The most important thing a person must do in life is be very cautious about the circle of friends he/she has, and who they associate with. 

We need to be extremely picky and sensitive towards this. 

You need to advice your brother about the direction he is going, and how all this will affect his spirit and religious faith. Try to show him the bad effects of these people he is associating with, and how damaging something like an illegitimate relationship will be, and also alcohol. 

If your advice does not have any effect, try to ask someone he respects to intervene, inform your parents to calmly advice him, and just try your best to dissuade him. Seek advice from people around you as well, who know him.

Dua is also very important. Hopefully, he will come to his conscience and realise the wrong direction he is heading. Just never give up.

With prayers for your success.

Muslim is not allowed to deliver unlawful (Haraam) items at all. If you are sure the job will definitely make you carry or deliver such Haraam items even in any small percentage, you will not be allowed then to do such job.

You should keep your platform and business activities clean and pure from any Haraam business.

It is not allowed to consume any food or medicine which contains alcohol. This is the verdict of majority of our scholars. According to Ayatullah Sistani, if the percentage of alcohol in the medicine or food is very small that it does not cause intoxication then it might be permissible to consume it.

It is a sinful act to give away alcohol to any human being even if you received it as unwanted gift from non Muslim. We must refrain from giving alcohol to any human being because it is an evil and we should not part with it in any way but only to destroy it.

This is a false narration fabricated by the enemies of Imam Ali (AS). The narrator is Ataa' ibn al-Saa'ib عطاء بن السائب who is mentioned in main Sunni books of Rijaal as a rejected person. Yahya Ibn Mo'een said about him: His narrations are not valid. Ahmad Ibn Hanbal and al-Dhahabi and Abu Haram and al-Nasaa'ee  and ibn'Olayyah and al-Humaidy spoke against him and his narrations.

Drinking alcohol is a major sin in Islam. Major sins lead to hell fire.

Allah, The Glorious ordered Muslims in Quran to be away from alcohol and called as (Evil from the work of Satan)(5:90).

Prophetic Hadeeth says : The person who drinks alcohol is like an idol worshiper. (Eqaab al-A'maal by Shaikh al-Sadouq).

Our leading scholars stated that denying the prohibition of alcohol is denying a compulsory rule in Islam which amounts to denying Islam as a religion.
