Why Does Islam Allow Cigarette Smoking But Condemn Alcohol? by mayor1814: 1:08am On Nov 07, 2023
I really want to know more about this. I travelled to Kano, Katsina and Kaduna recently and I was very cautious because I've been told that drinking alcohol is not allowed in the northern part of the country except in southern dominated part of sabon gari but to my shock and surprise I saw people, I mean hausa men (mallams) smoking in different parts and shops in the city centre. In fact in Katsina, almost every corner, smoking is taking place.



I was curious I asked someone, the person told me in Islam cigarette is allowed but alcohol is not allowed. That got me confused that is why I Wana ask Muslims in the house the true picture of the situation, the reason why Islam condemns alcohol but allows cigarette smoking.

This is simple.

There was alcohol when Muhammad was alive, but cigarette had not been produced and systemic effects and hazards not known

That is why I'm asking for clarifications. Coz in the city centres men were smoking freely but alcohol is banned. So I'm not cleared I wanna know more.

Well, Cigarettes are made from tobacco, and tobacco has been smoked long before Muhammad was born.

Though dried Tobacco leaves were smoked many centuries BC in the North and Southern American world, it was spread to Europe and many places by the European Explorers, first Christopher Columbus.
Columbus had encounter with the native Americans in 1492, more than eight and half centuries after Prophet Mohammed.

Mohamed was not in Europe.

Mohamed was not in Europe.
And he was in South or North America right?

You said "There was alcohol when Muhammad was alive", which kind of "alcohol' was around his vicinity and which did he talk about?
Tobacco, hashish and other smoking leafs were all around before Mohammed was born.
But Okay.

Alcoholic drink is any drink that contains ethanol as a result of fermentation. Mohammed would obviously have talked against the alcoholic drink existing in his time and vicinity, seeing the effects on human.

There was never a record of Tobacco leaves outside the American world pre Columbus. If you have the evidence, please I would like you to provide it sir

The "alcohol" that Mohamed was talking about was specified.
Traditions of Muhammad indicated that khamr may be made from two plants, the grapevine and the date palm.
