A Closer Look

What is Haram?

There are many practices that are considered haram, or forbidden, in Islam. Some of these practices include gambling, drinking alcohol, eating pork, and engaging in premarital sex. These prohibitions are based on the teachings of the Quran and Hadith, and are designed to help Muslims lead moral and upright lives.

While some of these prohibitions may seem severe, they are all based on the belief that Allah is the only one who knows what is best for us, and that by following His laws, we can achieve true happiness in this life and the hereafter.

Is Shisha Haram?

Yes, shisha is haram as it harms your body. The tobacco in shisha contains nicotine, which is addictive and can lead to health problems such as cancer. In addition, the charcoal used to heat the tobacco produces harmful chemicals that are also damaging to your health. Smoking is considered haram, or is often discouraged by scholars around the world. Therefore, it is best to avoid shisha altogether.
