    Help! Very Confused About the Islamic Ruling On Cannabis & Psychedelic Use! (OP)


    Asalamualikum everyone, I am in need for some guidance and help on a topic which has thoroughly confused me. Before I go any further, here is some background about me: although I do not practice Islam in my everyday life as much as I like, I am a Muslim and so is everyone in my family. I am currently 20 years old and a student in University of Toronto, Canada.

    Now that I have gotten that out of the way, here is my question and argument. I have been using Cannabis for quite some time now and also started using psychedelics in the last few of months - in specific "psilocybin mushrooms", "lysergic acid diethylamide 25 (LSD-25)". Both psilocybin mushrooms (shrooms) and LSD are psychedelic or hallucinogenic substances. I am also trying to obtain “Dimethyltryptamine (DMT)” which is the most powerful psychedelic chemical known to man because my views on psychedelics and cannabis do not align with Islamic teachings and thus I am looking for answers and want to argue my case to someone with enough knowledge to help me.
    Currently my religious half and my logical/scientific half are in great conflict with each other and it is causing me too much discomfort and dissatisfaction with life in general. According to Islam, my lifestyle of this substance use is Haram and will lead to punishment in this world and the hereafter. But as a person, I am not simply strong enough to believe and practice something without it actually making sense. As a result I am stuck between what people called “The devil and the deep blue sea”. So, is anyone here knowledgeable enough on the topic to help me? When I mean help, I mean to talk to me and debate with me on this topic to come to a conclusion?

    I’d like to thank everyone in advance - Thankyou and Asalamualikum.

    walakum salaam mateenah

    After reading what you wrote - It's like I'm reading a Muslim looking to leave the deen.

    I'll debate you.

    Bro, I know more about cannabis than the herb itself does lol.

    Come, let us talk.

    So admittedly you're not practising the religion, and instead you are looking to "experiment" because its fun.

    Following the crowd much? Even if they lead you over the cliff?

    I've experimented a lot in my life with trips, DMT and cannabis - I fail to see the attraction now. There is nothing insightful about doing psychadelic drugs except for the following - you will mess up your mind.

    My experience with DMT was so many years ago that the memory is vague now. Smoked it in a pipe and bloody heck, it felt like I was about to die. When I opened my eyes, the sheer spectrum of colour noise was overwhelming and I saw vibrant shapes which were refractions of light my brain was trying to make sense out of.

    I wasn't actually seeing those things - but my mind was trying to show me those things which did not exist... I prefer sci fi movies now because its safer.

    The trip itself lasted about 15 minutes and afterwards I felt violated in some spiritual way - from that point on, I entered some sort of paranoia which was closeted and not talked about with anyone - in fact, I was talking to myself in my mind and realised I was having waswasa - satanic whispers.

    DMT as you know is known as the Dream Molecule - because it activates your Pineal Gland while you are awake - what you see is not real, but you will excuse it to have some sort of importance to your life because you're an idiot.

    Thank Allah I didn't attach any importance to my life with it. I was never a crowd follower - and when I did DMT - no one here knew what it was...You are following your peers - and you are conflicted because on one side is Islam - total submission to Allah.

    And on the other side is your nafs - total submission to your desires.

    There is NO WAY you can justify your usage of drugs in Islam - NONE.

    Islam is the most logical and scientific way forward for mankind. Have you never heard of Imam al Ghazali? he was known "The Proof of Islam" - logic, was his strongpoint.

    When it comes to science - it was Ibn Al Haythm who formulated the Scientific Method which is taught today - and he formulated that centuries ago.

    Your logic is non existent - you argue from a position of ignorance and emotion, because you want to pursue your drug culture whilst seeking to have your guilt absolved by us here... guess what, not happening.

    No one here will tell you - it's ok to take drugs. No one. This is Islam, we are Muslims... what are you?

    SO you are simply not strong enough to practice something like Islam?

    No offence bro, but Islam came to a people who were subjugated to the tyranny of the Qureish leaders - they often had no food to eat or shelter, or even the good will of their neighbour - but they held fast to Islam because Islam was their only hope...

    ...HOPE.

    Islam provides all the answers, not your trips, LSD and DMT - heck I've even done GHB back in the days.

    But if you want to make your life - leave your crowd and join the Muslims.

    Now... for the weed.

    What exactly do you want to know about the herb?

    I can tell you everything you want to know.

    Any kind of drug, be it hash, heroine, esctasy. Any drug is haram. None here will tell you it is OK to take drugs except those who don't know about the Quraan.

    And Allah knows best.

    Meaning of Shirk according to The Qur'an
    " Worshipping anyone or anything besides Allah " or " distributing anything exclusive to Allah, to anyone or anything else "

    Meaning of Tawheed according to The Qur'an
    Worshipping none but Allah. Affirming whatever is exclusive to Him, Him alone.

