So because of that they aren't 'true' muslims? Its hardly up to other people if a person is a muslim or not. Wine is produced in great quantities
in IRAN and sold all across the world. Lots of muslims enjoy a nice drink every now and then.
If anyone isn't a muslim, its these Nation of Islam ers. They have a new prophet, who communicated a message from god himself, to start the
movement, which is completely contrary to islam, where mohammed is the last prophet who receives the perfect message from god.
Also, is it not alcohol produced from wheat that is not permited, rather than all alcohol?
Also, consider that Omar Khayyam's great work clearly shows that wine was enjoyed throughout the islamic world.
