Its already an issue to smoke purely from a medical perspective. ..If one smokes one must try to desist ITS A HARD HABIT TO BREAK.....but denying what the scholars say is a danger spiritually Allahu `alam
What is the ruling in Islam on growing tobacco and on the money which the fellaheen earn from selling it?
Praise be to Allaah.†
It is not permissible to grow tobacco, or to sell it or use it, because it is haraam for several reasons, because it is very harmful to the health, because it is filthy and evil (khabeeth), and because there is no benefit in it. Muslims have to give it up and keep away from it, and not grow it or deal in it, because when Allaah forbids a thing, He forbids its price. And Allaah knows best.
Salafi verdict 2 (first verdict posted on page 1 by Seifeddine)
Once upon a time, going to the clubs, free mixing, loud music and dancing was a distant frightening thought even in the mind of a liberal Muslim.
Today however, we see many Shisha cafes, bars, lounges bars etc. being set up all to exploit the craze of smoking Shisha.
In doing so they have loud music, free mixing and even in some cases dancing. I've even heard of special nights when they bring in belly dancers (Astaghfirullah!).
To top this, some even have private areas/rooms/booths for the more practicing Muslim... these rooms have Music, TV screens, Games consoles.
These places are run mainly by Muslims and their main customers are young Muslims.
They mimic the clubs and offer their Muslim customers a "halal club" experience (of course they won't call it that...).
What a dire state we are in, what a terrible condition our hearts are in.
It is very saddening to think these people, most of who are very talented individuals, waste their efforts on things that are not only bad for them, but also bad for others.
Their hearts are drowned in the money, the fame, the popularity, at feeling important and the thought of "being a boss"... Their hearts no longer have any room to understand what sin is....
Being a former smoker and a regular attendee at Shisha bars, I now fully understand the dangers they pose to our Muslim community, especially the youngsters.
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
