an honest question from a non muslim friend ..
" adakah merokok itu haram?'
well, if it's up to me.. i would say it's haram
even kelantan chief minister said that merokok itu haram...
there is a poster somewhere in the hospital..
a petition signed by all physician , cardiologist , consultant - all on term agreeing that smoking is HARAM in Islam..
coz it's hazardous , and it kills u.. and people around u..
a true story at my clinic today...
a lady came to see me for a pre operative assessement.
she's planned for some ENT operation next month.
as she sat on the chair at my desk,
i took a glance at her chest x ray ,
then i asked her... " mak cik , husband makcik perokok ke.. "
and she replied .." he just died 2 months ago due to lung cancer "
yes , if ur spouse is a chronic smoker..
u are likely to have the same complication..
the smoke from his cigaratte... most of them inhaled by people around them..
so , the wives are the usual victim of the situation..
yes i would say merokok is haram.
those who want to get married ,
dont marry a perokok..
if u r looking for a son in law...
make sure he doesnt smoke
or daugther will pay the price in the future...
