Muslim scholars have differed on the issue of whether smoking cigarettes or shisha [hooka] is forbidden [haram] or prohibitively disliked [makruh tahrimi].


“And do not put yourselves into destruction.” (Surah Al Baqarah V.195)


To be on the safe side it is best that one avoids consuming or selling cigarettes or shisha. The Prophet said: “The halal is clear and the haram is clear.” (Forty Hadith Nawawi, Hadith 6)
