    2. 2. TOPIC: Smoking Kills 2
    3. 3. INTRODUCTION Smoking is one of the worst things that kids or adults can do to their bodies. Yet every single day nearly 4,400 kids between the ages 12 and 17 start smoking. 3
    4. 4. WHAT IS SMOKING? Smoking is a practice in which a substance, most commonly tobacco, is burned and the smoke is tasted or inhaled and then, exhaled. The most common method of smoking today is through cigarettes. 4
    5. 5. WHY DO PEOPLE SMOKE?  Many people started smoking long before they learned how unhealthy it was, and now it is hard for them to stop.  Some people start smoking because they think it is "cool".  All their friends are smokers and they don’t want to be the odd ones out.  His family smoked so he wanted to try it.  Some may just be foolish enough to think that smoking will5 not harm them.
    6. 6. WHAT HAPPENS? A cigarette contains substance called nicotine, that gives pleasure to smokers. Nicotine is a poison. The scientists say nicotine can kill a person when taken in large amounts. 6
    7. 7. HOOKAH Another form of smoking tobacco, which is very popular among teens nowadays is “ Hookah“ also called as “Sheesha”. 7
    8. 8. HOOKAH’S APPEAL Wide variety of flavors + Pleasant smells  Social activity  Hookah bars/lounges  Portable hookahs  8
    9. 9. MYTHS ABOUT HOOKAH Its flavor doesn’t contain tobacco and nicotine.  Hookah is better than cigarettes because the toxic smoke passes through the water and it cleans the smoke of it’s toxins.  9
    10. 10. ALL OF THESE ARE “ False Perceptions “ 10
    11. 11. EXPOSURE TO TOXINS Water does not purify smoke of all toxins  Exposed to:  Tar  Carbon Monoxide  Heavy metals  Carcinogens  11
    12. 12. WHO ADVISORY A typical one-hour session of hookah smoking exposes the user to 100 to 200 times the volume of smoke inhaled from a single cigarette.  Contains more nicotine than cigarette  Same addiction risk as other forms of tobacco  12
    13. 13. OTHER HAZARDS  Hygienic hazard   Passing pipes between people  possibility of infection Fire hazard  Lit charcoal  Slightest movement can cause hookah to topple causing a fire 13
    14. 14. SO,WE CONCLUDE THAT, “ Hookah is just as dangerous as other forms of tobacco.” 14
    15. 15. SMOKING AND HEALTH Every year about five million people lose their lives because of smoking. Smoking is the single most important preventable cause of death. It causes the two most deadly diseases: heart disease and lung cancer, as well as other deadly diseases. 15
    16. 16. EFFECTS OF SMOKING ON THE BODY Organs Short Term Effects Long Term Effects Brain Head-aches Stops body parts from working Eyes Cannot focus Go blind Ears Becomes a little deaf Totally deaf Mouth Yellow teeth, bad breath Mouth cancer Skin Wrinkles Skin cancer Heart Stroaks,increase heart beat Heart disease Lungs Asthma Lungs cancer 16
    17. 17. MOSTLY EFFECTED ORGANS The organs, which are mostly effected by smoking are:    Heart Lungs Brain 17
    18. 18. LUNGS CANCER: The other major respiratory disease that smoking causes is lung cancer .New evidence has identified an important gene - p53, found in the nucleus of every cell. Its main role is to clean up any errors or changes that occur within copied cells. This means that any cell with damaged p53 is highly susceptible to cancer. . 18
    19. 19. RISKS OF LUNGS CANCER: The risk of developing lungs cancer is related to both ,how long and how much a person has smoked. For instance, a person who takes up smoking in their teens is five times more likely to die of lung cancer than someone who starts after their mid twenties. 19
    20. 20. ASTHMA: When someone smokes, he may cough, wheeze, and feel short of breath. This is because smoke irritates the airways, causing them to become swollen, narrow, and filled with sticky substance. These are the same things that happen during an asthma flare-up. That's why smoking can cause asthma flare-ups .Those flare-ups may be more severe 20 and harder to control, even with medicine.
    21. 21. OTHER CANCERS OF RESPIRATORY SYSTEM: Smoking is a major cause of cancers of the oral cavity, oesophagus and larynx. The use of alcohol in combination with smoking greatly increases smokers' risk for these cancers. 21

    25. 25. SMOKING IN ISLAM A general rule of the Islamic Shariah is that it is haram for the Muslim to eat or drink anything which may cause his death, either quickly or gradually, such as poisons or substances which are injurious to health or harmful to his body .Moreover ,Shariah also prohibits the wastage of money. 25
    26. 26. VERSES  Allah says: « And do not kill yourselves; indeed, Allah is ever Merciful to you. » (4, 29)  He also says: « And do not be cast into ruin by your own hands …» (2, 195)  Allah says: ...But spend not wastefully (your wealth) in the manner of a spendthrift, Verily, spendthrifts are brothers of the devils, and the Devil (Satan) is ever ungrateful to his Lord..>> (Quran 17/26-27) 26
    27. 27. ISLAMIC POINT OF VIEW As an application of this principle, if it is proved that the use of tobacco is injurious to health; It is prohibited in Islam, especially for a person whose physician has advised him to stop smoking. Even if it is not injurious to health, it is still a waste of money, spent neither for religious nor for secular benefit, and the Prophet (peace be on him) forbade the wasting of wealth. 27
    28. 28. SO, ISLAM doesn’t allow any one to smoke..!! 28
