View Full Version : Was going to the mosque and smelt....

05-16-2011, 04:16 AM
So I was on my way to Isha prayer about 2 hours ago. I left my house and headed down the elevator of my building. As I opened one of the building doors it was filled with smell of Marijuana. And it was really strong because it was packed with smoke and I figured someone recently smoked there and left. My question is does my prayer still count? My intention was to go and pray in Jamaat, which I did. I am confused though that I had smelled marijuana on my way there.

This also happened once during Ramadhan, I was fasting and some guy opened his car door and he was apparently smoking with all his windows and doors closed. When he opened the door all the smell just came inside my nose. Was my fast accepted?

Assalamu Alaikum brother,

To get high from second hand smoke you would have to spend very a long time sniffing.
Now if one had intention of hanging around to sniff to see the effects, the intent alone would more than Batil Wudu.
Any form of intoxication would Batil one's Salat and one would have to wait until clear headed.
Different Mathab place periods of time that one's Salat is invalidated for.
No smell no matter how bad or good invalidates wudu or fasting.

If you didnt get high, I dont see how ur prayer would be effected.

Its not ur fault that u passed thru smoke, everything is according to intention.
