SMOKING
 
 
 

Definition

Smoking refers to the action of lighting a cigarette, a pipe, a cigar, a water pipe, or any other object made from tobacco or materials of similar effects. The object is then sucked on with the lips to extract smoke. This smoke is inhaled into the chest and then exhaled from the nose and mouth as a thick white smoke. "Smoking" is now used to refer to the action of producing this smoke in English, Arabic, and other languages.

 



Evidence for the Prohibition of Smoking

There are many reasons, any one of which aufficient to rule smoking prohibited. Most importantly, it is harmful in numerous ways. It is harmful to the Deen, health, environment, family, brotherhood and social relations, property, etc. The following sections will briefly outline some of its harms and evils.


 

Haram To The Deen

Smoking spoils a person’s acts of worship and reduces their rewards. For instance, it spoils the prayer, which is the pillar of Deen. Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) said: Whoever eats garlic or onion, let him avoid us and our masjid, and stay in his home. The angels are surely hurt by things that hurt the human beings(1)

 

 

Those with clean and undefiled fitrah (nature) have no doubt that the smell emanating from the mouth of a smoker is worse and more foul than that from the mouth of one who ate garlic or onion. Thus, a smoker is in between two options, either to harm the praying people and the angels with his foul smell, or miss the prayer in jamaah.

 

 

Smoking also spoils fasting. Fasting is very hard for the smoker. As soon as the day is over, he hastens to break his fast on an evil cigarette instead of sweet dates or pure water. Even if he fasts through the month Ramadan, a smoker is reluctant to fast on other days. Thus he loses the great reward of those who fast even one day in Allah’s way.


 

Harm To The Human Body

No one can deny the harm of smoking to the human body. The medical evidence for this is well established and overwhelming. Because of this, the law in many countries requires including a warning on any smoking advertisement.

 

 

Smoking contains poisonous materials, such as nicotine, tar, carbon monoxide, arsenic, benzopyrene, etc., that the smoker swallows in small proportions. Their harm accumulates with time to result in a gradual killing of the human organs and tissues.

 

The hazards of smoking to the health are hard to enumerate. Cancer, tuberculosis, heart attacks, asthma, coughing, premature birth, infertility, infections in the digestive system, high blood pressure, nervousness, mouth and teeth diseases, etc., are among the many health hazards that have been strongly linked to smoking.

 

These diseases may not appear all at once, however a smoker is most likely to suffer from some of them, and his suffering increases as he grows older. Furthermore, statistics have established that smokers’ age is, on the average, ten years less than other people’s.

This is aufficient to prohibit smoking. Islam prohibits any action that causes harm to oneself or to other people. Allah (T) says (what means):

 

<<Do not kill yourselves, Allah is indeed merciful to you.>>(2)


 

<<Do not cast yourselves, with your own hands, into destruction.>>(3)
 

And the Messenger (pnuh) says: No harm may be inflicted on oneself or others.(4)

 

The feet of a human being will not depart, on the day of Judgement, from his standing before his Lord, until he is questioned about five things: his lifetime – how did he pass it, his youth – how did he used it, his wealth – where did he earn it and how did he spend it, and how did he follow what he knew.(5)

 

Whoever consumes poison, killing himself with it, then he will he consuming his poison in the hellfire, and he will abide in it permanently and eternally.(6)


 

 

Harm To The Mind and Will Power

Smoking is harmful to the human mind and reason. An obvious demonstration of this is that one who is addicted to it passes through periods of severe craving, making it hard for him to think, concentrate, solve a problem, or do any important matter, until he smokes.

 

When one smokes, his muscles slacken, and he passes through a brief period of delirium that curtains the thought. His digestive system is also affected, causing him frequent nervousness and trembling of the hands. He passes through periods of excitability, in itation, and insomnia.

 

Thus, instead of being Allah’s slave, a smoker becomes slave to his cigarette. He develops a weaker control of his sense and reason. The faculty of reason, clear and unobstructed, is one of Allah’s great bounties on people. He (T) praised it in numerous places of the Quran; and He called on people to use it to see the truth and obey Him in a better way. Allah wants of the believer to be strong and capable of controlling the reigns of his desires. He (T) said (what means):

 

<<AIIah (T) wants to let you into His mercy, whereas those who follow the desires want you to drift far away (from the right path).>>(7)


 

Harm To The Environment

A smoker emits his poisons in the faces of his companions, wife, children, and the environment. It is well established that second-hand smoke is almost as dangerous as first-hand. Thus, whether they like it or not, a smoker’s associates are forced to inhale the smoke and be themselves smokers as well.

