Salamun `Alaykum

The following question was kindly answered by Maulana Rizvi.

QUESTION:

With regards to caanabis resin and other such natural stimulants, are
they halal to smoke? If not what is the rationale? Are there any specific
clear sayings prohibiting it, or is it a prohibition by analogy to the
intoxication of alcohol? 

Please answer as per Ayatollah Ruhani.


ANSWER:

The question asks for the answer per Ayatullah Ruhani's opinions;
unfortunately, I do not have the second volume of his Minhajus Salihiyn
which contains the rules on food and drink.

I do not think, however, that the fatwas of mujtahidin would differ on this
issue. If caanabis rasin and other natural stimulants are kind of drugs used
to "get high" and intoxicated, then definitely they are haram for the same
reason that alcohol is haram. The only difference is that alcohol is also
najis whereas these non-liquid intoxicating agents are pak --- but both are
haram.
