What is the ruling on Huqqah?
In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.
Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (RA) has written, “Without any valid reason to smoke huqqah is Makruh Tanzihi. To smoke it in order to digest the food is not Makruh itself, but because the smell it produces it will be Makruh Tanzihi” (Imdadul Fatawa p.114 v.4)
Only Allah Knows Best
