How should I advise someone who is a chain smoker

Q: I would like to know what advices can I give to a sister who is learning Aleema but is a chain smoker?


A: If you do have some influence over her and she will be prepared to listen to what you say then explain to her that apart from the harms of smoking and inconvenience caused to others, it does not behove one who is engaged in reciting the Quraan and the Ahaadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) to dirty his/her mouth with such things.

And Allah Ta'ala knows best.
