Gift wrapping items that contain alcohol

Q: I work in a warehouse that has gift hampers. Is it permissible to gift wrap items that has alcohol bottles in them?


A: Alcohol is haraam and forbidden in Islam. The Hadith has cursed people who have involvement with alcohol. Hence you should refrain from wrapping those gifts which contain alcohol in it.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
