Bismillah ar-Rahman ar-Raheem. It is commonly accepted by many people nowadays that marijuana is a “safe drug” and that it is not harmful at all. But a recent study seems to show that marijuana actually is, in fact, harmful…to the brain, even for people who don’t use it very often but just recreationally. Intoxicants are among the things that Allah, subhana wa ta’ala, forbade in the Qur’an. In Arabic linguistics, the word that translates as “intoxicants” means anything that clouds your motor ability but more importantly your judgment. Basically, it is anything that gets you drunk or high. This is yet another example of how Allah knows His creation infinitely better than the creation knows itself. Allah knows way better than we will ever know. We plan, but Allah plans better for He is the Best of a Planners. Alhamdulilah!
