  • What's that thing that somalis chew on?

    Salaam, What's that thing that somalis chew on?
    Does it make them high?
    "And swell not thy cheek (for pride) at men, nor walk in insolence through the earth; for Allah loveth not any arrogant boaster. Surah Luqman:18

        It's called 'khat' and Somalis call it 'qaad' in their language. It's a plant whose leaves they chew to get high...and since it also causes loss of appetite, some use it to lose weight. Wiki

                Yep its a drug although many try to "justify" it saying that they don't get affected. It is amongst those things that break down households etc etc etc

                But all due to the lack of Islam i guess.

                lol
                (The hypocrites) will call the believers: "Were we not with you?" The believers will reply: "Yes! But you led yourselves into temptations, you looked forward for our destruction; you doubted (in Faith); and you were deceived by false desires, till the Command of Allah came to pass. And the chief deceiver (Satan) deceived you in respect of Allah."57:14

                    Yes, Somalis pronounce it as qaad, Arabs pronounce it as qat, some choose khaat. However, it's a percentage of Somalis that are addicted to the drug, which surprisingly isn't actually cultivated in Somalia to begin with. It comes from Ethiopian farms and is also cultivated in Yemen, as Yemenis (not all) love it as much as Somalis.

                      Do not think of minor sins as insignificant, for mountains are made out of pebbles.

                            Have you seen the way somalis defend the use of khat even the 'sheikhs' eat it
                            By the morning brightness and by the night when it grows still, your Lord has not forsaken you [Prophet], nor does He hate you, and the future will be better for you than the past; your Lord is sure to give you so much that you will be well satisfied.
