Intoxicants and Gambling Prohibited
[5:90] O you who believe, intoxicants, and gambling, and the altars of idols, and the games of chance are abominations of the devil; you shall avoid them, that you may succeed.
[5:91] The devil wants to provoke animosity and hatred among you through intoxicants and gambling, and to distract you from remembering GOD, and from observing the Contact Prayers (Salat). Will you then refrain?
[5:92] You shall obey GOD, and you shall obey the messenger, and beware. If you turn away, then know that the sole duty of our messenger is to deliver the message efficiently.
[5:93] Those who believe and lead a righteous life bear no guilt by eating any food, so long as they observe the commandments, believe and lead a righteous life, then maintain their piety and faith, and continue to observe piety and righteousness. GOD loves the righteous.
God says to AVOID intoxicants and gambling.
For our entire existence here Satan is going to try and make us forget God. These are tools of the devil. If we use them we will be impacted by what He says here.
What does gambling have to do with contact prayer?
When you are losing you can think of nothing else other than how to get your money back. No windows or clocks in a casino so that you don’t know what time of day it is. That is how you forget your contact prayer, obsession and distraction. Peoples’ focus is so strong when gambling; remember to seek refuge in God from Satan the rejected.
