TV and pictures of animate objects

Q: If somebody tries to make me watch TV or show me a picture on their phone then what would be a wise response I could memorize?

“Many readers may not be aware that some ingredients of fizzy drinks such as Pepsi Cola, Coca-Cola and others have been dissolved in alcohol.” Dr Muhammad ‘Ali al-Baarr says in his book al-Khamr bayna at-Tibb wa’l-Fiqh so is it out of taqwa these drinks are avoided? or are they permissible? Please explain how they become taahir if alcohol is used in case I need to explain to others.


A: Get up and go away.

Taqwa requires that these drinks be avoided.

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