Assalaamu alaikum [peace be to you],
Why would a person want to take something harmful into his body?
Why would a rational human being want to dull his senses and cloud his judgment?
In a world given to drowning its sorrows in alcohol and drugs, helping people to forget the harsh realities of life and allowing them to enjoy a brief moment of happiness brought about by drink, Islam has a total prohibition on alcohol and all intoxicants. They are haram (forbidden) to Muslims. For many people, the problems of this world are too much to bear. Having no faith, or not enough faith to sustain them and give them hope, they turn to drinking.
For the devout Muslim, it is sufficient reason to shun alcohol that Almighty Allah forbids it.
The God said in his final revelation:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنَّمَا الْخَمْرُ وَالْمَيْسِرُ وَالْأَنصَابُ وَالْأَزْلَامُ رِجْسٌ مِّنْ عَمَلِ الشَّيْطَانِ فَاجْتَنِبُوهُ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ
O you who believe! al-khamr and gambling, (sacrificing on) stone altars, and (divination by) arrows, are an abomination of Satan's handwork: so avoid it that you may prosper"
translation of 5:90
The word used in the Qur'an is الخمر Al-khamr, which comes from a word meaning "to ferment," so it is usually translated as wine or alcohol (or "intoxicant"). However, as more modern mind-altering drugs have become available, these, too, have been understood to fall within the prohibition.
This, alone, is enough for the Devout Muslim to avoid alcohol and all intoxicants. Muslims know that Allah cares for us with an infinite care and has given every advice for us to avoid harm and to do good things that will benefit us.
The early Muslims could not have known what recent medical and scientific studies have shown about alcohol. They could not have known, for example, that Alcohol consumption causes:
- Slurred speech, Drowsiness, Vomiting, Diarrhea, Upset stomach, Headaches and Breathing difficulties.
- Distorted vision and hearing, Impaired judgment and Decreased perception and coordination
- Unconsciousness, Anemia (loss of red blood cells) and Blackouts (memory lapses, where the drinker cannot remember events that occurred while under the influence)
- Unintentional injuries such as car crash, falls, burns, drowning
- Intentional injuries such as firearm injuries, sexual assault, domestic violence
- Increased on-the-job injuries and loss of productivity
- Increased family problems, broken relationships
- High blood pressure, stroke, and other heart-related diseases
- Liver disease, Nerve damage and Permanent damage to the brain
- Sexual problems
- Vitamin B1 deficiency, which can lead to a disorder characterized by amnesia, apathy and disorientation
- Ulcers, Gastritis (inflammation of stomach walls), Malnutrition and Cancer of the mouth and throat
- Alcohol poisoning, Coma and death
Glory be to the God almighty that these things were prevented for Muslims 1400 years ago!
Some non-Muslims ask us "Why alcohol is forbidden in Islam?" the answer is clear: IT IS HARMFUL TO US. It is harmful to us, physically, and it also harms us as people. Why would we, as Muslims, need to take solace in drink? One of the saddest features of life in the Western Non-Muslim world, for example, is how some workers look forward all week long to the end of the week when they can go out together to the pub. This often leads to drunkenness and a lowering of one's guard, which in turn leads to other bad behaviors. How sad that many people, because of loneliness and depression, turn to drink and to drugs to fill in that desperate need for affection or fulfillment in life. What a tragedy that alcohol has torn apart families and broken many lives and careers. In a world where they feel loved and respected, people would not need these artificial stimulants to make them feel good. One of the amazing features of the Muslim world is that Muslims can go out together for fun and can be genuinely happy, without even thinking of the need for alcohol.
It is a pity that many non-Muslims consider the consumption of alcohol a social necessity, whereas it is not a necessity at all. A glass of wine or a glass of whisky is just not necessary to have fun, so why increase the risk of illness as a result? Why allow your mind to become less than lucid because of alcohol and other intoxicants? Why make a fool of yourself in front of others or say things which you might regret later, when you can socialize with friends and family just as easily over fruit juices or soft drinks?
When Islam prohibited alcohol and drugs, it prohibited them whether they are taken in much or little amounts. If a person is allowed to take the little, the much will be taken later. This prohibition is based on the Shari'ah objective of maintaining and keeping safe one's mind.
