During the holiday seasons and certain occasions, we might receive gifts from our friends and colleagues who are not Muslim. How can we deal with receiving alcohol as a gift? How can we respectfully decline it?
In such cases, address the person as if they are coming from an ignorant perspective and not from a stubborn perspective. Genuinely appreciate the thoughtfulness of the person. Then explain your beliefs and reasons why you cannot accept it. Keep the conversation light and humorous and they will understand, inshaAllah.
