I would like to know that during Ashura some sect in India distribute sharbat in roads and other places. Is it permissible for us to drink this sharbat?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 78/44/SN=2/1438)

This sharbat (drink) should not be accepted as this is served with false and forged belief of the Rawafiz. The belief is that Hadhrat Hussain (may Allah be pleased with him) was martyred while he was thirsty and that this sharbat shall reach to him and quench his thirst. This belief is fictitious belief as neither this sharbat reaches to him nor he needs it, Allah supplies him the best comfort in Jannah and the sharbat of this world is nothing compared to those blessings. (Fatwa Mahmoodia, vol. 3, p. 278, pub. Dhabel)

Allah knows Best!
