This book deals with the epidemic of smoking, which enslaves many of today’s Muslims, and which is aggravated by that most victims belittle its dangers and deny its prohibition.

We present a detailed analysis leading to the ruling of smoking in Islām. This, we hope, will provide a sincere advice for those who seek the truth but have only heard the wrong views.

This book includes a discussion of intoxicants, establishing the prohibition of various practices associated with them, as well as penalties (in both lives) for those who partake in them.

This book also includes a discussion of narcotics, with an overview of marijuana and qāt (or khat). Based on their established effects and harms, we conclude that narcotics are strongly prohibited, except in very limited medical settings.

This book, we hope, will provide many Muslims with guidance toward a healthier, cleaner, and worthier Islāmic personality.

May Allāh (﷾) grant us guidance and facilitation.
