Smoking in Ramadaan

In The name of Allah,The Most Merciful,The Most gracious

Smoking in Ramadaan

I know that smoking has been forbidden by some scholars. however, my question is what is the reason smoking is prohibited during fasting. when the person smokes, he is not entering a liquid or a solid through his mouth. I have asked this for so many people and their only answer was that it is haram. please advise me what to do.

Praise be to Allaah.

Smoking is haraam and there is no doubt that it is forbidden.

With regard to the reason why it breaks the fast, that is because the smoke contains particles that reach the stomach.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen was asked about the fasting person smelling perfume and he said:

It is permissible to use it during the day in Ramadaan and to smell it, except for bukhoor (incense), because incense contains particles that can reach the stomach, and that is smoke.

Fataawa Islamiyyah, 2/128.

Cigarette smoke is like incense in that they both contain particles, but they differ with regard to the basic ruling:

incense is halaal and good, and smoking is haraam and bad. 

Prophet Muhammad SAW Said:

“A person will not be able to move on the Day of Judgment until he is asked about … his body as to what he engaged it in.”

Smoking also goes against the saying of the Prophet SAWS:

“Your body has a right on you.”

Allah said:

“O ye who believe! Intoxicants and Gambling, (Dedication of) stones, And (divination by) arrows, Are an Abomination Of Satan’s handiwork; Eschew such (abomination), That ye may prosper.”[Al-Qur’an 5:90]


And Allaah knows best.

This is the perfect way of Getting Islamic knowledge for human being living on earth. And I praise Allah, whoever reads this article shall follow the genuine path and shall face very easy on the judgement day, Ameen!!!!


This is what the misconception of Arab scholars are. They categorize it as intoxication but cigarette is not intoxication. What is Islamic definition of intoxication?… Smoking is an addiction like tea and coffee but it brings laziness that why Islamic Scholars have written it as makrooh (undesired) (Fatwa: 254/254=M)


There is 2 simple questions:
A chicken is halaal but it can be haraam also
the questions are :
When a chicken becames haraam ?
Why it bcames haraam ?
If you answer to both questions you will understand why smoking is haraam
