  1. This plant has been around since before humans. If it were really prohibited, it would be clear.

    As for evidence, research conveys that cannabis doesn't increase any risk to cancers or heart diseases. There are zero harms from this plant.

    Intoxicants need to be toxic, by definition. This position has no precedence in Islamic rulings, despite the plant being freely smoked by people before and during Islamic rule in Asia.

    Shabir Ally is a great scholar but he's talking from his will, not his mind or reason, or Islam at that.

  2. It would be much appreciated if Dr shabir could be more specific on this topic as I do believe many learnt people just skim past such subject because it is how the country views the subject matter as well as the association it has with other substances. Alcohol indeed is used as a disinfectant widely in hospitals. I say this because you said that it has not other purpose early in the video. Never the less, I am sure this is known but because it is such a big modern topic, it would be good to detail things and also talk about pro's and cons otherwise it will not be convincing for many of your viewers as I have already seen some comments. Never the less, I appreciate the video. Thank you

  3. another conversation about cannabis turned to wine and how getting intoxicated regardless of the source type or effect is Haram. How about growing cannabis as a Muslim or in Muslim countries for hemp/cash crop?, selling it as medical product and making it legal for medical use. how about prescribing it to others if you're a doctor? which part of the plant is Haram? what about using CBD recreationally? is it ok to carry it around? If a doctor prescribed me THC for a medical condition, can I pray while under the influence of the it? Do we need a member of the Muslim society to scientifically test it and judge it or is it already forgone that "Cannabis is harmful". Is Insomnia, loss of appetite, ADHD, stress, anxiety, depression, and the likes considered health issues in Islam? conditions that can be dealt with using cannabis? or should we only resolve to prayer and Dua and reading Qura'an, (activities that bring us closer to Allah) instead? Should we as Muslims make sure to put a lock and key on our brains at all time to protect them from any chemical or organic substance that can alter the state of mind? Based on what did you conclude that we don't "need it" as humans, as Muslims? How about investing in Cannabis companies or buying their stocks? How about married couples using it for bedtime as an alternative to Viagra or other supplements? what if new benefits to cannabinoids were to be discovered. Do the benefits ever outweigh the harms when it comes to marijuana?

  4. it helps my thinking it greatly. i can focus much easy for much long . it helps my depression ohh how much does it help it amazing. all the list of things he named are the reasons i would claim i need it as a med i am making this comment because i need help in this way if i smoke i feel bad like i sin if i dont then i get very depressed even drink and get anger and hate in my heart. i work much hard and better and have sharper mind by far with it.

  5. I think the recreational use of cannabis is bad for one's health. Nevertheless, the plant does have some substances in it which are beneficial and can be used in medicines to treat various diseases. Everything created by God is good. The plant is not evil. The abuse of the plant is evil.

  6. I'm young male. I'm Muslim, but I don't look Muslim, I don't have long beard (I clean shave or keep a bit stubble), I also wear western clothes (e.g., sneakers, t shirt, button shirt. Long loose pants, jackets, hoodies, jumpers, etc.. I don't speak Arabic, but I have memorised half of the Quran in Arabic. I pray about twice a day. However, I smoke cigarettes and I also smoke a lot of cannabis – cannabis feels wonderful.

  7. I use it as a topical pain reliever. And I take cbd oil, which does not affect my mind. It helps with my pain and uplifts my mood a bit, but it never changes my ability to respond or think straight. I’d rather use medicinal cannabis than the harmful chemical medication doctors offer ya.

  8. I smoke cannabis occasionally, I also follow and respect Dr. Shabir Ally's arguments but here I didn't find the argument quite compelling. What about people, who smoke it occasionally and responsibiliy. I live in the West, I don't do drugs or drink. However, sometimes to relax myself and have a good time with my friends I smoke and we do not go for driving. It helps me alot in my anxeity, work-related stress. To say that we must abide by our religion and that cannabis also falls under the same category as Alcohal seems to be pushing it. I hope Dr. Shabbir can produce more valid argument, as he is the one I really follow, thanks 🙂

  9. Cannabis is only harmful to adults when abused by smoking it. Smoking anything is not good for you, but cannabis can be used in foods, oils and vapor which often are more effective than smoking. It does not cause increased risk of mental disorders when taken by adults with developed brains. It should only be used by children/teens/young adults with a medical need for it, under a doctors supervision.
    Cannabis does not lead to loss of control like alcohol does. Alcohol reduces ones inhibitions and causes them to do things they normally would not do sober, cannabis has no such effect. The closest effect cannabis has to this, is increased intake of food.
    I myself am a Christian, I have not read the Koran in its entirety, but I do know that the Bible speaks very favorably in regards to Cannabis. Kaneh Bosom was the key ingredient in the Holy Anointing Oil that Jesus used to help heal the sick. They did not smoke cannabis in biblical stories, but they consumed very large amounts of it orally and topically, with nothing but beneficial effects.

  10. There isn’t any Fatwaa, gonna come from (Dollars Scholars) in the west they just good at singing sugar lines,,, just to create blind followers. May Haqq Allah, destroy these acts inside Ummat…
