Project cigarette: Smoking is haraam, growing tobacco is haraam, and dealing in it is haraam

In the name of Allah , the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.

From Fataawaa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, 13/31

Smoking is haraam, growing tobacco is haraam, and dealing in it is haraam,

because of the great harm which it causes. It was narrated in the hadeeth;
“There should be no causing harm or reciprocating harm. Smoking is also one of al-khabaa’ith [evil things].

Allaah described the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) as (interpretation of the meaning): “… he allows them as lawful al-Tayyibaat [all good and lawful things] and prohibits them as unlawful al-Khabaa’ith [all evil and unlawful things]…”
[al-A’raaf 7:157]

And Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“They ask you what is lawful for them. Say: ‘Lawful unto you are al-tayyibaat…”
[al-Maa’idah 5:4]
