Enjoining good and forbidding evil has conditions among which that there should be a reasonable possibility that they might accept. Non Muslims need first to believe in Allah and His messenger Muhammad (SAWA) before we talk to them about performing Prayers and other Islamic life rules.

It is a human responsibility on us to help any human being to know and reach to the Truth, and there is no truth bigger than Allah and His message. We as Muslims should try our best to help others through suitable ways to make their lives better. We always need to be wise and polite.

Majority of our great Ulama say that any percentage of alcohol should be be avoided, but there is a verdict from prominent Maraja' of Taqleed that the very tiny percentage like 1% or 2% can be permissible if it has been completely mixed with other contents and became like content.

Precaution is always good although you must follow the verdict of the Marja' of Taqleed whom you follow.

We should not promote using the names or Colors of wines. Wine is type of evil ) رِجسٌ مِن عَمَلِ الشيطان فاجتنبوه (Sura Al-Ma'idah, verse 90)

which should never be promoted by Muslims.

Hadeeth says: When a person dislikes something, he will dislike mentioning it and will dislike it's being mentioned in front of him.

Some people mention the letter W saying: W for wine or whiskey. This is wrong because it promotes an evil. We can say in stead: W for water or W for west or W for wing, etc.
