Explore the concept of ‘haram’ in Islam, which covers prohibitions against harmful acts and substances, including vaping, and understand the reasoning behind these rules.
Which is one haram?
Prohibitions: In Islam, everything considered harmful either to the body, mind, soul or society is prohibited (haram), while whatever is beneficial is permissible (halal). Islam prohibits Muslims from consuming pork, alcohol or mind-altering drugs.
Is it allowed to VAPE in Islam?
Vaping appears to be considered haram (forbidden by Islamic law) by most Islamic scholars. Even though the UK’s Office for Health Improvements and Disparities (formerly Public Health England) says vaping is ‘at least 95% less harmful than smoking’, it is considered haram because vaping is not entirely risk-free.
