Here’s an excellent website which covers just about everything you need to know about Hajj. There are fatwas, audios, articles, health tips, etc. They even have a cute flash program on how to do Hajj.

Smoking whilst in Ihram??

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

I still remember when I was at Dhul Hulaifah (the miqaat for the people of Madinah). I came out of the masjid and saw two chimneys.

These two chimneys looked suspiciously like they were two men in ihram clothes. Judging by the amount of smoke that was coming out of them, one would think that they were trying to squeeze in as much puffing as possible before they assumed their ihram.

Unfortunately, this chimney scene is quite common.

So, what’s the deal on Brother Chimney?

Here’s a clip, from Ask Huda with Brother Muhammad Salah, that discusses this issue:
