Perlis mufti ticks off Muslims smoking in mosque compound

Mohd-Asri-Zainul-AbidinKANGAR: Although the National Fatwa Council has banned smoking, there are still some Muslims who continue to smoke in the compounds of mosques.

Perlis Mufti Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin hit out at those who did and said, “They not only throw cigarette butts all over the place and dirty the mosque, they are also unaware that what has been decided as unlawful cannot be brought into the mosque.”

In his weekly Maghrib ceramah at Masjid Alwi here last night, Mohd Asri advised Muslims to stop the bad habit as it was detrimental to one’s health.
