Those who keep taking drugs and drinking alcohol, do so to remain on a ‘high’. They do so to escape the problems their sins have landed them in. But when the effect of this wears off, or when the person becomes immune, then he has to increase the strength of the drug to get on that ‘high’.
The end result is loss of health, damage to the physical and spiritual self, loss of wealth and respect, and abuse of wife, children and parents.
When a person makes the Zikr (Praise of Allah Ta’ala) ofAllah Ta’ala, stays away from everything prohibited, develops a close bond with his Creator, drowns in the ‘ISHQ’ of Allah Ta’ala and that of Rasulullah, then he is always on a ‘high’ – a ‘spiritual high’, without any drugs. He enjoys such coolness, satisfaction and peace, that if drug addicts only knew or tasted of it, they would go nowhere near drugs.
