ID: 910

Name: Permissible and Impermissible


Assalam Alikum W.r.b brother,

Is it halal business to distribute glass pipes to retail stores? For example I am attaching a link; so you know which glass pipes I am talking about.
Waiting for your reply. Thank you for your time and effort; May Allah give you jaza.


الجواب وبالله التوفيق

If such pipes are manufactured and only used for using (intoxicants or) drugs then it is considered impermissible to sell them and will be considered as an act of helping or assisting the drug users. Due to it being assistance of a haram act it will be considered haram as well. 

If however, these pipes are used for consuming drugs as well as non-intoxicants then it will be permissible to sell them. In this case, the person who uses it for doing drugs will be held responsible for his actions solely. This is still not something which is free of karahiyat(i.e. something which is disliked or detested or makrooh in other words).
