SEPANG: The National Fatwa Council has declared the use of electronic cigarettes as “haram” for Muslims.
Council chairman Tan Sri Dr Abdul Shukor Husin said that based on scientific studies and findings the council had found that the vaping trend would not bring benefit to users.
“The council finds that consuming something that is harmful, whether direct or indirectly, purposely or not, could lead to harm or death; so this will not be allowed,” he told a press conference on Monday night.
Abdul Shukor, who chaired the meeting, noted that vaping could be considered as something that was distasteful (khabiith) in Islam and could be harmful to the users.
