Hamas, what is your decision based on ? On what sort of “science” ? This kind of “science” can be termed “TREIF” (non-Kosher) science in Hebrew and “HARAM” (non-Halal) science in Arabic. Indeed, “there is a saying by the Prophet which reads: “Seek science [good sound science, of course](*) from the cradle to the grave”.

(*) not Treif/Haram science which is always politicized and aims at justifying smoking bans in the name of so-called quite artificial institutions (such as the Framework Convention for Tobacco Control (FCTC), Globalink, WHO (World Health Organization) Tobacco-Free Initiative, etc. and their unavoidable world “top” tobacco “experts”.

"While Judaism is the religion of commandments and laws, and Christianity that of compassion and love, Islam has put strong emphasis on reason and science. Quran is a permanent invitation to meditate upon the laws of nature. Furthermore, there is a saying by the Prophet himself which reads: “Seek science from the cradle to the grave” (in Arabic: Utlubu-l-ilm min al-mahd ila-l-lahd)".
Remember that if smoking is a certainly a hazardous behaviour, it also remains a personal choice. Muslim women and Palestinian women in particular have smoked the narghile for centuries. How come this became a problem since year 2002 ?
