Allah says in Quran say in Surah Al-Baqarah [2:195] "Spend your wealth in the Way of Allah and do not cast yourselves into ruin with your own hands. Do all things gracefully, for Allah loves those who do all things with excellence”

In addition keep that in that mind that according to World Health Organization Tobacco kills nearly six million people each year.

Certainly, Cigarettes were not present during the lifetime of the Prophet Muhammed (S.A.W.), however rulings AND GUIDELINES with regards to similar substances are present in the two Revelations: the Qur’aan and the authentic Sunnah.(hadith)

As a rule, the Qur’aan forbids every thing that is evil. As Allah says:

“”He (the Prophet Muhammed) allows them all that is good and lawful, and prohibits them as unlawful all that is evil.”” {Surah al-Ar’’af (7): 157}

Evil and sin manifests itself in things, deeds, beliefs, persons, foods, drinks, etc. So, If it is proved that smoking is among the evil, this is in itself enough for the Believers to realize that smoking is forbidden, in the light of the above stated verse of Soorah al-Ar’’af.

  1. Smoking is a Killer:

It causes diseases like lung cancer, tuberculosis and heart diseases (just to mention a few). And we know that Allah forbids us from killing ourselves.

As He says: “”And do not kill yourselves. Surely, Allah is Most Merciful to you. And whoever commits that through aggression and injustice, We shall cast him into the Fire and that is easy for Allah”” {Surah an-Nisaa’’ (4): 29}

Allah also says:

“”And do not throw yourselves into destruction.”” {Surah al-Baqarah (2):195

  1. Smoking burns(waste) wealth:

And Allah says: “”But spend not wastefully (your wealth) in the manner of a spendthrift. Verily spendthrifts are brothers of the devils.” {Surah al-Israa’’ (17) 26-27}

Do we not see the Muslims who smoke? Those who hold on to every cent , only to burn all of it in cigerettes! ……. Subhaan Allaah, along with their health, waste on top of waste. (Health and money.) 6. Smoking makes the smoker and surrounding smell bad:

Everything that a smoker comes in contact with smell of cigarettes; His car, clothes, home, etc. Therefore, when a smoker prays in congregation he hurts his fellow humans with his smell as well as the angels,

as the Messenger of Allaah said:

“”Whoever has eaten from such greens as garlic, onions or leek should keep away from our mosque. Truly, the angels are harmed by what harms the offspring of Aadam.””Saheeh al-Bukhari

The above points constitute clear evidence that smoking is evil, and is therefore Haraam (unlawful). If a Muslim is under any kind of stress, then he must turn to Allaah for help. Even medical science has rejected outright, the myth that smoking calms the nerves. What we know for sure, is that the rememberence of Allaah is healing, as Allaah says:

“”Verily in the remembrance of Allaah do hearts find tranquility.”” {Soorah ar-Raad (13):28}

So when the urge for smoking arises, resort to the Qur’aan and strive to comply with Allaah’’s commandments.

“”Those who strive hard in Our Cause, We will surely guide them to Our Paths.”” {Soorah al-Ankabut (29):69 so try to leave selling or smoking it...

hope this satisfies your question aameen....:) leave me with a feedback if it helps...:)
