Smoking continues to be one of the greatest public health concerns in the modern world. There are more than 1 billion people who smoke worldwide and 5 million people die from Tobacco use every year, not to mention the thousands of second-hand smoke victims.
Sheikh ’Uthaimeen رحمه الله gives us guidelines to help quit smoking, bi’ithnillaahi ta’ala. May Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى reward brother Faisal ibn Abdul Qaadir ibn Hassan for having penned on this much needed topic.

Many Muslims regard smoking as disliked by Sharee’ah but not forbidden. When an advice is given about smoking and its ruling you often hear a defensive response. People know the killing effects of smoking, but Satan wants them to keep on spending and burning their chests.
Certainly, cigarettes were not present in the lifetime of the Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم. However, what was present and will continue to be present is the Revelation in its forms, the Qur’aan and authentic Sunnah. The Qur’aan formulated the prohibition of everything that is evil:
وَيُحِلُّ لَهُمُ الطَّيِّبَاتِ وَيُحَرِّمُ عَلَيْهِمُ الْخَبَآئِثَ
“He allows them all that is good & lawful, & prohibits them as unlawful all that is evil.”
Evil manifests itself in things, deeds, beliefs, persons, foods, drinks, etc.
Let us see whether smoking is evil or not?
