Pan and cigarette shops are common in big cities like Lahore, Karachi and Faisalabad. Is this business Halal or Haram? Also, what is the ruling on Tobacco/pan in Islam?
الجواب حامدا و مصلیا
Purchasing and selling Tobacco is permissible and the income made from selling it is also Halal. As for cigarette smoking, although its usage is allowed due to it not being intoxicant, it leave a bad smell in the mouth and it is also harmful for one’s health, hence one should avoid using it.
