Vaping is ‘haram’ for Muslims, declares fatwa council

Using electronic cigarettes, also known as Vape, is now haram for Muslims, the National Fatwa Council has decreed, Utusan Malaysia reported today. The council’s chairman Professor Emeritus Tan

Sri Dr Abd Shukor Husin said the decision was based on laws that were used against shisha, also known as water pipes or hookahs.

“We have discussed the issue of cigarettes and shisha and we can equate it with the Vape. Firstly, it is dangerous, second, it is wasteful and third, it is detrimental to health. So when the effects are the same, we have declared it as haram,” he was quoted as saying.


PS. On a personal note the Vaping is going well – no cigs smoked!

    I guess this means you’ll never post any Vape Girls in burkas.

    Good about the haram decision. Get those chopper boys smoking real coffin nails so they can transit more rapidly to Allahville in the sky.

    (Cough, cough.)

    Vaping seems to cause rather large breasts as a side effect based on my studies of this blog. Be careful Blaze!

    If I can quit ciggies (but not staring at large orbs) then any human can do it. Stick to it

    Not really a big problem as I see it for Muslims. After all they still are allowed rape, honour killings, cutting off hands, throwing suspected homosexual off high building and/or stoning them along with regularly beating their wife/wives. What more can one ask for?

      A good fucking smoke.
      Six weeks cold turkey this Thursday.
      I loved smoking but this time I love stiffing the government more.
      And I keep finding smokes I’d stashed in hiding place all around my work.
      It’s a bridge to cross every day.

        Way to go Dancer. I quit eons ago, but I gave up coffee (ciggy trigger) and going to bars, they allowed smoking back then. Count the abstinence days, the more you accrue, the more reluctant you become to give in. Now I gotta deal with the booze problem —
