From what I know, they aren't addictive. Simply making you "feel good" isn't a good enough reason to make them haram, because many things that make you feel good are halal. Anything can become psychologically addictive. This is different because it is not chemically addictive. I would say you would be addicted to these mushrooms as much as you would if you ate shitake or portabello.

Yes "simply making you feel good" IS a good enough reason why it IS haram.Are you saying that if it makes you feel good and it isn't addictive or isn't made in a lab is halal?
Doesn't dope and alcohol make the consumers feel good as well, so by that logic, it is okay to use both as long as you don't become addicted?

Intoxication - excitement, euphoria, elation, exhilaration...


Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) prohibited every intoxicant and muftir (every substance which slackens the mind). So that which excites and irritates the mind, body and heart is forbidden. "Whatever intoxicates in a greater quantity is also unlawful in its smaller quantity."

read these personal experience stories and tell me if this sounds like something that Islam would permit.

Here are some stories from people who have tried magic mushrooms:

Magic mushroom trip report 1:

"Ok, for all of you who are wondering if u should take shrooms or not. Take em! But, just let me tell you. U get hit by them different everytime u take em. I've taken them 4 times and twice I had bad trips. Last night I tripped and I seriously wanted to kill everyone that I was with. They were just SO annoying. And when your trippin and your in a bad "enviroment", it makes it very disturbing. I felt like I was trapped in my own body. And I was sitting on the couch and I felt like I was laying on the floor. It was so weird. The ceiling looked like it was pulsing and the way the light hit the shadow creases in the ceiling, it made it looks like it was moving. SUCHA a bugout. It was the worst time ever. BUT I took them over the summer and I went and smoked a fat blunt in the woods..it was SO fun. The grass looked like the ocean and it was moving. Crazy stuff. I've yet to actually hallucinate and actually SEE things. Ive never seen things, Ive only seen things moving and stuff like that."

Magic mushroom trip report 2:

"Ijust tripped alittle while ago for my first time,I had eaten them before and had a "happy drunk feeling" but mushrooms had never really affected me that much. Last weekend though i drank 40oz of mushroom tea and i watched the abyss. I woke up the next day in a park 7 miles away from my house, it was a crazy night."

Magic mushrooms trip report 3:

"Hi , last weekend i drank a cup of shroom-tea .i had already tried mushrooms but that's 2 years ago . the mushrooms were dried and i didn't feel much then . my friends told me that tea was a better experience so i tried . very soon already i noticed the sensations in my body : sickness vibrations in my view ... but at a certain point there was a rush of thoughts that lasted 3 hours . i wanted it to stop because i was so far gone i saw the world around me wave and my friends face was melting and that for a long time , i was very scared at that moment because i couldn't feel my hart pumping or hear myself breathing , the panic in my head rose to a peak and i heard people starting to shout blood ! blood ! help him ! he's almost gone ! i heard sirens of an ambulance and all the people staring and pointing towards me ...i went insane... suddenly i relaxed ( fortunately ) and i was dancing on the party i wanted to go to . i felt like i teleported from one person to another and then the colors began to flow : i was like in a sea of liquid emotions . 1 hour after that i returned to the normal state of mind ( i think : visuals were gone and thoughts were normal again ) . i read your " online magic-mushroom book " and i now realize that i have to learn to relax more and not be such a control freak all the time when i'm having a trip . thanx"

..judging by what sis aurora mentioned above from people's experiences i wouldn't want to try them, no way :| but on a related topic .. if you look at medicines today, there are loads that have similar properties to these mushrooms .. some in minute forms and some in heavier forms.. there are people i know who take sleeping pills on a regular basis, after a short while, i notice a remarkable change n their mood & they start becoming more jolly before they doze off :) ..

personally i get freaked out from medicines with any element of drowsiness..& hate it when the doc prescribes them.. :| two years ago i was on prolonged medication and actually felt hallucinations first hand.. once i literally felt myself standing in another country talking with a group of people when i was actually sitting on my chair ! Astaghfirullah.. i don;t even want to remember it :| but my advise is do your best to stay fit and stay away from anything and everything which can affect your consciousness

Alhamdolilah there is so much wonderful stuff out there for eating and drinking, why 'try' something which you don;t really know about.. better safe than sorry :)

take care

please don't give me that spiel again. if that is the case, you can't have sugar, caffeine, sex, etc. I'm saying if it's not already haram, simply being pleasurable doesn't MAKE it haram.

And I don't need an anonymous web report on mushrooms. I can speak from experience since I've had them before (remember, I reverted 6 years ago). The people who wrote those stories you posted probably already had mental problems if that is their experience with it.

I think we are misunderstand each other here. What makes it haram is NOT ONLY because it is pleasurable, but because it alters your state of mind in the process...you say well it makes me feel good so why is it haram? the pleasure per se isn't haram, but it is intoxicating, whether or not it gives pleasure or pain is irrelevant! How can you compare this to caffeine, sex, or sugar? There is no comparison. Yes maybe it's true that all 3 give you pleasure, but they do not alter your state of mind. I've never had hallucinations from drinking coffee, have you?

Can you engage in prayer while being high and having hallucinations?

Am I misusing the word intoxicant? I did not make up the definition, it is from the Merriam-Webster dictionary.

