I'm a Muslim do you know how awkward it is when people give ME wine as a gift?

I'm Muslim to "does secret cool Muslim handshake" but yeah you just sort of say thanks but I don't drink and then they try ask you questions about why you can't which make you launch into a lengthy conversation about your religion( I tend to slip in some stupid stuff like how when we all pray together we can control the weather) it's so much fun and they believe it for a while anyway.

You don't need to discuss your religious beliefs. You can say 'I don't drink' and leave it at that. There are so many reasons to not drink, and it's a personal decision.

2- since when cant Muslims drink wine?? My friend can drink wine. It's true they don't break open a bottle for Ramadan (sp?) but they still drink it.

Very devout muslims don't drink, but they can just regift. A recovering alcoholic getting wine is much worse because they were once addicted and will have more trouble controlling the urge than a Muslim/ non-drinker.

You might be a Muslim, but you obviously don't read the Qur'an. "And do not give the weak-minded your property, which Allah has made a means of sustenance for you, but provide for them the unacceptable gifts given to you from others as a means to feed, clothe, and quench their thirst." An-Nisa (4:4) Basically, Allah invented regifting. Hint hint.

Yes, but vodka bottles are twist tops where most wine bottles need a cork screw. Hopefully the neighbor didn't have one and fell off the wagon. You didn't know, OP. Wine is a great gift to anyone else. I received a few great ones myself this holiday. (: Hob Nob my fav.