 

In addition to the poisons normally carried in the smoke, if a smoker has an contagious disease, such as tuberculosis or influenza, his exhaled smoke and coughing carry the disease to those around him.

 

Furthermore, a smoker irritates people by the foul smell and poisonous nature of his smoking. If they suffer from asthma or allergies, they are forced to move away from his vicinity. The Prophet (pbuh) said: Anyone who believes in Allah and the Last Day should not hurt his neighbor.(8)

 

Thus, smoking constitutes a definite harm to other people; this is prohibited, as was indicated in the hadith cited earlier.

 

Also, a smoker is certainly a bad companion to sit with, as is depicted in the following hadith:

 

Verily, the example of a good companion and a bad one is like that of a perfume merchant and a blacksmith: As for the perfume merchant, he would either grant you (some perfume), or you would buy (some perfume) from him, or (in the least) you would get a good smell from him. And as for the blower of the bellows (ironsmith), you would either get a foul odor from him, or he would burn your clothes.(9)


 

Harm To The Property

 

A smoker wastes his wealth on that which harms and has no benefit; he will be asked about his wealth and how he spent it, as has been cited in the hadith earlier. His wealth belongs to Allah, so how would he dare to waste it in disobedience to Him? Allah (T) says (what means):

 

<<And do not entrust to the imprudent ones the possessions that Allah has placed in your charge.. >>(10)


 

<<And do not waste (your resources) extravagantly. Indeed the squanderers are the brethren of the devils>>(11)

And the Prophet (pbuh) said: Allah hates for you three things: gossiping, begging, and wasting money.(12)

 

 

Furthermore, there are numerous cases of burnt carpets, furniture, and even complete houses and establishments that have resulted from this disastrous vice.

 


 

Moral Decadence

 

Smoking is a form of moral decadence. It is most spread among the low-class immoral people. It reflects blind imitation of the non-Muslims. It is mostly consumed in bars, discos, casinos, and other: places of sin. A smoker may beg or steal if he does not have the money to buy cigarettes. He is ill-mannered with his friends and family, especially when he misses taking his necessary "dose" at the usual time.


 

Evil Substance

 

Smoking involves the consumption of an evil substance (khabeeth). It has a foul smell, foul taste, and is harmful to the body. This is aufficient to: prohibit it, because Allah (T) says (what means):

 

<<(The Prophet) who will enjoin upon them the doing of what is right, forbid them the doing of what is wrong, make lawful to them the good things of life, prohibit for them the evil things, and lift from them their burdens and the shackles that were (previously) upon them.>>(13)
 


Resembling The People Of The Fire

A smoker inhales the smoke that does not give him any nourishment. This is similar to the action of the people of the Hell fire who will eat harmful thorny plants:

 

<<No food will be there for them but a poisonous thorny plant, which will neither nourish them nor still their hunger.>>(14)


 

Bad Example

A smoker, whether he likes it or not, makes of himself an example for his children and others to follow. He leads them to commit this evil. Actions sometimes have a stronger effect than words. Thus, even if he advises them or forbids them from smoking, his partaking of it provides them with a strong excuse to do it.

 

The problem is worse when the smoker is of known piety or knowledge. In such case, his harm becomes more emphasized, because more people take him as guide and example, and are thus lead astray by him. This multiplies his sins and increases his burden.

 


 

Hostility Toward The Good People

The majority of good people avoid smoking and stay away from smokers. Therefore, a smoker would be forced to stay away from them – at least while he smokes. He puts himself in a selective exile, creating a spiritual distance and hostility between him and the good people, and a closeness to the evil people. The effects of this become more apparent and acute with time. Note that this applies equally to any sin that a person commits, small or large.


 

Low Self Esteem.

A smoker despises himself, because he feels that a little cigarette is controlling him. Realizing his weakness before desires, this creates in him a feeling of defeat in the face of hardships.


