Do you smoke? Do you like when people smoke around you? I don’t smoke. I hate it when people smoke around me. SubhanAllah, I so hate it. If this hate is taken and being transformed into food, there will be no more hunger in the whole planet. That is how much I hate it. 😈
In Indonesia, cigarettes advertisement can only be aired on TV in the night, but everywhere in the street, banners of cigarettes are everywhere 24/7. I have the pictures, but I have to mosaic the brand, so it’s useless 😳 Kids are doing cigarettes everywhere. Smoking room and non-smoking room separation is nerve-wrecking because mostly smoking rooms are in the best spots of any restaurants, better views 😯
But I think my country is step by step trying to forbid smoking. The Association of Indonesian Islamic Scholars has given haram category on smoking for children, teenagers, pregnant women, and public places. That’s a progress. But seriously I want the punishment to be clear for people who break that regulation, because now, not all of the people suit the criteria follow it.
The most ironic thing you will ever see in my country is, in every cigarette pack, there will be this warning :
It says : Smoking can cause cancer, heart attack, impotence, pregnancy and fetus disorders. Scary, right? Still many people choose not to read the warning and keep smoking like Hogwarts train. Ironic.
And I do believe smoking is haram. Lots of international scholars decide it. So yes, as muslims, we should not smoke. Why am I writing this? I am so angry. That’s why. 😈 I will make list of facts on why smoking is haram, biiznillahi taala. 😀
