hangovers

A common after-effect of ethanol intoxication is the unpleasant sensation known as hangover, which is partly due to the dehydrating effect of ethanol. Hangover symptoms include dry mouth, headache, nausea, and sensitivity to movement, light and noise. These symptoms are partly due to the toxic acetaldehyde produced from alcohol by alcohol dehydrogenase, and partly due to general dehydration. The dehydration portion of the hangover effect can be mitigated by drinking plenty of water between and after alcoholic drinks. Other components of the hangover are thought to come from the various other chemicals in an alcoholic drink, such as the tannins in red wine, and the results of various metabolic processes of alcohol in the body, but few scientific studies have attempted to verify this.