 

Scholars Verdict

Since smoking became known to Muslims, all of the great scholars who have the capability of Ijtihad (deriving verdicts in new situations) agree to its prohibition. Thus, there is no value for baseless opinions, conflicting with this, provided by self-proclaimed lesser scholars.



Warnings

In discussing the subject of the prohibition of smoking, there are some important warnings that need to be mentioned:

  1. As indicated before, the prohibition of smoking is not restricted to cigarettes, but applies as well to other objects that have similar effects such as cigars, pipes, water-pipes, chewing tobacco or sniffing tobacco, etc.
  2. The reasons mentioned above for prohibiting smoking apply as well, and more strongly, to various types of drugs and hashish such as marijuana and -tat. These materials have additional problems such as causing drunkenness, death, madness, etc.
  3. The prohibition of smoking is not restricted to consuming it, but applies as well to offering it to people, sitting with those who are smoking, or selling it. All of this involves helping people commit sins, which is prohibited, as Allah (T) says (what means):

     
    <<Help one another in righteousness and piety, and do not help one another in sinning and transgression. And fear and revere Allah; verily, Allah is severe in punishment.>>(15)

    Also, Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) said: Indeed when Allah prohibits something, he prohibits eating its price.(16)



Treating the Disease of Smoking

Only few of those addicted to smoking are able to stop it. The reasons for this are many, among which are the following:

  1. The addictive nature of the poisonous substances contained in it.
  2. The smokers are not totally convinced of its prohibition.
  3. They do not have a strong determination to refrain from it.

The following are some suggestions to help a person stop smoking:

  1. Rely on Allah sincerely, with full determination not to return to smoking, in compliance with Allah’s command:

     
    <<When you decide on a certain course of action, place your trust in Allah.>>(17)

  2. Stop immediately instead of claiming it is best to do it gradually. The gradual approach is the way of one who does not trust his determination and the will power that Allah has granted him. Let the example be taken from the Sahabah who, as soon as Allah’s command reached them regarding alcohols:

     
    <<Will you not then desist?>>(18) they immediately poured out all the alcohol that they had and said, "We desist our Lord, we desist!" They did this despite the fact that alcohol has a greater addictive power over those who drink it.

  3. Avoid the bad company of smokers and smoking environments that are full with the smell of smoke.

  4. Change the food diet by abstaining from foods and drinks that would entice the craving to smoke such as spices, meat, tea, and coffee; and eating a lot of vegetables and fruits.

  5. Use medically tested and established procedures to help stop smoking, as directed by physicians, such as nicotine patches, nicotine gum, etc.

  6. Expel the secret whispers of Satan who continuously dictates to the human being that he is weak and incapable of refraining from sinning, as Allah (T) says (what means)

     
    <<It is but Satan who instills (into you) fear of his allies; so do not fear them, but fear Me if you are (truly) believers.. >>(19)


    <<Fight then against the allies of Satan; indeed, Satan’s guile is weak.. >>(20)

Praise be to Allaah, we seek His help and His forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allaah from the evil of our own souls and from our bad deeds.

Hookah….Harmless fun or Harmful Sin??
 by Asma bint Shameem
 
 
 
Its evil has spread amongst us like wild fire.
From the West to the East, it is a slow poison that has permeated the societies, even among the Muslims.
In fact, it crept upon us so subtly that no one really thinks its bad. And it has blinded individuals who partake in this new fad to believe that it isn’t harmful.
 
What is this evil, this menace, this new fad that I am talking about?
It is the evil of smoking Hookah…..
also called sheesha, nargeela, argila, ghalyan, as well as hubbly-bubbly. 
 
Nowadays, hookah bars and cafes have popped up everywhere, fueled by the growing popularity of hookah smoking among teens and young adults.
 
It is a normal, everyday thing in some parts of the Middle East, when father and son, brother and uncle, all go out to smoke hookah while the ladies stay home. No hayaa, no respect, no sense of shame or guilt.
 
Hookah…evil ???
But I thought it was harmless…..one might say.
Harmless ?
Lets see how "harmless" hookah is.
Let the facts speak for themselves.
 
 
What science says about hookah.
 
Mayo Clinic research says: "Although many believe that the water in the hookah filters out all the "bad stuff" in the tobacco smoke, this isnt true.
 
