Thank you, brother, Alaykom as salaam.
My dad's attitude is really good, he hopes in Allah for health and to live, but says he is ready to go, insha Allah. I'm proud of him. He is 80 years old and thankful for the good life he has lived thus far.
I don't think he's using the cannabis oil much if at all anymore, but is using the butter to rub on the sore spot on his back. I'm glad for whatever good it does him, Allah alam.
As sallam alaykom wa rahmat Allah

I dont mean to be disrespectful to any brother in my posts so I apologize about this.

In "reliance of the traveller" it states: "the term beverage excludes plants, such as hashish, which hashish users eat. The two shiekhs report in thier section on foods the position of Ruyani that eating it is unlawful, though no legal penalty is fixed for it. Just as any beverage that intoxicates when taken in large quantities is also unlawful in small quantities, so too it is absolutley unlawful to use any solid substance detrimental to mind or body which produces languor or has a narcotic effect, this prohibition applying to the amount that is deleterious of it, not to the minute, beneficial amounts prescribed to treat illnesses, for such substances are not unlawful in themselves, but unlawful because they are deleterious."

It looks to me from this section that if you are using minute, beneficial amounts to treat an illness it would not be prohibited. May Allah swt cure the sick there is no cure but His cure.

You must be blind if you do not see the studies which show short and long term harmful effects of marijuana on mind and body. But I was wrong to say that it is of no benefit completley or no medicine can come from it, that is for researchers to find.

Today many people using hashish and many using an excuse of medicine to legally consume marijuana according to government laws. This is unacceptable haram recreational use.

You should be watchful because before we die and Allah swt weighs our good and bad deeds, using marijuana will also effect your mind and body also and it is something Allah swt has forbidden us to use.

I found yet another proof that using marijuana and all drugs is infact haram without any dispute. This should be the absolute end of the question at hand except for those who follow their desires and deny the truth and follow their ego.

(Ibn ‘Umar (radiya’Llahu ‘anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (salla’Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said,“Every intoxicant (muskir) is wine (khamr) and every intoxicant is forbidden. He who drinks wine in this world and dies while he is addicted to it, not having repented, will not be given a drink in the Hereafter.”[12] This hadith is one of the primary texts that prove the prohibition of anything that intoxicates like wine. Ibn Hajar al-Haytami (rahmatu’Llahi ‘alayh), considered to be among the foremost legal authorities of the entire late Shafi‘i legal school, has classified the consumption of hashish (hashisha) and opium (afyun) as an enormity or a major sin.[13] Imam al-Dhahabi (rahmatu’Llahi ‘alayh) defined an enormity as “any sin entailing either a threat of punishment in the hereafter explicitly mentioned in the Qur’an and Hadith, a prescribed legal penalty or being accursed by Allah and His Messenger (salla’Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).”[14] Among those classical authorities who wrote of the prohibition of hashish were Imam Zarakhshi, Ibn Taymiyya, al-Qirafi, Abu Ishaq al-Shirazi and Imam Nawawi (rahmatu’Llahi ‘alayhim). In short, the four legal schools agree that all intoxicants are unlawful, and they include plants that intoxicate under this category of prohibited substances.[15] There is a misconception among Muslim users that although drugs are unlawful, smoking hashish is not so serious. Or they say that at least we don’t drink! They seem to divide drugs into hard and soft drugs: a division that is quite baseless according to Divine law. All drugs are Class A according to our religion.)

If you can pray to God - i.e. through any channel aswel as through prayer, who is to say you cannot... who says prayer is to be on your knees or on the floor, prayer is thought or a message. Do not think for one second that praying to God 5 times a day is the only acceptable way to communicate with god. It is your personal journey, nothing is set in stone per say

This is not the belief of the Muslims, the belief of the Muslims is found in this excerpt from the book "Reliance of the Traveler" originally written by Imam Abu Hamed Al Ghazali:

"HIS TRANSCENDENCE
v1.3 He is not a body with a form, or a limitary, quantitative substance, not resembling bodies in
quantifiability or divisibility, or in being a substance or equalified by substance, or being an accident or
qualified by accidents. He does not resemble anything that exists, nor anything that exists resemble Him.
There is nothing whatsoever like unto Him, nor is He like unto anything. He is not delimited by
magnitude, contained by places, encompassed by directions, or bounded by heavens or earth. He is
'established on the Throne'(mustawin, Koran 20:5) in the way He says and the meaning He intends,
'established' in a manner transcending contact, settledness, fixity, indwelling, or movement. The Throne
does not bear Him up, but is borne, up by the subtlety of His infinite power, as are the angels who carry
it, and all are powerless in His grasp. He is above the Throne, the heavens, and all else to the farthest
reaches of the stars, with an aboveness that does not increase His nearness to the Throne or heavens, or
His distance from the earth and what lies beneath it. He is as exalted in degree above the Throne and
the heavens as He is above the earth and its depths, though He is near to everything in existence, nearer
to a servant than his own jugular vein, and is witness to everything. His nearness no more resembles the
nearness of objects to one another than His entity resembles the entities of objects. He does not indwell
in anything, nor anything indwell in 'Him. He is as exalted above containment in space as he is above
confinement in time. He was, before creating time and space, and is not even as He was. He is
distinguished from His creation by His attributes. There is nothing in His entity other that Him, nor is
His entity in what is other than Him .He is beyond change and motion :events neither occurs with in Him
nor changes befall Him .of majestly exalted above change, and in the attributes of His perfection beyond
needing any increase in perfection. The existence of His entity is known by human reason, and in the
after life is beheld by the eyesight of the reghteous as a beatitude and favor, to consummate their perfect
joy with the sight of His Noble Countenance."

