Can Muslims drink Coca Cola or Pepsi?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Principally, if the alcohol is extracted from grapes or dates it is not
permissible. Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, ‘Khamr (wine) is
from these two trees, dates and grapes.’ (Mishkãt p. 317).

Furthermore, Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, ‘Alcohol itself
is prohibited and intoxication in every other beverage.’ (Hidaaya vol. 4 p.

In view of the abovementioned Hadith, since the alcohol in coke is from
ethanol which is fermented from sugar cane mollasses and does not
intoxicate, it is permissible.
