    Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wabarakatuh,

    Bismillah,

    There is no doubt that Allah commands us in the Qur'an to enjoin what is good and forbid what is wrong. As Muslims, this is our duty. In the Qur'an, Surah Ali Imran, Allah says: "They believe in Allah and the Last Day; they enjoin Al-Ma'ruf (Islamic Monotheism, and following Prophet Muhammad SAW) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and opposing Prophet Muhammad SAW); and they hasten in (all) good works; and they are among the righteous."

    The narrations of the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, support the idea of enjoining what is good and forbidding what is wrong. On the authority of Abu Saeed al-Khudri (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah say, “Whoever of you sees an evil must then change it with his hand. If he is not able to do so, then [he must change it ] with his tongue. And if he is not able to do so, then [he must change it] with his heart. And that is the slightest [effect of] faith.”

    Therefore, one must try their hardest to change evil with their hands, that is by removing or eradicating it. However, your proposal of stealing alcohol in order to destroy it is rather strange, as you are doing something sinful (stealing) in order to stop something sinful (alcohol). Allah gives a good solution to tackling evil in the Qur'an, Surah Fussilat: "The good deed and the evil deed cannot be equal. Repel (the evil) with one which is better (i.e. Allah ordered the faithful believers to be patient at the time of anger, and to excuse those who treat them badly)"

    The Qur'an does not teach us to repel sin with further sin; rather, it tells us to repel sin with goodness. Therefore, stealing the alcohol would not be the best solution. However, if the alcohol is in your household, for example a member of the household is consuming it, and you are in a state of authority (e.g. the parent or elder), then you can dispose of that alcohol and explain that it is haram (communication is key). But, stealing it from, say, the supermarket is impermissible, as you are in no state of authority to do so.

    And Allah knows best. I have used the Qur'an and Sunnah to aid me in my answer but I am not a scholar so please do not take my post 100%.
