Shisha declared haram (forbidden) for Muslims

Yesterday, the Fatwa (Edicts) Committee of the National Council for Islamic Affairs declared that shisha or waterpipe smoking is 'haram' (forbidden) for Muslims.

Committee chairman Tan Sri Dr Abdul Shukor Husin said Muslims were also prohibited from providing shisha-smoking services or any activity associated with shisha.

"Shisha is clearly harmful to health; it is a wasteful activity that is categorised as a bad or despicable thing that all Muslims should avoid," said Abdul Shukor.

Abdul Shukor explained that shisha would have a huge detrimental effect in terms of the health of the individual, national economic growth and shaping of the future generations.
