Hadith explains more
There are a variety Hadeeths which further explains the prohibition. It is eg. not only forbidden to drink alcohol. To sell, produce and buy it is also prohibited.
"Anas (ra) has reported that the Prophet Muhammad (peace) cursed ten groups of people who deal with alcohol. The extracting alcohol, the provider of the distillate, the drinking of alcohol, the carrying alcohol, the person receiving the cage to themselves , the serving of alcohol, the selling of alcohol, the money that is usually received by alcohol, those who purchase alcohol and the person receiving it bought for himself. "[Tirmidhi]
There is no minimum amount you can drink. All alcohol is prohibited.
Jabir (ra), one of the companions of the Prophet, reported that Muhammad (peace) said: "If a large amount of something will cause intoxication, then a small amount of it is prohibited." [Tirmidhi]
By drinking alcohol, we lose not only a good life here on earth. We lose the reward from Allah (swt) and paradise in the next life.
Abdullah ibn Umar reported that the Prophet (saas) said: "If someone drinking any alcoholic Allah is, not going to accept his prayer of 40 days, but if he repents, Allah will forgive him." (Tirmidhi) The same person told me that the Prophet (saas) said: "There are three people whom Allah has forbidden paradise: the one who is dependent on alcohol, an irresponsible son and a cuckold who close their eyes to their family's honor." [Ahmed]
Alcohol destroys much of society. As Muslims, we should be proud that Allah (swt) has prohibited this awful drink. Allah (swt) has of course created us and knows what is good for us. We have to trust his words and follow them in all situations. If we do so, we get the good both in this life and the next, inshaAllah.