    Re: Help! Very Confused About the Islamic Ruling On Cannabis & Psychedelic Use!

    im not so sure anymore..

    some of the most dangerous people i know use drugs.

    everytime they turn up you know its not good news or glad tidings.

    but they are made use of.. are they not?

    haram holds a position of strength in todays world.

    i have no idea about tomorrow.

    although i could most definitely be wrong.

    ..does this constitute backbiting? because that would just be the iceing on the cake.

    i hope its not a confusing answer.

    everybody turns up for somebody.
    ...

    Several centuries ago, the Pope decreed that all Muslims had to convert to Catholicism or leave Italy. There was a huge outcry from the Muslim community, so the Pope offered a deal.He'd have a religious debate with the leader of the Muslim community. If the Muslims won, they could stay in Italy; and if the Pope won, they'd have to convert or leave. The Muslim people met and picked an aged and wise Mufti to represent them in the debate.However, as the Mufti spoke no Italian, and the Pope spoke no Arabic, they agreed that it would be a "silent" debate.On the chosen day the Pope and Mufti sat opposite each other.The Pope raised his hand and showed three fingers.The Mufti looked back and raised one finger.Next, the Pope waved his finger around his head.The Mufti pointed to the ground where he sat.The Pope brought out a communion wafer and a chalice of wine.The Mufti pulled out an apple.With that, the Pope stood up and declared himself beaten and said that the Moulana was too clever.The Muslims could stay in Italy.Later the cardinals met with the Pope and asked him what had happened.The Pope said, "First I held up three fingers to represent the Trinity."He responded by holding up a single finger to remind me there is still only one God!"Then, I waved my finger around my head to show him that God was all around us."He responded by pointing to the ground to show that God was also right here with us."I pulled out the wine and wafer to show that God absolves us of all our sins."He pulled out an apple to remind me of the original sin."He beat me at every move and I could not continue!"Meanwhile, the Muslim community gathered to ask the Mufti how he'd won."I haven't a clue," the Mufti said."First, he told me that we had three days to get out of Italy, so I gave him the finger."Then he tells me that the whole country would be cleared of Muslims and I told him that we were staying right here!""And then what?" asked a woman."Who knows?" said the Mufti. "He took out his lunch so I took out mine."

    Re: Help! Very Confused About the Islamic Ruling On Cannabis & Psychedelic Use!

    I respect and thank you for your replies, but the fact is Cannabis is non Toxic, i can see why most people associate recreational drugs with bad people as the fact they are illegal attracts criminals and makes it a gateway drug due to the fact it is illegal , nothing else..There are very few pot heads i ever met that dont drink and do other drugs, cannabis actually helps people get over much worst addictions and keeps many people away from real bad drugs like alcohol and heroin..
    Also its very not addictive, only very slight, much less than caffeine..Like drinking coffee every day, why would people choose to stop something they enjoy, its purely psychological and much less a physical addiction than even caffeine.
    And the health dangers are virtually non existent only when smoked with tobacco..Its impossible to overdose on Cannabis, no one in history has died from consuming Cannabis..

    "The Arabic word used for intoxicant is 'khamr', and I'm no expert on Arabic but it's root meaning is something which 'covers' or 'conceals' In this case the intellect of man."

    This is why i love what the Quran says regarding drugs.. once we realize most drugs like alcohol are downers or antipshycotics and they do without doubt cover or cloud the mind, Cannabis is psychoactive, it opens the mind, its complete opposite effect..The OP of the thread is confused too and rightfully uses the word 'psychedelics' with cannabis as psychedelics open the mind, they dont cause actual hallucinations as such but open ones mind..
    Surely God wouldn't have a problem with open minded and happy people? Open minded happy people are much more likely to discover the truth about God and do good works and ward of evil than someone with a closed depressed mind?
    Cannabis and the consumption of it, it can be reasonably argued is the oldest continually religious practice in known history..
    And the notion that psychedelics destroys intellect is false or at best very questionable, the OP is by a university student, i have known many people that flew through university and got their degree that consumed Cannabis..
    The Wikipedia cannabis page i find misleading going on outdated science and peddling the same half truth and lies put out by big pharma and such corporate interests that have so much to loose when the truth about the medicinal and industrial uses of cannabis and hemp sees the light, big pharma and their co-existence with petrochemicals and other such corporate interests, their monopolies would be greatly reduced, and what does God say about monopolies?
    There is good reason there is so little well financed scientific study on Cannabis and so much disinformation..Imagine if people could grow their own cure for most common and complex aliments?

