First of all, I would like to ask if Ramadan has already began? I mean, has moon been sighted for real all around world? Or is it tomorrow on Monday? I were not able to find information about sightings of a moon.... So will I began my Ramadan on monday?
My problem is smoking, I feel I can not be without sigarettes for a day, even a morning. I have smoked about 7-8 years pack a day (so about 4 years before I found Islam), and am REALLY addicted to it.
Does it count as a disease, especially as it (being without nicotine with all its symphonies it causes) could do serious damage for my school efforts (can not consentrate, etc.)
I have heard that diseases are valid reason to break rules of Ramadan in that particular subject connected to disease.
And I have also hear that during Ramadan fasting nothing should go to stomach, but ain´t smoke going to lungs?
And then about that other smoking habit, less addictive but more intoxicating your mind, that I have had almost as far as I have smoked cigarettes, and I smoke that too every day....
So you propably quessed, maryjane....
Reason I smoke maryjane every day is that I am recovering alcoholist, I still strugle to stay away from alcohol every day. Another, bigger reason (and reason for alcoholism) is one most wonderful woman in the world and a sad results of faaling into one-sided love, that has nearly killed me, and is still haunting, damaging, deppressing and putting me down..... But that would be story of its own, 10 years in beginning of next March. O how I still recall that week on that congregation-camp with Hale-Bob comet with its two tailes in the sky.....
So I suffer severe addictions, mental problems (called love), AND MEDICINE FOR THAT (and alcoholism even deepening my deppression) HAS BEEN SMOKING. Wouldn´t that be counted as a disease? Especially as it interferes more important things for sake of Islam if stopped...
So should I smoke during days of Ramadan, if it is beficial for Islam in other ways (and I mean REALLY beneficial)? After all, it is not going to stomach, but to lungs....
marijuana will make mental health problems worse. seriously. it can even trigger schizophrenia in susceptable people.
if you are having proplems with depression see your doctor and get some proper medication for it, and also counselling.
as far as I know taking any medication breaks the fast unless it is impossible to take the medication only during the night. there are quite a number of fatwas on this issue though maybe someone can post them
Take this advice seriously. You need to first enter detox rehab before you can perform during ramadan. Once your off mj, then you need to seriously work on your cigs. For the girl, have your doc refer you to someone for talk tharapy.
Brothers and Sisters first of all there is no scientific proof that cannabis (marijuana) is physically or mentally bad for you, other than the fact that you are breathing in smoke, marijuana has many medical purposes as do many other herbs and plants, don't be fooled by this subject, if you research the history of marijuana you will find that the only reason it is demonized and labeled as a drug is all political (don't be a fool), i will not get into this matter because it is too long. secondly, i do not believe that the consumption of marijuana is haraam, Muslims along with other other cultures all over the world have been smoking and growing cannabis for thousands of years. it does not cloud your mind like alcohol and it can relive the most painful headaches and other medical problems. there are studies that have proven tobacco is much more harmful to the body than marijuana. But I will agree that if consumed during fasting , that it will break your fast and that goes for anything you smoke or consume.
Thank you brothers and sisters and please read more about something before you take it to heart.
I am a smoker i have been smoking for 10 years. I want to be the first to say smoking is Haram.
Quran 2:195 Sahih International translation
And spend in the way of Allah and do not throw [yourselves] with your [own] hands into destruction [by refraining]. And do good; indeed, Allah loves the doers of good.
There are 3 prats to this verse.
"Spend in the way of allah" how can you do this if like me you are quandering you money on ciggerets.
"do not throw [yourselves] with your [own] hands into destruction [by refraining]" That is self explanitory ciggeretts will eventually kill you or shorten you live and cause nothing but destruction of your internal organs. We must refrain.
"And do good; indeed, Allah loves the doers of good" God has asked us to refrain from such acts and stated that refraining is a good act and that he loves the doers of good. May allah accept any our abstanace from this evil as ibadah and strengthen our will that we quit this forever Insha-allah.
But I feel the Quran is not direct for a reason, everyone interprets it to their own understanding so what is right and wrong at the end of the day ?... Honestly speaking, Almost everything in this world is harmful, depending on how you use it.. For example,Simply Eating chocolates is harmful because at the long run it gives you diabetes however, when you eat chocolate in moderation or you control how you use it because every individual is different. So we shouldn't eat chocolates? Is it haram?... I feel it's all about perspective Tbh, because one is critically thinking but I might be wrong and so can everyone else because only Allah knows and only he can be certain of what he meant. The only thing I'm certain about is that he is my one and only God and I have faith also, God sees my intention, and intention is the most important thing. Ramadan Kareem X
Someking pot is not a problem. don't listen to them. although I know that smoking during the sacrd month has been forbidden by some scholars. I smoke pot everyday and I have no mental problems... I study when I'm high.. I passed exams.. got sright As no problems but be carefull it depends on the person.. so take it easy or don't smoke it at all
Just think. Is inhaling and exhaling the fumes from a burning plant natural? Like is that something every human experiences in their life time or do you go out of your way to do it? (Coming from a smoker) may Allah forgive us. Ameen
Cannabis Classes as Medicine in USA now!! So whats the rule on medicinal Marijuana? As medical research shows there is more benefits than disadvantages to the use of it.. Also it is non cargcengenic to lungs when compared to smoking tobbacoo/shisha that is considered like mokrul in most islamic societies.
Personally, I think the science speaks for itself. Today, marijuana I becoming very common in medicine. It's been proven to have vast potential for medical use as well as the hemp plant having endless free energy possibilities and biodegradable textile contribution. It is a natural occuring plant as common or even more so than an apple tree. It is considers a weed which can also be considered an herb. Dill weed is an herb. The Qur'an specifically states that all herbs and vegetables and fruits are halal for consumption. The Qur'an does NOT specify the method of consumption so smoking is not ruled out. Also, it can just as easily and effectively be consumed by eating it, turning it to a liquid and drinking it. Now, during fasting, eating and drinking are forbidden. Consuming meds by the mouth are off limits. But would you still use skin cream? Nasal spray? And ultimately, do you breathe? Yes. Breathing is an involuntary action. We can not control how many chemicals we breathe in daily. We voluntarily breathe in cleaning fumes, etc.. This does not break the fast. So why would smoking an herb, break the fast? It is a medical treatment for some of the most awful illness on earth. Would that be denied to the sick who struggle to fast but need to remain functional by way of a medication be haram, or against the laws of fasting? Anxiety would stop someone from being able to fast. But marijuana combats the symptoms to keep one level headed and at ease rather than upset and tense. Furthermore, it is found in nature. If not for global bans on it's use, a man made law only, it cant be found in nature but I bet it could 1400 years ago. I bet it was everywhere in the hot Middle-Eastern lush areas like the Nile delta. Meaning even the poorest of the poor could get it out of nature, fashion a pipe out of a stick and smoke it, or simply eat it. It was once a free plant. To go even more in depth, the human brain is equipped with, as well as every living mammal, something called "endocannabinoids. These exist for one purpose. To process THC. Only one plant in the known universe contains THC. Marijuana! So, we would have to assume GOD put this plant on earth, and put these endocannabinoids in our bodies for a very obvious and specific reason. Because we are meant to use it. And it has only had negative connotations associated with it BECAUSE of human laws ALONE. The evidence and facts I give here will hopefully open up some minds to understanding that to judge God's creation based on limited knowledge of the substance, is folly. Thanks!
