Public Health

Central to a Muslim’s consciousness is the awareness of the community they are part of. How should its health be safeguarded? Can the rights of an individual to live as they choose be balanced against the wellbeing of those around them?

This series will, God willing, address the following questions:

What can Muslims contribute to the current public health debates surrounding healthy eating, alcohol consumption and drug misuse?

What is the legal ruling on smoking?

Is sheesha viewed the same, or is it an exception?

What about qaat, or paan?
