Selling alcoholic drinks

Question:

Is it against God’s law to sell alcoholic drinks even if we do not use them ourselves?

Reply:

When we sell any item that is prohibited by God, such as alcoholic drinks, we would be mediating the use of a prohibited item. According to the following Quranic words, we would incur a share in in the blame:

Whoever intercedes for a good deed receives a share thereof, and whoever intercedes for a bad cause shares its burden. mediates an evil work, incurs a share thereof. God over all things is a Keeper. 4:85
