Smoking electronic cigarettes

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it permissible to smoke electronic cigarettes?


A: Though smoking is permissible, however it is an undesirable act. If one is smoking these electronic cigarettes merely for entertainment and fun, then one should refrain from this as it does not behove an adult to while away his time in such futile pastimes and amusements.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
