Counter question to clarify if it was Makruh or Haram and Mufti Sahib replied, "It would be Makrooh e Tahrimi, and Allah knows best"

Vaping risk for elderly as pneumonia link revealed

8 February 2018

Vaping is dangerous for the elderly because it increases the risk of deadly pneumonia, new research suggests.
A study found vapour from electronic cigarettes could be as bad as traditional tobacco or even vehicle exhaust at sticking harmful bacteria to the airways, increasing chances of the inflammatory lung condition.

Tests on both humans and mice by Queen Mary University of London found the effect was present in both nicotine and non-nicotine e-cigarettes.

The research examined the effects of vaping on a molecule produced by the cells that line the airways called PAFR (platelet-activating factor receptor), which previous research has shown helps stick bugs associated with pneumonia to the nose, throat and lungs.

The team studied the cells lining the nose of 17 regular e-cigarette users one hour after vaping, and found the PAFR levels had tripled compared to normal levels.

They suggested that people at high risk of pneumonia consider using nicotine patches or gum as alternative means of giving up traditional cigarettes.



Professor Jonathan Grigg, who led the research, said: “Together, these results suggest that vaping makes the airways more vulnerable to bacteria sticking to airway lining cells.

“If this occurs when a vaper gets exposed to the pneumococcal bacterium, this could increase the risk of infection.

“Some people may be vaping because they think it is totally safe, or in an attempt to quit smoking, but this study adds to growing evidence that inhaling vapour has the potential to cause adverse health effects.”

Pneumonia is the sixth biggest cause of death in the UK, killing 29,000 people a year with deaths mainly occurring in older people and children and babies under 10 years.

Around 220,000 people receive a diagnosis of pneumonia each year, including, last year, Jeremy Clarkson, a smoker, who said he nearly died from the condition.

The good thing about having a manager at work who smokes regularly is that when you take 5-10 minutes out for salah 2-3 times a day they won't say anything to you.

E-cigarettes can damage your DNA and increase your risk of CANCER, study reveals

They’re often portrayed as safer alternatives to cigarettes, but a new study has revealed that electronic cigarettes may be more dangerous than thought.

Researchers from the University of Minnesota have revealed that vaping can damage the DNA in your mouth, which in turn, increases your risk of cancer.

Dr Silvia Balbo, who led the study, said: “It's clear that more carcinogens arise from the combustion of tobacco in regular cigarettes than from the vapor of e-cigarettes.

”However, we don't really know the impact of inhaling the combination of compounds produced by this device.
“Just because the threats are different doesn't mean that e-cigarettes are completely safe.”

In the study, five e-cigarette users provided saliva samples before and after a 15-minute vaping session.

The researchers analysed these samples for chemicals that are known to damage DNA, and also assessed DNA damage in the cells in the volunteers’ mouths.

The results revealed that the levels of three DNA-damaging compounds - formaldehyde, acrolein and methylglyoxal - increased in the saliva after vaping.

And compared with people who don't vape, four of the five e-cigarette users showed increased DNA damage related to acrolein exposure.

This type of damage, called a DNA adduct, occurs when toxic chemicals react with DNA.
Worryingly, if the cell does not repair the damage, it could lead to cancer, according to the researchers.

The team now plans to replicate the study on a larger scale, to see how the level of DNA adducts differs between e-cigarette users and regular cigarette users.

Dr Balbo said: “Comparing e-cigarettes and tobacco cigarettes is really like comparing apples and oranges. The exposures are completely different.

“We still don't know exactly what these e-cigarette devices are doing and what kinds of effects they may have on health, but our findings suggest that a closer look is warranted."

Ghutka has been mentioned in this thread but not got much attention and since this thread is about those harmful things, I thought I'd add this here too.

www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4672840/

Quote:
CONCLUSION:
There are basic differences in the addiction biology of Gutkha chewing and smoking. A Gutkha chewer relates the habit to daily activities. Gutkha addiction can be considered as a form of conditioned reflex, rather than actual craving for nicotine, which probably plays a minor role in addiction. However, addiction potential of nicotine cannot be completely ruled out. Further development of NRT products with similar physical form and flavor to Gutkha would probably aid in similar oral gratification and might lower the rates of relapse.


At the end of the day, for some it has become an addiction and it can mess with your life.

I have a relative in Pakistan who ate Ghutka religiously. He got married and eventually gave it up. Allah did not give them any children and 13 years had passed.

I'm not linking the 2 togeher, but he did!

13 years later and a kicked habit, Allah blessed him with a baby boy, Alhumdulillah.

Funny thing is, he was so embarrased to go round telling anyone that his wife was expecting after so many years :(

Even if Ghutka might not be addictive for some, it sure is ugly and disgusting. The side effects are very bad!





