If I smoke before Ramadan, but not during Ramadan, does it affect my fasts? Analogous to how drinking alcohol means your fasts or salaahs will not be accepted for forty days.

  • Asak...going on a tangent plz also research on why smoking is considered makruh if not totally Haraam by a majority of the Ulema today. May Allah guide us all.

No, it won't affect your fasts as long as you're NOT smoking while you're fasting.

PS: Many brothers and sisters consider Ramadan as a perfect opportunity for quitting. Please at least give a try.

    as long as you are smoking while fasting --- probably, you wanted to say "not smoking"

I think you would just have to stop smoking a couple months before ramadan like how it says your fasts wont be accepted if you have alcohol in your system

  • Please share a reference to corroborate your view.