Only Allah Subhana wa Tallah can give you an answer to this question. Pray to Our Rabb when you are alone in the night and inshaAllah things will be clearer and clearer for you as time passes. Your problem is also many others problem as well. Always take any advice with a grain of salt, and if your heart is True, the answer will also show if it is True or not. Many people argue over what is allowed and what is not. I am in no way saying Weed is Haram nor Halal.

There is a Hadith I remember but can not quote from the top of my head nor do I know if it is authentic of course since it is not in the Quran, but it spoke of a fly dropping into a drink of water and The Prophet Muhammad salAllah hu Allaihi wale waSalam said if you see it in your drink, to not take it out but to dip it all the way in, because one side will give you an illness and one side will have the cure. SubhanAllah! This goes with everything in life...even food, organic or not, can kill people ie. obesity related death, and can even cure diseases :-) Everything, while on earth, has a beneficial and harmful side, just as humans do, except that humans have the Choice to choose good or bad (there is no such thing as a balance between black and white, it is either one or the other)

Everything that is used should be in moderation and used with sense. InshaAllah kheir. If people started focusing on solving the bigger problems (world hunger, poverty, war etc etc etc so many)these confusions would not exist in anyones hearts. May Al Rahman Al Raheem Malik Al Qudoos guide those who Seek for Truth.

Salam Alaykum,

I smoked cannabis for 10 years and yes it is very very very addictive without a doubt.
Alkhamduliallah i quit recently after poundering upon the verse of Quran:
O you who believe, intoxicants, and gambling, and the altars of idols, and the games of chance are abominations of the devil; you shall avoid them, that you may succeed.

Paradise = Success = Acting on the will of Allah(swt)
Hellfire = Great loss = Acting on your own will.

You cannot say that if speed, coke or xtacy is not mentioned in Quran it is allowed. Quran is not an enclyclopedia that contains information about everything from needle to the spaceship or from first human being to the last one, But it gives out instructions and signs with examples from Prophets time and people and prophets before him so that the people with understanding take heed.

May Allah guide us to the straight path,

I like how you mention that people say: weed is not mentioned in Holy Quran, so it must be halal.

That is quite the foolish thing to say, but can we blame them? That is because Islam is such a comprehensive religion, it leaves nothing out.

But the common people who have no total understanding, cannot connect the dots, cannot make rulings from sources, so they must ask those who know.

If you go to the traditional texts you will find that marijuana is unanimously considered to be haram, maybe, maybe some exceptions can be made for health reasons etc, but that is no excuse for somebody to complain of some "back pain" or some "anxiety" to start smoking for fun, you may trick the doctors etc and they dont care,

but do not take your religion lightly, there will come a day when we will not be able to speak, when our works are displayed infront of us.

How did you spend your money as a youngster? how did you spend your money?

You are dealing with a mind altering plant drug, addictive, and who knows how it effects you in the long term, Allahu A'lam, you are playing with your soul, and shaitan is your enemy.

That is for the lowest of the low to smoke these plants, Allah subhannahu wa taala, Most Glorious and Most Merciful, He did not create this plant so that you can smoke it everyday, to become like a red eyed shaitan, to start coughing like a diseased fool, to laugh and waste your time in this earth, you do not know your life here will come to an end one day?

We take refuge in Allah Most Merciful from all acts which will make us be doomed

Thank god somepeople are speaking some sense..
i googled this "topic" and it sent me to pages of this thread 3 years ago . where people were talking nonsense and saying it was allowed
the facts are cannabis is haram , i remember looking up the subject on this very forum the day before i quit
and trying to claw back a reason that it was permitted , but islam is a religion of common sense if you feel it in your heart that its wrong it probably is.
any intoxicant is not allowed , in the quran cannabis is not mentioned but "khamr" is meaning intoxicant.

but i still found people trying to say it wasnt intoxicating

the last time i smoked cannabis for some reason i couldnt walk straight, as i usually could after smoking ,after that i never smoked it again.

cannabis is intoxicating, no doubt about that. Also makes you paranoid, anxious, and stupid. After a while of smoking I fear some of these effects don't leave.

There are some scholars who put out of the fold of Islam those who deny the unlawfulness of every intoxicant.
Using marijuana will very quickly lead to intoxication. Stop listening to western garbage which claims marijuana
Is a natural herb which the body processes normally, why there are some natural plants which contain lethal poison does that mean we can eat and smoke it? In this case it would kill you.
Don't listen to their garbage that it is not harmful and not addictive, I direct you to any internet forum who are suffering from marijuana mental problems and addiction.

Islam leads to mental problems.