To smile is Sunnah, but to have a mouth like this! :(

Alert for an epidemic of oral cancer due to use of the betel quid substitutes gutkha and pan masala: a review of agents and causative mechanisms

PMID: 15215323 DOI: 10.1093/mutage/geh036
pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/15215323/
Abstract
Quote:
In south-east Asia, Taiwan and Papua New Guinea, smoking, alcohol consumption and chewing of betel quid with or without tobacco or areca nut with or without tobacco are the predominant causes of oral cancer. In most areas, betel quid consists of a mixture of areca nut, slaked lime, catechu and several condiments according to taste, wrapped in a betel leaf. Almost all habitual chewers use tobacco with or without the betel quid. In the last few decades, small, attractive and inexpensive sachets of betel quid substitutes have become widely available. Aggressively advertised and marketed, often claimed to be safer products, they are consumed by the very young and old alike, particularly in India, but also among migrant populations from these areas world wide. The product is basically a flavoured and sweetened dry mixture of areca nut, catechu and slaked lime with tobacco (gutkha) or without tobacco (pan masala). These products have been strongly implicated in the recent increase in the incidence of oral submucous fibrosis, especially in the very young, even after a short period of use. This precancerous lesion, which has a high rate of malignant transformation, is extremely debilitating and has no known cure. The use of tobacco with lime, betel quid with tobacco, betel quid without tobacco and areca nut have been classified as carcinogenic to humans. As gutkha and pan masala are mixtures of several of these ingredients, their carcinogenic affect can be surmised. We review evidence that strongly supports causative mechanisms for genotoxicity and carcinogenicity of these substitute products. Although some recent curbs have been put on the manufacture and sale of these products, urgent action is needed to permanently ban gutkha and pan masala, together with the other established oral cancer-causing tobacco products. Further, education to reduce or eliminate home-made preparations needs to be accelerated.

Oral cancer is a highly lethal disease and one of the most debilitating and disfiguring of all malignancies in the world. According to Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS) 2010 report, 60% of tobacco users in India use only smokeless tobacco. Among 206 million smokeless tobacco users, 65.1 million are consuming gutkha. In recent years, gutkha is recognized as a life threatening disorder with the serious health consequences.

Shaykh Ashraf `Alī al-Thānwī wrote harshly about smoking and smokers, “… and the senses are clouded (by it), and they resemble the people of the Fire in that smoke exits their mouths and noses. Even smoke and fire themselves are tools of punishment (in Jahannam). They mixed with [smoke and fire] (in this dunya) and become habituated to it… It is known from the statements of the people of kashf and true dreams that its smokers do not enter the blessed company of the Prophet ﷺ, and some have seen them being punished (in death). May Allah give us refuge from it.”

Intoxicants & Their Rulings

Despite the many physical and spiritual harms noted by `ulamā’, their focus, from a juristic perspective, has been mostly on ḥashīsh’s effects on the intellect. Allah, the Exalted, created us as beings held accountable (al-mukallaf) to Belief and obedience. A consequence of this is that we are obligated to protect the intellect from corruption and obstruction. By consensus, it is categorically impermissible (ḥarām) for a Muslim to become intoxicated on purpose. The exception is in the cases of exceptional need (ḍarūrah). The mujtahid Imams Abū Yūsuf, Muḥammad, al-Shāfi`ī, Mālik, and Aḥmad defined intoxication (al-sukr) as that which causes the inability to speak clearly or rationally, walk straight and steady, differentiate good from bad, or remain orientated. Most of the scholars accepted this definition in most matters of worship (`ibādāt) and dealings (mu`āmalāt). Although Imam Abū Ḥanīfah gave a stricter definition of being in a state in which one cannot tell the sky from the ground or a male from a female, his definition pertained to matters of ḥadd punishment. In other matters of impermissibility, they agreed. The majority’s stance is derived from the customary understanding (al-`urf) of intoxication among the public. Further, Imam Abū Yūsuf is narrated to have been asked about identifying the intoxicated to which he responded, “He should be asked to recite
قُلْ يَا أَيُّهَا الْكَافِرُونَ
and be unable to do so.”[12]

In the Sharī`ah, intoxicants are of two types, liquids and solids, and they carry different rulings. Liquid intoxicants are of two types:

Liquid intoxicants fermented from grapes, raisins, and dates are categorically impermissible in any quantity.[13] This is clear in the sacred texts and by scholarly consensus. A ḥadd punishment may be given in an Islamic court system. Impermissibility cannot be removed except by an extreme need, like a threat to life or limb.
Liquid intoxicants from other sources, both natural and synthetic, are permissible with three conditions:[14]
The amount consumed does not intoxicate.
The purpose of consumption is lawful, e.g., as a medicine.
Consumption may not lead to sinful actions or resemble the activities of the sinful (al-fussāq).
Solid intoxicants, like marijuana and opium, are also of two types:

