Smoking is haraam but it does not invalidate wudoo’
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
What is the Islamic ruling on selling all kinds of tobacco? I smoke but when I hear the muezzin I enter the mosque. Do I have to repeat my wudoo’, or is rinsing out the mouth sufficient? I know that smoking causes various diseases.

Praise be to Allaah.
It is haraam to sell tobacco because it is evil and causes a great deal of harm. The one who does that is regarded as a faasiq (rebellious evildoer). It is not essential to repeat wudoo’ after smoking but it is prescribed to get rid of the foul smell from the mouth by using something that will take it away. It is also essential to hasten to repent to Allaah from that. End quote.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
