(Fatwa: 1109/1109=M/1430)


Marijuana (ganja) is an intoxicant item and Shariah disallows every intoxicant: کل مسکر حرام

It is forbidden to even go nearer to Salah in the state of intoxication, as the Quran says: لا تقربوا الصلاۃ وانتم سکاری

What you have heard about alcohol is right. This Hadith is mentioned in Tirmizi, Nasai etc. There is no narration particularly about marijuana.

Allah knows Best!
