Can I smoke a shisha pen? It’s similar to argeeleh or the hookah


Nowadays a new trend is out for this the shisha pen, are we allowed to do this? I have read that it has no tar or tobacco and only lasts for 500 puffs. Please would you kindly enlighten on this.


If this smoking device contains any substances which might cloud one’s judgment (e.g. marijuana or hashish) then it is not permissible to use it. Anything that in its big quantity intoxicates, its small amount is also forbidden, whether it is hashish or shisha. So, all intoxicating substances are haraam to deal with them in anyway form or shape, whether one inhales it, chews it, sells it etc.

If it is more akin to smoking cigarettes, then one needs to check the ruling of their Marja’ in relation to smoking cigarettes.