Solid intoxicants that are taken (1) in sufficient quantity to cause intoxication, (2) in quantity leading to significant harm without intoxication, or (3) purely for recreational (al-lahw) purposes as the sinful (al-fussāq) are prone to do are impermissible. A judge- or ruler-appointed punishment (al-ta`zīr) may be given in an Islamic court.
Solid intoxicants for a medicinal purpose are permissible if a viable or equally efficacious ḥalāl alternative is not available, benefit is likely, and intoxication or greater harm are not expected. If intoxication is expected, then the medication is permitted when there is a threat to life or limb (ḍarūrah). One should consult a knowledgeable, pious Muslim health practitioner to determine the likelihood of harm and benefit.[15]
A non-intoxicating liquid or solid may be used if there are no other reasons for its dislike or impermissibility, e.g., other harms, ḥarām ingredients, a habit of the fussāq, etc.

Are the Electronic cigarettes/ E cigs/ Vaporisers haraam to use?
Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net
Short Link: islamqa.org/?p=148834

As salaamu alaikum,

Are the Electronic cigarettes/ E cigs/ Vaporisers haraam to use? If yes, explain please.

Wa Alaikum Assalaam,

الجواب و بالله التوفيق

The Electronic cigarettes emit vaporised nicotine which is inhaled by an individual. Though one avoids inhaling Tabacco smoke, yet, one inhales vaporized nicotine which is a poisonous substance and is very harmful for a person.

Many people have highlighted the fact that e-cigarettes help a person give up smoking which is a great benefit, and that it is less harmful then tobacco cigarettes since it does not contain tobacco. Although this may be so, yet, there are harms in using electronic cigarettes. Many experts have concluded that e-cigarettes are no safer that regular tobacco cigarettes.

This means that just as tobacco cigarettes are harmful to one’s health and it is considered to be haram (by some Scholars) and Makrooh Tahreemi (reprehensible to a great extent) by others, so too, the electronic cigarettes will be either haram or Makrooh Tahreemi because of its harms to the body. It should be noted that the technical term ‘Makrooh Tahreemi’ indicates that something is strictly abominable in Islam and close to being haram. Hence, one must not do it.

In fact, the National Fatwa Council of Malaysia have declared e-cigarettes to be haram (unlawful, since it is harmful). Many others Scholars have issued a similar verdict. Therefore, Electronic Cigarettes will not be permissible to use.

And Allah Knows Best.

Mufti Waseem Khan.

Liquids for the electronic cigarettes that are nicotine free, Will those be permissible?
Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net
Short Link: islamqa.org/?p=148926

Message: Salaams,
I read the article on the electronic cigarettes and it stated that the nicotine is what makes it haraam. However, there are liquids for the electronic cigarettes that are nicotine free. Will those be permissible?

Wa Alaikum Assalaam,

الجواب و بالله التوفيق

Besides the issue of nicotine which is harmful, medical researchers have also stated the e-cigars cause one to develop a bad habit of smoking cigarettes which is condemned by all Scholars. In other words, it is an opening for something which is harmful. Medical experts have stated that ‘one is four times more likely to start smoking normal cigarettes’ (after smoking the e-cigars).

With respect to e-cigars that are nicotine free, these are flavoured e-cigars which come in a variety of flavours. Regarding these flavoured e-cigars, a medical article appeared on MotherJones.com which stated ‘Flavoured E-cigars maybe worse for you than nicotine.’ In a research, it was mentioned that, ‘Researchers tested 51 – e – cig flavourings including ‘cupcake’ and ‘Alien Blood’ and found chemicals linked to lung disease in 47 of them.’

This shows that even without nicotine, the e-cigars are harmful on account of different chemicals used in the flavouring as pointed out by Medical researchers. Besides this, it has been stated by many medical experts and researchers that ‘e-cigars causes one to develop the habit of smoking cigarettes.’ In other words, it leads one to adopt a practice which is condemned in Islam. Hence, it will not be permissible.

And Allah Knows Best.

Mufti Waseem Khan.

In the UK there is a clothing brand called Firetrap, it's not on the expensive side compared to other brands so is a fairly common brand people wear. But the name has always put me off as it just makes me think of Jahannam. I'm no Mufti so cannot say it's haram too wear the brand, but if I had my way I don't think I would want people to wear the brand. Or am I just making a mountain out of a molehill lol.