The Prophet -peace be upon him- is reported to have said:"Of that which intoxicates in a large amount, a small amount is haram."
He also said: "If a bucketful intoxicates, a sip of it (the thing that intoxicates) is haram."

He -glory be to him- also said:
“And [we (God) have] shown him [man] the two ways [good and evil]”
translation of 90:10
Allah -Glory be to him- has given us the right and freedom to choose our own path, whichever path we chose He makes that path easier for us. So choose the right one which leads to righteousness so you can have Allah’s mercy and countless blessings.)
The God also said:
وَلَا تُلْقُوا بِأَيْدِيكُمْ إِلَى التَّهْلُكَةِ
"Don’t make your own hands the cause of your own destruction"
translation of 2:195
وَلَا تَقْتُلُوا أَنفُسَكُمْ
And do not kill yourselves"
translation of 4:29
Smoking Kills. it's a fact. and it’s even written on every cigarette pack, and we all know it. still some Muslims argue that smoking is not haram because the Qur'an doesn't say so. As a matter of fact, all prohibitions in Islam are not named one by one. a few general ones are named in the Qur'an and hadith and rules are set for people to deduce the rest. Judgment is made not only through explicit and specific rules but also deduced by judging from the scientific discoveries of the consequences and effects of the subject in question. According to WHO (World Health Organization) www.who.int/mediacentre/factsh… Tobacco kills nearly 6 million people each year. More than five million of those deaths are the result of direct tobacco use while more than 600 000 are the result of non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke. isn't this enough reason?
The God almighty gave us a rule of how to identify what's haram and what's halal. For example, he said in the Qur'an:
وَيُحِلُّ لَهُمُ الطَّيِّبَاتِ وَيُحَرِّمُ عَلَيْهِمُ الْخَبَائِثَ
“And [the prophet] makes lawful to them [the believers] the good things and makes unlawful to them impure things”
translation of 7:157
Just ask yourself, is cigarette pure or impure? I'm not asking about it when it's still unpacked.
As a matter of fact, Cigarette IS impure. if you disagree, then google images of "cigarette disease" and enjoy them.
I say cigarette is impure as it causes several diseases which are mentioned again and again by doctors, it contains nicotine which is nothing more but a poison.
if I were to tell you: "look, I have a big bottle of poison. what do you say I give you one sip per day until you finish the whole bottle?" that's crazy, right? what if I ask you to pay me for the bottle of poison? only a mad person would accept such insanity.
Besides, since Smoking is addictive and harmful, it's a waste of money. a smoker burns his wealth for no good reason and there is no difference between the person who’s smoking and the person who commits suicide.
Did you know that the Lord almighty said:
وَلَا تُبَذِّرْ تَبْذِيرًا إِنَّ الْمُبَذِّرِينَ كَانُوا إِخْوَانَ الشَّيَاطِينِ ۖ وَكَانَ الشَّيْطَانُ لِرَبِّهِ كَفُورًا
And do not spend wastefully, indeed, the wasteful are brothers of the devils, and ever has Satan been to his Lord ungrateful"
translation from 17:26-27
The prophet Mohammed -peace be upon him- said: "There should be neither harming nor reciprocating harm" Therefore the prohibition of smoking is not restricted to consuming it, but applies as well to offering it to people, sitting with those who are smoking, or selling it. All of this involves helping people commit sins, which is prohibited.

There is no compulsion for man to accept truth. But it is certainly a shame upon the human intellect when man is not even interested in finding out what the truth is. Islam teaches that God has given us the FACULTY OF REASON and therefore expects man to reason things out objectively and systematically for ourselves - to reflect and to question and to reflect.
Nobody should press you to make a hasty decision to accept the teachings of Islam, for Islam teaches that man should be given the freedom to choose. Even when a man is faced with the truth, there is no compulsion upon man to embrace it.
But before you begin to form an opinion about Islam, ask yourself, whether your existing knowledge of Islam is thorough enough. Ask yourself whether that knowledge has been obtained through non-muslim third party sources who themselves have probably been exposed to only random glimpses of Islamic writings and have yet to reason on Islam objectively and systematically themselves.