According to a recent World Health Organization (WHO) advisory, a typical one-hour session of hookah smoking exposes the user to 100 to 200 times the volume of smoke inhaled from a single cigarette.
 
Even after passing through the water, the tobacco smoke produced still contains high levels of toxic compounds, including carbon monoxide, heavy metals and cancer-causing chemicals (carcinogens). Hookah smoking also delivers significant levels of nicotine  (about 70 times more )— the very addictive substance in tobacco." (Pulmonologist Mayo Clinic Edward Rosenow, M.D., )
 
"One single session (45-minutes) of Hookah smoking will result in the smoker breathing in 100 times more smoke than regular smoking." (World Health Organization)
 
“Contrary to what many beginning users may think, hookah tobacco use carries many of the same risks as cigarette smoking, including being linked to lung cancer and other lung diseases.” (John L. Kirkwood, President and CEO of the American Lung Association).
 
"Links have been found between water-pipe (hookah) usage and oral, lung and bladder cancer, in addition to heart disease and clogged arteries," (American Lung Association).
 
"The water moisture induced by the hookah makes the smoke less irritating and may give a false sense of security and reduce concerns about true health effects." (Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics)
 

"Water pipes (hookah) smokers were five times more likely than non-smokers to show signs of gum disease. People who smoked water pipes had five times the risk of lung cancer as non-smokers. (Journal of Periodontology)

 

The World Health Organization (WHO) regional office in Cairo estimates that 17 percent of Tuberculosis cases in the eastern Mediterranean are attributable to the smoking of water pipes.

Subhaan Allaah! Cancer of the mouth, lung and bladder…tuberculosis, heart disease, lung disease, gum disease….exposure to toxic compounds like heavy metals, nicotine, tar, arsenic….you name it.

 

 

Is there any more evidence one needs to know that smoking hookah is bad for you? !!!

 

 

 

 

What our Shareeah says about Hookah

 

1. Its harmful to yourself:

 

All these harmful materials collect in the persons body over time, resulting in a gradual killing of the organs and tissues. These diseases may not appear all at once, but the one who smokes is most likely to suffer from some of them, and his suffering increases as he grows older.

 

And anything that cause harm to one’s body or to others is haraam in Islaam.

Allaah says: "Do not kill yourself. Allah is Merciful unto you." (Surat al-Nisaa :29)

 

"…make not your own hands contribute to your destruction…" (Surah al-Baqarah:195)

 

The Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa sallam) said: “There should be neither harming nor reciprocating harm.” 

(Ahmed, Ibn Majah-saheeh by Albaani)

 

 

2. It is a poison:

 

Dont you see that it is a kind of slow poison with which a person kills himself? The statistics show that over 3 million people worldwide die from smoking-related causes each year.

 

"Whomsoever consumes poison, thereby killing himself, then he will be consuming his poison forever in the fire of Hell and he will abide in it permanently and eternally." (Bukhaari, Muslim)

 

 

3. It is suicide:

 

Knowing fully well the harmful effects of hookah, if someone still smokes it, it is suicide.

 

 “Whoever kills himself with something in this world will be punished with it on the Day of Resurrection.”  (Bukhaari, Muslim)

 

 

4. It is a waste of money and extravagance:

 

Extravagance in Islam means spending on something haraam.

 

The money that one spends on hookah is therefore an extravagance. Allah said:

"… and do not be extravagant wasters. Those who are extravagant are kinsmen of Satan." (Surat al-Israa 17:26-27)

 

 

5. You will have to answer to Allaah for this:

 

The Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa sallam) said:

"A person will not be able to move on the Day of Judgment until he is asked about ….. what he owned as to how he spent it, and his body as to what he engaged it in." (Tirmidhi-shaheeh by Albaani)"

 

 

6. Your body and life have a right over you:

 

Allaah Subhaanahu wa Taala has given you this life and this body as an Amaanah to you. You are supposed to take care of it and protect it from harm and haraam.

 

What will you say to Allaah when He asks you about it?

 

The Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa sallam)said: "Your body has a right on you."

 

 

7. Allaah requires you to control your desires:

 

Smoking hookah is a kind of following ones desires, which is prohibited in Islaam.

 

Allaah wants you to be strong and be able to resist your desires.

