Why You Must Quit Smoking??


Maybe i'm not the best person to talk bout this..or maybe i'm not the best person to advice you..or maybe i'm not the best person to force you to stop 'it'...

But i'm the best person who should speak for my own right..i have the right to leave happily..and i have the right to prevent myself from diseases..and i have the right to advice 'you' when i think you're doing 'wrong'..

"By (the Token of) Time (through the ages), Verily Man is in loss, Except such as have Faith, and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of Truth, and of Patience and Constancy."
[Surah al-'Asr]

Okay, back to the point. Do you know why you (if you're a smoker) SHOULD stop smoking? I give you some points..

  • maybe i'm not good in fiqh, but there's only 2 opinions in fiqh that i hear up till now, that is - smoking is either HARAM or MAKRUH. According to the verse below..i take it as HARAM. And you? (just like Dr Muhd Asri Zainul Abidin said: it's okay if we're not agree with each other, but we must agree that whatever stated in Quran or Sunnah is the best!)
“...he [the Prophet] commands them what is just, and forbids them what is evil; he allows them as lawful what is good, and prohibits them from what is bad..."
[al-A'raf: 157]

  • If you're a medic student, i'm sure you know the dangers of tobacco use very well. What? Actually tobacco use may increase the risk of getting 40 serious diseases e.g lung cancer, heart diseases, stroke etc up to 10 or 20 times compared to non-smoking person. It may cause you to suffer very much especially when you start to get peptic ulcer, constipation and even loss of memory! Hmm..The Prophet SAW said: "Knowledge without works is like a tree without fruit." You know it causes harm to yourself!! Work it! (what?) Do prevent yourself from those harms! Do you agree if i assume smoking equals to killing one's self silently?
"And spend of our substance In the cause of Allah, And make not your own hands Contribute to (your) destruction; But do good; For Allah loveth those Who do good."
  • Not just the smoker's, but also a silent killer of people around him/her. Sincerely, i'm telling you - i hate smokers very much (just when they smoke la) because of THIS! For me, if you don't mind about your own life, mind about others'.
  • Other than that, physically smokers look unhealthy as they really are. They appear thin and weak. There is impaired in smell and taste sense. Also, for male, be careful with...impotence!(also infertility for females).. So many others illness produced by tobacco use..deafness, impaired vision, mouth or gum infections and so and so...
"A strong devout Muslim is better and more beloved by Allah than the weak devout Muslim in every good deed."
[narrated by Muslim] why do you choose to be weak? What is more than Allah's love?? If you quit smoking, you'll have more time in your life to perform ibadah, trust me..because 50% of smokers died every year because of the diseases due to tobacco use, accelerated death, huh?

"But Allah wronged them not: nay, they wronged their own souls."

And more, some doctors said that smokers are actually having mental problems...they are mental patients..because most of them smoke when they are in stress, they can't overcome their stress well except by smoking..hmm hmm hmm..dear friends, bear in your mind that we as Muslims always have Allah SWT by our side..

I know its not easy to stop smoking. But trust yourself and Allah's help..insyaAllah kheir.