    As i have said, i have traveled a good bit and had a good few deep meaning fulls with Muslims while smoking my joint and never got the impression it was haram, in fact most people said it's not , its just illegal..Its been consumed in these Arab speaking and predominantly Muslim countries countries for 1000+ years..

    I would like to hear more about the history of prohibition of Cannabis in Islam, i believe it first happened in Egypt, but i read the ruling dynasty of the time were very oppressive and wanted to crush dissent?
    I find it a little sad Islamic community in general is so against it, as doesn't God say? me to my religion and you to yours? And doesn't religion translate in Arabic as 'way of life'?
    Though i want to stress i can understand the best way to be close to God is pure and natural and consuming cannabis on a daily basis for years, never knowing ones natural sate of mind is indeed a sin, for me its something i like on occasion that i know does help me spiritually, and who else can make judgement on that but God?
    If i cause no harm or loss to another , is it anyone else Business? Is it not haram to deny someone that suffers effective medicine while indirectly supporting an evil monopoly ? Or deny a viable food crop to farmers that struggle to afford herbicides and pesticides in this world where many go hungry? Or deny therapy from a lost soul living in a world that no longer cares?

    I leave you all to ponder this, why would God create us with an Endocannabinoid System? What other use is it?
    A few links for the inquiring mind..Just a few random ones, the first link though is an introduction into the Endocannabinoid System..

    STOP right here.

    The Islamic understadning of the word "toxic" differs from the Modern Wests understanding.

    The west take an altogether scientific view of the word toxic - whereas in Islam, the word "khamr" is used to describe something which takes you out of your "natural state".

    When you smoke weed, you get high - that's taking you away from your natural state.

    Intoxication means two very different things, dependant on where you get your definition from.

    If you side with the wests definition - you are opposing the Arabic definition within Islam.

    If you adopt the Islamic understanding of the word "Khamr" (ie: intoxication) you will be at odds with the western definition of the word.

    So when you apply your unilingual use of the word to cannabis - you are doing your Muslim mind no favours.

    Cannabis is Haraam. Full stop.

    Choice is now yours - which version of "INTOXICATION" do you side with?

    ...it would probably sort my back pain..

    but its been at least 11 years since i was even able to think about doing such a thing..

    im sure if i did so today even the walls would speak about it lol.

    its far from as simple as beleiver makes it out to be...

    but what a person does in ignorance he cannot do once he is aware..

    stay asleep.

    its far from me to say who is the pope and who is the mufti.


    do or do not do, there is no try.

    A trusted friend whose first language is Arabic said it meant to cover which fits ant research i have done it is the same word used in Quran were it says for women to cover their breasts, if it meant natural state then someone is doing it wrong

    I dont understand why a perfectly natural virtually non toxic plant God gave us is not permissible, do you take anything for your pain? is all medicine and pain killer haram?

    Isnt God perfect? and doesnt it say for every ailment, God gave us a natural cure?

    Pig is perfectly natural, too. Non-toxic as well. Why is it not permissible?

    No. I read this in books years ago.

    But I'm sure google can help - however I'd prefer to listen to Huzaifah ibn Adam, as he is a student of knowledge within Islam.

    Your premise - Weed is natural... vs Huzaifah's rebuttal with "so is a pig" shows you that your logic is flawed.

    It's enough for us to realize that not all things natural are halal. Like weed. Like pig. Like stabbing yourself in the eye with a miswak. You understand?

    Natural cure for what? Some people may use cannabis and other drugs because they feel themselves unhappy, empty or "want to expand their minds" or what ever. For those problems studing and following Islam gives much better natural cure. Islam is not toxic. It´s free cure to all your problems and totally safe.

    But about cannabis:

    -------------------------------


    Studies have shown that cannabis increases the risk of acute psychosis and may cause long-term consequences, such as schizophrenia. The risk is increased especially at a young age began their users and the risks are increased with increasing use. Cannabis use also increases the risk of depression, anxiety and mood disorders. [1] [17]

    Smoking cannabis cause damage to the respiratory tract. Oral, laryngeal and pharyngeal cancer risk is increased cannabis smokers.

    But I'm sure google can help - however I'd prefer to listen to Huzaifah ibn Adam, as he is a student of knowledge within Islam.

    Your premise - Weed is natural... vs Huzaifah's rebuttal with "so is a pig" shows you that your logic is flawed.

    It's enough for us to realize that not all things natural are halal. Like weed. Like pig. Like stabbing yourself in the eye with a miswak. You understand?

    I would rather listen to God, no one can speck for him no? Isnt what i eat to be judged by God when my day comes?

    You came here - to an Islamic forum, heard what the Muslims have to say - and because you don't like it - you post this?

    I see no history of Arabs using cannabis as a cure for anything.

