I am so confused. I go to school in Denmark, and all my classmates are drinking. It is really hard to stand out, because i want to have friends and fun.. But they all think, I am weird, because I don't drink at parties etc. What do you think, I should do? I need to find the strength in my beliefs, so in which surah does it say that drinking alcohol is a sin?
My dear sister in Islam
I pray for you that Allah gives you strength and steadfastness to remain firm on Islam and its teachings.
With good friends, it is easier to practice your faith and with bad friends it becomes harder. I suggest that you seek a company of friends who are not into drinking or other evil habits.
Drinking alcohol is clearly forbidden in Islam and it is mentioned in Surah Al Ma'idah Chapter 5 Verse 90
And Allah knows best.
