Nasibi belief that Holy Prophet consumed alcohol


Nasibi belief that Holy Prophet consumed alcohol 

Imam Tabarani records the following episode:

Abdullah bin Busr said: ‘Once Allah's messenger came to us riding on a mule, then Allah's messenger and his companions entered on us, hence my mother stood up and put a cloak on the mat for Allah's messenger, she put it specially for him, when Allah's messenger sat on it, my father Busr provided him dates to eat, then he ordered my mother to cook Jashish for them’. Abdullah said: ‘I was serving between my mother and father, my father was serving Allah's messenger and his companions. When my mother cooked the Jashish, I brought it to them and put it front of them and they ate it. Then he provided them Fadikh and Allah's messenger drank it and provide it to those who where sitting on his right side till the cup get empty, then I purred the cup again and brought it to Allah's messenger…’
Al-Muajam al-Kabir, Volume 2 page 14 Tradition 1177


If there is any ambiguity on the meaning of Fadikh then allow us to present the following tradition from Sahih Bukhari, Volume 6, Book 60, Number 141 which will clear all the doubts pertaining to the meaning of Fadikh:

Narrated Anas bin Malik:
We had no alcoholic drink except that which was produced from dates and which you call Fadikh. While I was standing offering drinks to Abu Talh and so-and-so and so-and-so, a man cam and said, "Has the news reached you? They said, "What is that?" He said. "Alcoholic drinks have been prohibited. They said, "Spill (the contents of these pots, O Anas! "Then they neither asked about it (alcoholic drinks) nor returned it after the news from that man.
