THE issue of vaping has been under the spotlight recently. It started with the Health Ministry announcing its intention to ban the use of vaping products. It was then followed by raids on several premises which were selling vape products. Thereafter, several states began to impose vaping “bans”, either on the trade of vape products or the act of vaping itself.
It has been reported that some of these states made their decisions based on a fatwa issued by the National Fatwa Council which declared that vaping is “haram” for Muslims.
