Drinking Jack Daniels is not permissible.

Jack Daniels is haram based on the Quran 2:219 (p. 56-57): "They will ask you [that is, the Prophet] about kharnr [grape wine] and maysir [a game of chance]. Say in both there is great sin, also benefits for mankind, but their offense is greater than their benefit. Jack Daniels is a type of whisky as whisky contains alcohol and it leads to drunkenness so it is forbidden under Islam. While being drunk a man cannot be a Muslim, his iman will rise above his head and his Salat will not be accepted during 40 days. A hadith from Abu Hurayra (Rippin & Knappert, p.72 ) based on the prophet Muhammad’s (saa) words: “A person cannot commit fornication at the same time as being a believer, nor can that person drink wine and be a believer at the same time. Nor is a thief a believer when he is stealing”.

Drinking Coca-Cola is permissible in Islam.

It is not haram because it doesn’t contain any alcohol and doesn’t lead to the condition that alcohol contained drinking. It doesn’t lead to intoxication. Muhammad (saa) said that ‘Whatever intoxicates in large quantities, then a small quantity of it is forbidden' (Rippin & Knappert, p.72) this refers to a certain beverage that intoxicates when someone drinks a lot of it but not when he drinks a little. Coca Cola contains a very small percentage of alcohol (0.001) as researchers found out but it negligible and even if a person drinks 10 cans of Coca Cola, perhaps it will harm him due to a big amount of sugar or caffeine but he’ll never be intoxicated. So, according to this hadith Coca Cola is permissible as its big amount never intoxicates even it contain very small amount of alcohol, this amount is very small.

Non-alcoholic beer is permissible, too.

Nonalcoholic beer doesn’t contain alcohol and its consumption in a large amount doesn’t lead to any addiction or cannot intoxicate as a grape juice or apple cider.

Smoking is makrooh but not haram

“And spend in the way of Allah and do not throw [yourselves] with your [own] hands into destruction [by refraining]. And do good; indeed, Allah loves the doers of good” – the Quran (2; 195. p.51). During Muhammad’s (saa) period there wasn’t any cigarettes but based on this ayat we can conclude that cigarettes harm people’s health, every year millions of people die due to lung diseases reasoned by smoking. Moreover smokers harm not only themselves but surrounding people. It is makrooh because cigarettes definitely don’t mention in the Quran but it has ayats warning about its consequences.

Smoking hashish is haram at least makrooh

“Every intoxicant is khamr (a wine) and every khamr is harām (prohibited)” (Rippin & Knappert, p.73). Smoking hashish leads to losing control and addiction, awful health problems so it is not permissible. Accordingly, the application of the texts of the Qur'an and Sunnah to hashish is similar to that of wine.
