SMOKING IN ISLAM

Kanonliners!!!!!!!!!!!

        Following the argument the from the begining one will not fail notice that all the contributors to this thread are divided into SMOKING being haram and not haram. Well, we all know that the religion of Islam always preaches the virtue of removing harm. Thus allowing human beings(ulamas) to use their discretion in matters that are not claerly defined in the Quran or Sunnah of the Prophet(SAW). Smoking is one of such issues, which some Ulamas termed 'MAKHRUH' that is unwanted owing to the facts that smoking bringsnogood but harm the human being. However, others are more strict on the matter who believe that just think it to be makhruh will not ditter ppl, so they delared it haram.  But Wallahu A'alam, so Hafsy lady dont rushto declare smoking HALAL its not prudent decision.

May Allah guide us, Amin.  

Ma'assalam

toh ganin nan fa na iso wannan haraba...i'm no malam but i sabi copy & paste job..big thanx 2 search engines & d internet as a whole....check this out..i'll keep y'all updated...

Smoking and Islam

In Islam cleanliness and hygiene are emphasized to the extent that it has been considered a part of Iman (faith). It is very well known that a smoker's mouth is unclean and foul smelling "like a cigarette ash-tray." In the Quran, God says:

"And forbid them what is bad." - Surah Al-'Araf, 7:157

"0 ye who believe! Intoxicants and gambling are an abomination of Satan's handiwork. Eschew such abominations that ye may prosper." -  Surah Al Ma'idah, 5:93

 The word intoxicant has three meanings (6):  

(1) To induce, especially the effect of ingested alcohol.

(2) To stimulate or excite.

(3) To poison.  

The latter two meanings are very valid and applicable to nicotine.

Smoking is nothing but a form of slow suicide. The Qur'an says:

"And slay not the life which God hath forbidden..." - Surah, Al-Isra, 17:33

"And make not your own hands contribute to your destruction." - Surah, Al-Baqara, 2:195

"Nor kill or destroy yourselves for verily God hath been to you most Merciful."    Surah, An-Nisa, 4:29

Prophet Mohammed has said:

"Nor be hurt or injure others." It is scientifically proven that the exhaled smoke of the smoker is hazardous to non-smokers around him.

The amount of money a smoker spends on cigarette smoking in a period of 30 years is calculated to be Two Hundred Thousand Dollars or more. All this money is simply wasted (not including the money spent on smoker's health care).  

God says:  

"But squander not your wealth in the manner of a spend thrift, verily spendthrifts are brothers of evils." - Surah, Al-Isra, 17:26, 27

The body is polluted by smoking. Hence smokers cannot pray until they have cleansed themselves. According to the Qur'an:

"0 ye who believe! Draw not near unto prayer when you are drunken, till ye know that which ye utter, nor when you are polluted save when journeying upon the road, till you have bathed." - Surah, An-Nisa, 4:43

The Christians consider the human body to be a sacred trust given to man by God because it contains the spirit breathed into it by God. Even the Qur'an says

"So, when I have made him and have breathed unto him of My spirit, do ye fall down, prostrating yourselves unto him." - Surah, Al-Hijr, 15:29.

Hence the physical body should not be polluted or injured or destroyed in any way by smoking or taking of alcohol or any type of habit-forming drugs.

Conclusion

For the foregoing reasons and for reasons considered elsewhere, smoking is Haram or unlawful in Islam, hence smoking should be discouraged and finally banned in all Islamic countries.

All smoking Muslims should give up this unhealthy and un-Islamic activity. The best way to give it up is to stop all smoking completely. Tapering off on the amount one smokes does not work for most people. It is not easy to quit suddenly, but it is presently the most successful way. There are many ways and techniques available for a serious minded person to give up smoking.  For the Muslims who sincerely practice Islam and who submit themselves to the Will of God, this should not be a difficult task.
