A Brain Hiding, Al Quran


The Quran speaks of this unethical conduct using the term “Khamr” which literally means concealment, in fact drugs or alcohol veil or hide the mind so that it does not function properly.

Drug addiction is that of unethical conduct such as bribery, domestic violence, dowry, etc., which hinders the peace, prosperity and progress of society. This wrong attempt not only affects the biological capacity of the person, but it also affects the psychological coordination, decreases the mental acuity and even drastically changes the behavior of drug addicts.

The Quran speaks of this unethical conduct using the term “Khamr” which literally means concealment, in fact drugs or alcohol veil or hide the mind so that it does not function properly.
In another verse, the Quran says: “They ask you about wine and gambling. Tell them that these are great sins in them, even though they bring profit to people, but their sin is greater than their profit”
Again the Quran says: Indeed Satan desires to stir up enmity and hatred between you by wine and gambling and he desires to keep you from remembering and praying to God, but you will forsake them”
Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said “Everything intoxicating is Khamr, and everything intoxicating is forbidden”
The Quran and Hadith are the highest teachings on all knowledge strictly condemn any craving for drugs or alcohol. It is the most serious concern of society that has produced direct, accurate and clear influences on the well-being of society, especially on young people. Persistent or sporadic drug use has posed a huge challenge to parents, ordinary people, intellectuals, social activists, school leaders and government officials.
This has caused human beings to engage in morally questionable behavior and deviate from the proper social code of conduct. In young boys and girls, it has resulted in great harm to their academic or professional careers, as it blankets the minds of drug addicts and alters psychological coordination and function.
Jammu and Kashmir is the recurring feature of this drug menace and has become the drug hub. According to one of the reports that in J&K 6 lakh young people have become victims of drug addiction, it means that 4.6% of the total population have been involved in this menace.
Besides that, it has increased several times, especially the 17-33 age group. Illegal drugs such as heroin, cocaine, brown sugar, cannabis, opioids, morphine, codeine, caffeine, nicotine, etc. are among the drugs used by these young people.
Other effects behind this brain hiding are unemployment, as usually these young people are diverted from the educational career path, maladjustment in society, less religious awareness, slowing of CNS function and effect on senses and feelings of drug addicts. .
In the drug menace, girls are now part of the drug addiction menace and are heavily involved in the trafficking of drugs of varied choice. Some girls who feel depressed due to marital issues or social issues start using drugs and become addicted to them. They even use drugs to escape the various pressures of life or to try to experience the most pleasure (Euphoria) but this compulsive drug use among girls has led to adverse effects on their mental health and ethics.
Socially, they feel incompatible, lose the sense of right and wrong, fail to attend to constructive works, fail to realize their dreams and thus have destructive consequences. When girls usually become addicted to drugs, they lose control and unknowingly fall into lonely places, which can lead to immoral act factors such as violence or sexual harassment.
The drugs that young boys and girls become addicted to do not only impair the person’s cognitive abilities and behavior but also damage their abilities such as reading, writing, systematic thinking, self-respect, versatility , perception, etc.
Drug addiction especially spoils the golden period for boys and girls because they feel psychologically disturbed and they lose the desire for a good education and development. The threat of drugs can destroy the potential of school going youngsters and can cause them to lose their zeal and zest, enthusiasm, energy and goal orientation.
DPOs in drug treatment centers register at least 90% of drug users who habitually inject drugs, especially heroin.
In tackling the threat of drugs in Jammu and Kashmir, parents have to play a key role in advising their children as they try to interact with other people. Parents should also focus constructively on using the power of young people for the betterment of society and make proper advice for future opportunities, educational institutions such as schools, colleges and universities should be involved in a program where they can educate young people about the harmful effects of drugs. In addition to this, the police must play an important role in initiating rigorous efforts and acting as watchdogs to combat drug trafficking and they must establish practical coordination with the heads of colleges and schools so that the awareness and updated reports can be done easily on drug addicts.
The government should develop a careful look at the threat of drugs with other social institutes. Social activists and religious leaders must also address this grave issue in public gatherings or in congregational meetings so that jointly society can release this evil one for a better future of Jammu and Kashmir.
