Hadith on Alcohol: Gradual prohibition of wine, intoxicants

‘Amr ibn Shurahbil reported: When the prohibition of wine was yet to be declared, Umar ibn al-Khattab said, “O Allah, give us a clear explanation of wine.” Allah revealed the verse, “They ask you about wine and gambling. Say: In them is great sin,” (2:219). Umar was called and it was recited to him, then he said, “O Allah, give us a clear explanation of wine.” Allah revealed the verse, “O you who believe, do not approach prayer while you are intoxicated,” (4:43). Umar was called and it was recited him, then he said, “O Allah, give us a clear explanation of wine.” Allah revealed the verse, “Satan only wants to cause animosity and hatred between you through intoxicants and gambling and to divert you from the remembrance of Allah and from prayer. So will you not abstain?” (5:91). Umar was called and it was recited to him, then he said, “We have abstained.”
