Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said:

A drunkard was brought to the Prophet (ﷺ). He said, "Give him a beating." Then some beat him with their hands, some with their shoes, and some with (a folded) piece of cloth. When he left, someone said to him: "May Allah disgrace you!" The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Do not help Satan overcome him by uttering such words."[Al- Bukhari].

وعنه قال‏:‏ أتي النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم برجل قد شرب قال‏:‏ ‏"‏اضربوه‏"‏ قال أبو هريرة‏:‏ فمنا الضارب بيده، والضارب بنعله، والضارب بثوبه‏.‏ فلما انصرف، قال بعض القوم‏:‏ أخزاك الله، قال‏:‏ ‏"‏لا تقولوا هذا، لا تُعينوا عليه الشيطان‏"‏ ‏(‏‏(‏رواه البخاري‏)‏‏)‏‏.‏
