Why Do You Smoke
Muhammad Ibraaheem Al-Hamad
All praise is due to Allaah alone; may He exalt the mention of the final of allProphets and Messengers, our Prophet Muhammad, his family and all hiscompanions.Smoking is a dangerous epidemic and a destructive adversity that catches manypeople in its trap. Many of them have live hearts and strong Islamic emotions, yetthey are afflicted with smoking, and they do not deny its harm, its effects and itsprohibition; they hope to give it up, and strive to get rid of it. Such people have aright upon their brothers to help them and take their hands to the shore of safety.If you ask any smoker why he smokes, you would receive many differentanswers. Some people smoke when they need relief from depression; others smoketo ease the stress of estrangement from their families. Some people smoke withfriends to have fun, while others smoke to rid themselves of worry and anger. Thereare those that smoke to imitate those whom they admire, or perhaps they smokebecause they have been doing it from a young age and cannot stop. You will evenfind those who say, “I smoke because it is useful, and I do not believe it isprohibited.”These are generally the excuses smokers give, and based on this, allow me, mydear beloved smoking brothers, to discuss this issue with you for a short while, andperhaps we will come to a satisfying conclusion.Beloved brother! Are you not convinced that smoking is prohibited and that it hasa very bad impact? Don’t you ever think seriously to permanently give it up? Youwould possibly say, “Yes, but I want to become more convinced that it is harmful sothat I can give it up.” I would say to you, please lend me your ear and listen withyour heart to what I am about to say.

Once this is established, you mustremember that smoking is one of the Khabaa’ith (any evil or harmful act); it is aform of wasting money; you kill yourself by smoking; you are leading yourself todestruction; you harm other Muslims. Do these things express your obedience toAllaah or disobedience to Allaah?
