What is the boards consensus on smoking cigarettes? I have heard some say it is Haram based on what ever harms you is haram.
And have heard others say it is maqroo3 (frowned upon)
Es_Selam'un Aleykum ve Rahmetullahi ve Berakatuh Brother Tirawi,
Brother,here is my view on the issue.I know from the books that it is makrooh for only looking from the one side and only imagining the name of smoking;but looking from the whole side minding with an complex mind we can easily see that regularly acting the makroohs is haram.;as an example 10 cigarettes in one day means he regularly acts the makrooh ten times a day or regularly breaks the advice of Islam ten times a day.Also from an another reference,wasting is absolutely haram in Islam and also we know from the scientific explanations that it is also haram with looking to the view of Islam on the health of human being that it really kills the persons.
At the ancient times, scholars did not give so much fatwas about the issue because they were not knowing the real scene of the issue;but today,we have matured our minds with the help of Allah using the science with looking it's cause and shape,this is enough for knowing that it is haram;because Islam is not an history book that it does not produce new resolutions to the issues.Yes,it produces;the important thing is caring how to using the soul of Islam to the new resolutions,it needs wisdom and effort,you have to adore your hearts to the way;unless someone will come and compose a parish pray some of them don't covers their heads and mixed between the genders so like she finished all of the responsibilities in her life came from Allah and she now tries the extras?,this is not the issue of the thread i am passing...
Today,in my city;i see the oncology centers at tevery corner of the big streets.They open like the markets increasing day by day for servicing to the cancer sufferers.Also,i lost my father from cancer by the cause of his smoke and i really know what can a smoke will cause...As you know,also addicting to a useless thing is also haram in Islam and it does not fit to a muslim who should addict to Tawhid.Irresolute,weak muslim characters who addicted to smoke is not an good scene from the outside.Allah created us for being his Representative,bold Representatives who are ready to break all their addictions inside His almighty...I am asking to the smokers;if we can't resist to being the slave of an smoke then how we will pass the exams inside the rod to heaven;more, road to the love of Allah being His slave.Please,improve your characters in the small works then Allah may say that he is ready to the conditions of this way who the last prophet walked away.Give Him i believe then He will give you too...
This is my poor view about the issue,for understanding the dirty scene of smoke,we should visit to Morocco(especially Marakech)...Allah knows the best
