Cannabis, marijuana, weed, bud whatever you call it is considered haram, by many, due to the fact it is seen as an intoxicant. However, I read an article that shows some benefits compared to risks https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/320984#What-are-the-health-risks-of-marijuana? and it seems like the positives outweight the negatives by a significant mark. It may be considered an intoxicant however it is nowhere near as bad as alcohol. Actually I am trying to find a single documented death by marijuana or even any severe cases and it is pretty hard. Someting that confused me more is on the question is marijuana haram a user stated why is caffeine halal. I checked this and it turns out to be true but caffeine has killed people and although it isnt like hundreds of thousands or something it is still a considerablke amount. If I am correct anything that is harmful in large amounts isnt allowed in small amounts or somethibng along the lines of this. Caffeine can also give you a buzz too.

What is the wisdom behind marijuana being haram? Why is it considered haram and substances that are more dangerous than it arent?


"That which is intoxicating in large amounts is Haram even if taken in only small amounts"

These drugs are not good for you because they may cause serious addiction ( may Allah SWT protect us from it ).

  • Each hadith report should have a source and authentification and this one is known and certainly quoted in one of the 9 most quoted sunni hadith sources I'd even assume it is in Sunan ibn Majah please search for the hadith in a hadith resource site like sunnah.com or elsewhere and add and share a link reference. Further mark your quotes as such. – Medi1Saif May 31 '20 at 6:44

  • Please add references that the addiction is a reason for the drugs being haram. – Kilise May 31 '20 at 10:02
  • @Medi1SaifMedi1Sif £ I never said that drugs are Haram because of addiction. I said that drugs are NOT GOOD FOR YOU BECAUSE THEY CAUSE ADDICTION! – TheMadHatter May 31 '20 at 11:14