Definition of INTOXICATION
1
: an abnormal state that is essentially a poisoning <carbon monoxide intoxication>
2
a : the condition of being drunk : inebriation b : a strong excitement or elation
Examples of INTOXICATION

<there's a firm distinction between the moderate consumption of alcoholic beverages and overindulgence to the point of intoxication>
<the intoxication felt by two people who have just fallen in love>

In case Merriam is wrong:

Intoxication is the state of being affected by one or more psychoactive drugs..
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intoxication

A poisoning, as by a spirituous or a narcotic substance; The state of being intoxicated or drunk; inebriation; ebriety; drunkenness; the act of intoxicating or making drunk; A high excitement of mind; an elation which rises to enthusiasm, frenzy, or madness
en.wiktionary.org/wiki/intoxication

Being under the influence of, and responding to, the acute effects of a psychoactive drug. Intoxication typically includes feelings of pleasure, altered emotional responsiveness, altered perception, and impaired judgment and performance.
http://www.addictionstudies.org/glossary_i.html


The earlier Hadith I mentioned: Narrated Jabir ibn Abdullah: "The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: If a large amount of anything causes intoxication, a small amount of it is prohibited. (Translation of Sunan Abu-Dawud, Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah), Book 26, Number 3673)"

To AuroraBorealis:

I am an experienced psychedelic user. I have taken approximately 20+ hits of LSD, often 2 hits at a time (double the typical dose) and I have tripped on mushrooms about 7 times, 3-4 times on 1/8 oz (typical dose) and 3 times on 1/4 oz (double dose), as well as having used DMT a few times and a couple 'designer drugs' that mimic LSD without using any Schedule I substances.

To this extent, I think that I have the experience to say that the quotations of drug trips that you have posted are not the typical, or even atypical response to psychedelics. People do not just "black out" and wake up 8 hours later. The typical bad trip - and mind you, a bad trip is incredibly rare; I've only had a bad trip for appx. 2 hours total of all the hours I have spent under the influence of psychedelics, where a typical trip lasts 8-10 hours - generally makes the user fearful, not angry and violent.

It is often that the users of psychedelics feel more in-tune with the world around them and often feel more sympathetic and empathetic to the feelings of those around them.

There is nothing inherently bad with psychedelics; I do not believe they are for everyone, but for those that seek to do them, they will often have a great time and may even find their religious beliefs strengthened, should they hold any.




Finally, you use the word intoxication which requires poison. Psilocybin mushrooms are non-toxic and there is no known lethal dose, or at least none that could be feasibly taken. This also holds true for most 'typical' psychedelics drugs, while it does not hold true with 'designer' psychedelic drugs.

this is how magic mushrooms affect the body

if you read that, and/or know anything about how the body processes magic mushrooms, it does not fulfill the requirements to be considered an intoxicant. so while i am in wholehearted agreement with the ahadith you provided;

Jabir ibn Abdullah wrote:
"The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: If a large amount of anything causes intoxication, a small amount of it is prohibited. (Translation of Sunan Abu-Dawud, Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah), Book 26, Number 3673)"


it is not applicable here, and it has been used already. please read previous posts before submitting, so as to avoid spamming.

First, it realyl doesn't matter whether it's a "good trip" or "bad trip", the fact that it does alter your state of mind is what would make this thing haram.

Second, just because some people don't have extreme effects does not make it okay. Some people drink alcohol all their lives and never do anything bad, or they don't ever get drunk. It is still haram in Islam, no matter what the dose or how a particular person responds to it.

Also, regarding the toxicity of magic mushrooms; by definition intoxication can be several different things. It isn't required for one to be poisoned in order to be intoxicated. Bottom line altered state of mind. Plain and simple.

peanutqpublic -

Apparently the word intoxication has several different meanings.

The synonims that I used the first time around to describe intoxication were excitement, euphoria, elation, exhiliration.Those web-dictionaries that I quoted the second time around also use these words to describe it: high excitement of mind; an elation which rises to enthusiasm, frenzy, or madness.

Are they not SYNONIMS?

I don't see why you are yelling at me to look up the definition, when I gave you the correct one both times.
If you throw out your biased opinion, the answer to this question is quite clear.

I'm sorry but I see no argument from your side. You are also wrong to accuse me of using incorrect definitions of intoxication. I've made my argument clear the first time around, and now I just feel like I have to repeat myself since you are failing to understand it.

If you think just because there can be a bad side-effect derived from something, that that thing is inherently bad, then I'm sorry but you're incredibly naive. Everything can be bad if used in the wrong way.

i never saw your response to that, or any evidence that you know the ways mushrooms affect the body from a scientific standpoint. if you consider educated opinions biased i'm sorry for you. i'm just tired of hearing people hold strong opinions about things they know nothing about.

The reason I posted those 3 stories is because they show how significant the effects can be from the use of these mushrooms. There are many more on that website, very similar experiences, some are seemingly positive though, with different experience every time. Good or bad they all prove obvious change in perception. This mere fact is why these mushrooms are catagorized as intoxicants, and therefore haram in Islam.


Anything can be used for good or bad, but we are talking about magic mushrooms here...

If you understand this, then perhaps you should have posted some positive stories as well so as not to look like a brainwashed muppet that doesn't know how to think critically.
