What is the Islamic law about smoking cigarette or hookah?
First of all, I wish to convey my greetings to His Eminence, Ayatollah Hadavi Tehrani – may Allah grant him long life. Please, let me know your opinion about smoking cigarette and hookah. Why do some religious authorities like Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi forbid it in an absolute way?


Ayatollah Mahdi Hadavi Tehrani's opinion regarding the foregoing question is as under: "Smoking tobacco (cigarettes and hookah) is absolutely haram because it is injurious to health."