    So talk all you like - you forget that you are no doctor and therefore when you take cannabis under the pretense of "medicinal use" you are in fact - claiming to self administer a dosage to your self - BUT - you are no Doctor... so you lie to your self.

    Seems to me like on the day of judgement - you will get one heck of a nasty comeuppance for your self deception.

    Wallahi you are lost.

    Do you want a list? The list grows every day as unbiased independent research is done..The undeniable ones known for a long time include off the top of my head, Asthma, epilepsy, Glaucoma,MS, Multiple sclerosis being there is nothing else that relieves the symptoms, thats been recognized by medical science for many years now..There is increasing evidence and numerous testimonies that it reduces Tumors and inhibits the spread of cancer..A few post back i posted some links, there are many many more..I urge you to read about the endocannaboniod system which explains why Cannabis is opposite to toxic.
    I agree that being close to God is the best way to find true happiness and Islam addresses much of the worlds problems, To me banning a natural medicine that supports the corporate monopolies on medicine and health is one of the worlds problems, so is condemning some one that has caused no harm or loss to another, which i find tragic as modern day Islam appears to support this..While the Quran to me at least condemns that.
    Its not just me that has asked and wondered if consumption and the happiness it gives and the open mind feeling can draw us closer to God, its been consumed by spiritual and religious folk throughout recorded history..Its certainly partly responsible for opening my mind to the one God and my study of Islam..Though i have learned constant use and addiction to every thing is bad, god is our best teacher.

    These points below are easy enough debunked and flaws can be found in the methods of many of such studies or at best very questionable, i recommend more research..Many stats are sqewed due to prohibition and studies carried out by the corporations that have an obvious conflict of interest, like the CDC being controlled my the pharma giants that make billions out the vaccines they approve.

    Re: Help! Very Confused About the Islamic Ruling On Cannabis & Psychedelic Use!

    you make a fair point, the united states has a changing stance on cannabis..

    although i suspect its as much to do with government revenue as it is with alternative therapies.

    i know that the idealist has no place in a changing world..

    it is part of progress.

    everybody and everything plays its part.. although i do not know to what end.

    you makes your choices, you takes your chances.. those things that are done by some people cannot be done by all people..

    but you must understand this.

    there is always a tomorrow.

    ya seen.

    leave it at that really.

    allah swt protect us from the evil of our own selves and the evil of the shaitan and his followers.

    Sorry if i offend, i do believe in God and have known many Muslims that say cannabis is not haram, i have consumed cannabis in all Muslim countries i have visited without ill feeling, so i come here to respectfully discuss what i believe is an important issue..
    God is the truth and the punisher? can you really say what the truth is with no proof? can you really punish another with no truth?

    I dare you go find evidence of a more useful and medicinal plant and we can talk..Till then i will continue to obey God and him alone and listen to no other..And stay away from things that cover the mind and from transgressors that ban the good things he made lawful and mind my own business, keep anger and hate out my mind and speak out against injustice. ..

    As for your Muslim friends telling you its ok to smoke it - duh - idiot - if they smoke it so of course they will say its ok.

    Is this what drugs are doing to your brain? making it push putty? You don't even know what you are talking about now.

    Oh you done it now.

    Cannabis cures nothing.

    Find me a cannabis which cures any disease - you cannot.

    Go on.

    I bring to my table - nigella sativa, (the black seed from hadeeth) the oil of which is beneficial and so are the seeds - studies have shown that of the 200 or so compound elements present within Nigella Sativa - only around 48 are known to the scientific and medical establishments and all are beneficial to humans, in many diverse ways - as cures, not treatments - CURES to diseases.

    The other 150 odd compound elements they found present within Nigella Sativa remain unnamed but all tested positively on human beings and further studies are underway in many medical universities where research like this goes on.

    Let's contrast to Cannabis... which form are you talking of? Indica? Sativa? Ruderalis? Hybrid GMO?

    None of these are actually medicinal. They do not CURE any illness - they provide pain relief, and the proper method for pain relief via cannabis is through ingestion. Not smoking it.

    And even then, the results are hit n miss.

    Ever seen a pain sufferer on cannabis? They are stoned and cannot actually function normally - such as drive a car. As that would be illegal.

    Cannabis provides no cure to any disease.

    I know all about cannabis. Astagfirullah - I grew it for many years and grew the best this country has seen, even got noticed by Arjan and Franco from GHsCO in Amsterdam back in my hey day for it, mety Jorge Cervantes, the man who made skunk a think in the 70's - heck I attended cannabis cups in spain and in the dam - and to top it all off - I used to write for weed world and used to be a moderator for ICMAG forum.

    Once again - cannabis cures NOTHING.
