Asalaam alekom

What does it really mean when one say.

Near to ALLAH and Far away from ALLAH? we believe ALLAH is near to us all.

How could we know one is either far far away or near ALLAH?

I think you're talking about Iman

i.e. practicing your Deen makes you closer to Allah and not practicing takes you far from Allah.

Another example is like someone you love, husband, wife, parent, child, friend etc.

When you are happy with each other, you are close when near or apart. But when you are upset by one of them, you are far away from them even if you're sitting next to them.

It's the connection made by love/Iman that decides the distance. Otherwise Allah loves us more than our mothers and is closer to us than our jugular vein. The distance is created by us by failing to adhere to His rights

Yes the website is authentic. It is run under the supervision of Mufti Muhammad Tosir Miah and with the assistance of the senior Muftis of Darululoom, Bury.

There is a difference of opinion amongst the Ulama regarding the usage of alcohol which is not derived from grapes or dates and majority of the Ulama declare it permissible under some conditions, one of them being it should not be used to the level of intoxication. Mufti Taqi Usmani writes:

"The ruling with regards to the various types of alcohol, the usage of which has become widespread and they are used in many medicines and perfumes, becomes known, in that if the alcohol is extracted from grapes or dates, then there is no question of it being permissible or pure. However, if the alcohol is derived from other than grapes or dates, then there is no problem according to the view of Imam Abu Hanifa, in that it will not be unlawful to use such alcohol (m, and perfumes and medicines made thereof) for medical or other lawful purposes as long as the alcohol does not reach the level of intoxication.... And normally the alcohol used in medicines, perfumes, etc is not extracted from grapes and dates, rather it is derived from seeds, honey, chemicals, petrol, etc..." (Takmila Fath al-Mulhim Sharh Sahih Muslim, 3/608)

Also the question you are referring to makes mention that the alcohol is used as a preservative, it is not derived from grapes or dates and also it evaporates away when cooking so Mufti Sahab has declared it permissible based on that.

Brother i forgot to ask. The main intention of asking about the distance was that.

When you are near ALLAH that means ALLAH is happy with you. And the more distanced you are, relates that ALLAH is not Happy with you?

Plz brother abu mohammed
answer me this. Thank you
