and 'ALHAMDULILAH' after smoking ?
If you see cigarette to b Mercy from Allah, why do u turn it off with your shoes?
If you see cigarette normal, then why do you not smoke it in front of your parents/elders ?
If you see cigarette so much fun, then why do you not teach your kids how to use it ?
Smoking has become familiar in our youths – be it male or female. Our young generations feel proud in smoking and thinks it adds another feather to their style.
But smoking has various side-effects. It not only terminates your body but it also affects your social life too. It is like throwing yourself into destruction and God Almighty prohibits indulging in these kinds of activities in the Glorious Quran, which says:“And do not throw yourself unto destruction” [Surah Baqarah (2):195.]
There are various diseases caused by smoking like: Emphysema, Bronchitis, Chronic, instructive Pulmonary,Coronary artery, Peripheral artery disease, Colo rectal cancer,Liver cancer,Prostate cancer, Erectile dysfunction in men, Stomach cancer, Bladder and kidney cancer, Abdominal aortic aneurysm, Acute myelitis leukemia, Cataracts, Cervical cancer, Kidney cancer, Pancreatic cancer, Periodontists, Pneumonia, Cancers of the larynx and mouth, Lung cancer.

Smoking also affects your surroundings ..

It even hurts the family members because of the diseases and the consequences you face of smoking. Also it Blackens your lips , gums your finger tips, lips, stomach. Sexual power gets suppress. Reduces defense of your body.
Islam does not give permission to Harm Others..
In Islam one cannot Harm your Neighbor and other people, when we expel smoke out it causes more harm to others. Passive smoking is more danger than active smoking. Hence it is also ban to smoke on public places. As per the research Wife of the Chain Smokers have more chances of Lung Cancer.
The smoker doesn’t even realize the smell of smoking around him. There will be smell of smoking around him, on his hair, clothes, bed on which he sleep, his room and other things which he usually use. And the smell last longer even after quitting.
Prevention is better than cure..
The best way to avoid developing these conditions and diseases is to stop smoking. You can enjoy immediate benefits by stopping smoking right now. You can see various developments in your body and hence you will be fit – physical and mental too.

Smoking is nothing but “Burning of Money” and wastage of money is not allowed in Islam.
Allah says in Glorious Quraan: And do not throw yourself unto destruction” [Surah Baqarah (2):195.]
On this verse of the Glorious Quraan there are more than 400 Fatawas including the Scholars of Saudi Arabia that Smoking and All types of Tobacco whether its a Bidi, Hukka etc. is Haraam its Prohibited in Islam.
Also our Beloved Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: A man cannot move his legs on the day of Judgement until he clear 5 Questions out of which is, from where you earn the money ( legally or illegally) and where you have spend the Money.
On the day of Judgment we cannot say to our Creator Allah that I smoke out of your given money.
Also smoking is against the purpose of fasting including Taqwaa.
Allah says: O you who believe! Observing As-Sawm (the fasting) is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become Al-Muttaqoon (pious)
[Surah Al-Baqarah 2:183]
If a person is Abstain from Tobacco and other Bad Things from Suhoor till Iftaar it will be very easy for him to leave them.
Smoking breaks the fast, and it cannot be used as an excuse not to fast. How can a sin be taken as an excuse?!
Brothers this is the best time to change our self and to change the world. We are running towards the death, we dont know when we will Die. Lets repent to our Lord and ask him for forgiveness and lets make a Niyat (Intention) that we will leave smoking and other bad things and we will speak against them as it’s against the commandment of our Creator ALLAH.
Allah says: You are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right,
forbidding what is wrong and believing in Allah.
