What Does The Bible/quoran And God Say About Smoking Cigarrettes?

The perception of people differ a lot on smoking cigarettes.

I attended a christain forum recently where smoking was condemned so much that I felt it was too much. In as much as I accept that it has very negative effects on health, can we really say it is a sin?

If so, will the taking of sugar by a diabetic person or taking of salt by a person with high blood pressure (hypertensive) which equally have deadly consequencies qualify as a sin in the same manner as cigarettes?

Can our bible scholars please help me by showing where the bible specifically condemns this as sin?

1)1st or2nd cor 7:1 explains that "we should cleanse ourselves of every defilement of the spirit and flesh(body)". Now is ciggarette not defiling or polluting the body?

2) Our body is the temple of God. Will it be good and wise to pollute God's temple

3)Our body really is the Lord's(He created it)not ours. Will it be good to spoil what does not belong to you since smoking spoil or pollute our inside

Therefore note that the Bible does not say anything about killing with a gun but does forbid murder since killing is killing no matter the method, likewise the bible does not say anything about smoking but does forbid the polluting of our body through any means

I hate cigarette myself. But good ganja is good. that is why i burn it all the time and it is healthy to your body better than any herbal medicine you can ever fine. In Holland where i live it is legal to burn wed, there are shops for it, walked right inn buy and tie it good and blaze it up. Look folks there is no sin in eating vegetables irrespective on how it is being consumed whether cocked or set ablaze.

Thanks.

is the question here SIN or HEALTH!?!?!?!?!

Sin is very misunderstood and we confuse sins with SIN! I have syudied this topic hard for personal reasons and i have come to a conclusion which I believe is right! (please do not accept this as YOUR truth!!)

it damages your health! FACT! it costs you money! FACT!!! it can be unpleasant to others! FACT!!!! it is selfish! FACT.

now the word say whatsoever things are pure, of good report, loving, etc, think on these things.

I wholeheartedly believe that smoking is bad for you, your health and those around you so from a COMMONSENSE point of view, you should not do it!

will this habbit stop you from going to heaven IF you have believed in your heart and confessed with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, then ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!! you will get your reward for how you lived your life and in that sense you WILL suffer loss, but not the way we think loss is!!!! we confuse suffering loss with hell and so we live in constant fear of God! how ironic that the one person we should be absolutely comfortable with is the one we lie to and pretend to all day!!! LOL God help us!!!

Now some of you are going to start to talk about "does that mean you can do anything and still go to heavn?!?!?!?" Well, what does the bible say? that has to be the answer to EVERY single question we might have!

We have this human nature to want to PAY for everything so to accept that smoking does not stop you from going to heaven sounds like herecy to us! We think this because we see smoking as a "sinful pleasure" and so having anything to do with that AUTOMATICALLY means hell!

go and read the word again, you will see the Father and Lord the way He really is!

So, in summary, answer this question YOURSELF!!!! based on you going back to study the word and showing your self approved!!!!!

PS - TRUTH IS A VERY LONELY PLACE!!!! UNLIKE TRADITION WHICH IS A CROWDED PARTY!!!!

Smoking Is Haram (Islamically Unlawful)……Why?

1- The declaration that “There is no God Worthy of being worshipped except Allah & that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah”, demands that the Muslim accepts the Decrees set by Allah and by His Messenger-Muhammad (SAAW)

2- Islam is a Revelation from Allah with a complete code of life. It tells what is good and what is evil:

(And We have shown him (man) the two ways (good and evil) ) (Qur’an 90: 10)

(He allows them all that is good and lawful, and prohibits them as unlawful all that is evil (things, deeds, beliefs, persons, foods, drinks, etc.) ) (Quran 7:157)

So is Smoking (cigarettes, pipes, etc.) evil or not? Let us examine its effects:

• smoking is a killer: causes lung-cancer, lung-tuberculosis and heart diseases.

Allah says:

(And do not kill yourselves ) (Qur’an 4:29)

He also says:

(And do not throw yourselves into destruction) (Qur’an 2:195)

These verses are sufficient to make smoking Haram.

• smoking is a wasting of wealth.

Allah says:

(…But spend not wastefully (your wealth) in the manner of a spendthrift, Verily, spendthrifts are brothers of the devils, and the Devil (Satan) is ever ungrateful to his Lord) (Qur’an 17:26-27)

The smoker is unjust to himself as well as his family by burning away his money and his chest!

the smoker not only causes harm to himself, he/she also inflicts harms upon others around him/her.

The Prophet (S.A.W)

"There should be neither harming nor reciprocating harm” (Saheeh Al-Jami 7517)

• The smoker cause the spread of evil, they smoke openly and thus encourage others to do the same.

• The smokers dislike fasting and praying because they become impatient. They want to go for the next “round”. The smoker becomes like an edict.

• The smoker smells bad! His car, home, clothes etc. carry the bad smell too.

3- From the above, it is clear that smoking is evil and thus it is Haram (unlawful).

If you are under any kind of stress, then turn to Allah, read the Qur’an, and be with non-smokers. Seek Allah’s help and don’t be enslaved to something that burns you and your money.

For a sane there is no need for explanation, for an no explanation is enough!
