Drugs and the Shariah


Brothers and sisters, the Shariah guides to every good deed and forbids every evil deed.


Hashish is a kind of drugs; it is produced from the hemp. Hashish is forbidden in Islam; Imam Az-Zahaby in his book, Al-Kabaer (the grave sins), says: “Hashish, which is made of hemp leaf, is forbidden like the wine; who smokes hashish would be as punished as the one who drinks wine. Hashish is harmer than wine because it ruins both mind and mood and makes the man effeminates and does not care for the chastity of his women. On the other hand, wine is harmer than hashish because it leads to quarrel and dispute; both wine and hashish prevent remembering Allah and performing prayer … It is said that hashish is impure like wine, and this is true … Anyway it is included in what Allah and His messenger had prohibited, and it is included in the prophet’s, peace be upon him, saying: “All intoxicants are forbidden.”

Drug tablets

These tablets are very harmful, because they are made purposely for evil known causes. Moreover they contain great amount of harmful substances including a substance which is said that it is a mix of alcohol, anesthetic and opium. The following are some of the harms of this substance:

1. It is harmful and intoxicant; we have been prohibited, in the Hadeeth that is narrated by Ahmed and Abu Dawud, from having any harmful or intoxicant substance.

2. Experiments had found that having these tablets hurt the brain and, in some cases, cause dementia. Moreover, they develop unnatural secretions cause vomiting, dizziness and accelerate heart beats.

3. Addicting these tablets causes spleen purulence that gets worse by time till the point of no return. The spleen becomes totally damaged and inters the phase of swell and rot besides secreting strange substances weaken the strength gradually to ultimately kill the addict. What would be his excuse when he meets Allah almighty Who prohibited every harmful thing, warned him and forbade taking one’s own life?

4. The addict person ruins his family and dignity by his own hand. Moreover he loses his status in the Muslim community.

5. He becomes an evil model for whoever imitates him. And he would be required to bear the burden like that of one who followed his evil practices without theirs is diminished in any respect.

6. This kind of people opens the gates of evil and invites the others to it. Invitation to evil deeds is not by words only; rather it is by actions also. Whoever addicts drugs and incites the others (by his actions) to do the same, would have the burden like that of who followed his evil deed (without theirs is diminished in any respect) for knowing the truth and rejecting it.

7. Drug tablets’ harm is not confined to who takes it; rather it affects his family, children and companions because of socializing.

8. Experiments had found that these tablets destroy the body, because taking such tablets causes the spread of diseases as we have mentioned earlier.

9. These tablets cause neurological convulsions and paralyses of extremities as a result of blood clotting which causes circularity disorder. These things lead to weakness and heart attacks affects rest and hardens life.

10. These tablets cause blur like the blur that the drunken person feel it, however this kind of blur is more dangerous and chronic; it makes the person see mixed and doubled pictures. Moreover, he may see the colors differently.

11. Having drugs develop fear in the heart of the addict; his fear accompanies him all the time. He fears the evil end and the diseases in addition to other fears prevent him from sleeping and foresight. It lowers his spirit, takes from him the factors of manhood. Therefore he abandons all virtues, gains all vices and become of the worst of (moving) living creatures with Allah; the deaf and the dumb, who understand not.

O believer brothers, fear Allah by not hurting yourselves and protecting it from the punishment as a result of passing prohibited pleasure. Take care of these killer intoxicants and take lessons of their uncountable victims who had gone with their deeds; Allah almighty reproached who made his whims his god; He almighty said: “Have you seen he who has taken as his god his [own] desire, and Allah has sent him astray due to knowledge and has set a seal upon his hearing and his heart and put over his vision a veil? So who will guide him after Allah? Then will you not be reminded?” [Al-Jathiya 45:23]

{أَفَرَأَيْتَ مَنِ اتَّخَذَ إِلَـٰهَهُ هَوَاهُ وَأَضَلَّهُ اللَّـهُ عَلَىٰ عِلْمٍ وَخَتَمَ عَلَىٰ سَمْعِهِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَجَعَلَ عَلَىٰ بَصَرِهِ غِشَاوَةً فَمَن يَهْدِيهِ مِن بَعْدِ اللَّـهِ ۚ أَفَلَا تَذَكَّرُونَ}[الجاثية: 23]

Transliteration: 'Afara'ayta Mani Attakhadha 'Ilahahu Hawāhu Wa 'Ađallahu Allāhu `Alá `Ilmin Wa Khatama `Alá Sam`ihi Wa Qalbihi Wa Ja`ala `Alá Başarihi Ghishāwatan Faman Yahdīhi Min Ba`di Allāhi 'Afalā Tadhakkarūna

O my God, return those who got strayed from the right path to it again, and protect us all, by your mercy, from the torment of the hellfire. O Allah, endear the Faith to us and beautify it in our hearts, make disbelief, wickedness and disobedience hateful to us, and make us among the rightly guided. Amen.

Dear brother, having drugs is a crime involving moral turpitude and leads to prison.
