As there are no direct verses in the Qur'an about smoking, I asked some people about "why is marijuana haram?" In reply, the following hadith was quoted to me:
"That which intoxicates in large quantities is prohibited in small quantities." (Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, and others, with a sound chain of narrators)
So my question is, given that if someone drinks excessive of water than he/she risks death due to water intoxication, does this necessarily mean that water is also prohibited in small amounts?
Obviously this is absurd on the surface, because water isn't (and probably shouldn't) be haram, but how can this hadith be reconciled with the fact that water intoxication exists?
