The Details of the Question
Is it prohibited to sell alcohol while fasting?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Selling alcohol does not invalidate the fast. But whether someone fasts or not, selling alcohol is prohibited in Islam.

The prohibition was not limited to drinking alcohol only; Buying and selling, that is, the trade of alcohol was also prohibited. Our Prophet (PBUH) stated that alcoholic drinks were damned in ten aspects and said the following in a hadith:  «Alcoholic drinks were damned in ten aspects: the drink itself, the producer, he who wants to produce it, seller, customer, carrier, he who makes others carry it, he who makes a living by the money earned from alcohol, he who drinks it and he who makes others drink it. » Ibn Majah, Ashriba : 6.