"Allaah wants to let you into His Mercy, whereas those who follow the desires want you to drift far away (from the right path)."

(Surah an-Nisaa:27)

 

 

8. Dont smoke it and don’t let people smoke it:

 

It is not only haraam for someone to smoke hookah himself, rather it is equally haraam to offer it to people, to sell it, buy it, or promote it in any way.

 

"Help you one another in Al­-Birr and At­-Taqwa (virtue, righteousness and piety); but do not help one another in sin and transgression. And fear Allaah. Verily, Allaah is Severe in punishment." (Surah Maidah:2)

 

 

9. Do not even sit with those who smoke, even if you dont smoke yourself:

 

And if you keep company with those who do smoke, even if you yourself dont, or even sit with the people who are smoking it, then you are still counted amongst them.

 

Allaah warns us;

And it has already been revealed to you in the Book (this Quraan) that when you hear the Verses of Allaah being denied and mocked at, then sit not with them, until they engage in a talk other than that; (but if you stayed with them) certainly in that case you would be one of them. Surely, Allaah will collect the hypocrites and disbelievers all together in Hell”  [al-Nisaa 4:140] 

 

We need to realize that smoking is haraam, whether it is hookah, cigarettes or anything else. It is bad, not just for ones health, but also for other worldly matters and much worse for the Aakhirah. It is our duty to educate ourselves, our kids, family, friends and communities about this evil, and teach everyone to stay away from it and to help those addicted to it to get help.

 

May Allah guide us and enable us to stay on the right path and do only those acts that are pleasing to Him. Ameen.

Michael Jackson has apparently changed his name after turning to Islam

Former king of pop Michael Jackson has converted to Islam and changed his name to Mikaeel, it has been reported.

The singer became a Muslim in a ceremony at a friend’s house in Los Angeles. He sat on a floor while an Imam officiated at the ceremony.

 

Jackson, 50, is due to appear at the High Court in London on Monday. He has been summoned to a case in which he is being sued by an Arab sheik.

Jackson was brought up as a Jehovah’s Witness but decided to convert to Islam while using a studio at the home of his friend to record a new album.

A source told the Sun: "They began talking to him about their beliefs, and how they thought they had become better people after they converted. Michael soon began warming to the idea.

"An Imam was summoned from the mosque and Michael went through the shahada, which is the Muslim declaration of belief.”

Mikaeel is the name of one of Allah’s angels. Jackson is said to have rejected the name Mustafa, meaning "the chosen one".

It was reported that singer Yousef Islam, 60, formerly Cat Stevens until his own conversion, was present to help Jackson celebrate.

The ceremony took place at the home of Toto keyboard player Steve Porcaro, who composed music on the singer’s Thriller album.

 

God’s Pharmacy

SUBHAN ALLAH

THIS IS SO REAL, MAKES YOU THINK TWICE

A friend sent this to me. It’s been said that God first separated the salt water from the fresh, made dry land, planted a garden, made animals and fish… all before making a human. He made and provided what we’d need before we were born. These are best & more powerful when eaten raw.


We’re such slow learners…

God left us a great clue as to what foods help what part of our body!

God’s Pharmacy! Amazing!


A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye… and YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.


A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All of the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart and blood food.


Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.


A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.


Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.


Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don’t have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body


Avocadoes, Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female – they look just like these organs. Today’s research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? It takes exactly nine (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit . There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (mo dern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).


Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.


Sweet Potatoeslook like the pancreas and actual ly bal ance the glycemic index of diabetics.


Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries


Oranges, Grapefruits, and other Citrus fruits look just l ike the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.

Onions look like the body’s cells. Today’s research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. A working companion, Garlic, also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.

These hungry Ugandan children need a school dinner!

 

The Kasiisi Porridge Project aims to give rural schoolchildren living near the Kibale National Park in western Uganda a meal every day. We have raised £45,000 but the target figure is £153,000. 

 

Help us to help them.

Three-quarters of them are too poor to bring lunch and many go without breakfast.

 

Many of them walk barefoot up to eight miles each way daily and stay at school till 6.00 pm.  So they need a meal during the day to help them concentrate. 

 

Orphans, who make up 25% of the pupils, are amongst the most vulnerable.

 

 

Just £30 buys lunch for a child for a year. So why not fund a daily mug of porridge  for one
