I recently came across that if I consumed fish marijuana or wine I would be hell bound. I have never consumed alcohol or any unprescribed drugs in my life, but I ate fish a few times but I ate it without knowing this. I am 13 years old and really concerned about this. Please help me. Thank you.

Fish, wine, and marajuana were all very expensive back in the day. This shabad is about greedy people, specifically greedy Brahmins (as referenced by the "pilgrimages, fasts, and ritials" that a low-caste member couldnt be enjoined in:

Kabeer, those mortals who consume marijuana, fish and wine - no matter what pilgrimages, fasts and rituals they follow, they will all go to hell. ||233||

This shabad is very very incorrectly understood. It doesnt condemn eating meat at all. Compare it to this shabad by Bhagat Farid Ji:

Fareed, my bread is made of wood, and hunger is my appetizer. Those who eat buttered bread, will suffer in terrible pain. ||28||

Does this condemn butter? No, of course not! There is butter in kara prashad. We use ghee lamps on Aarti-Aarta. So no - you wont go to hell.

The short answer is, no. The better answer lies here. It is all about intention.
