Seeing the water when drinking

Fatwaa ID: 1273

Asalam Alaikum respected Ulema,
Is it prohibited or reprehensible to drink from a vessel in which the liquid is not easily seen (from the side or top) e.g. black insulated water bottles?
Jazak Allah Khair

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

In principle, it is not necessary to look at the beverage when drinking. However, prior to drinking, one should ensure that the beverage is clean. Accordingly, it is permissible to drink from a vessel wherein the liquid is not easily seen provided that one is sure that it is clean and drinkable.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
