I am a young boy who has a chronic disease ulcerative colitis, which is an intestinal disease where you have severe stomach cramps and soft stools. My illness cannot be cured as I have taken various medicines from my doctor and the hospital, and been hospitalized many times.
I have really given up everything and the illness and the incurable medicine make me look for other resort for this difficult situation I have.
I am otherwise a successful man who has job who both got married and became a father at an early age as I wanted to achieve life happiness and iman and walk away from the bad roads.
My wife and I pray, and have a really good life with our son ilhamdillah. However, my illness is incredibly stressful, as I can not participate in family activities or be at work when my illness is serious (as it has been the last few months), as I have to go to the toilet every hour approx.
My question to you dear Sheik:
I have chosen to look at what others like me are doing with this disease and that is smoking Hash (astargfurulah). I’m not happy about it, but I’ve both heard and tried it myself, even though I felt bad about it. Smoking cannabis made me feel better and I only went to the toilet once a day, subhanallah. When I take cannabis, I see it as medicine and my intention is not bad. My wife found out, and got very upset and angry, which I understand, but she asked me to write to you and ask what you think about that matter.
Namely cannabis as a medicine for my disease and not cannabis to have fun with …

I hope you will reply me soon, and thank you so much for the help.

As Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

We hope this answer reaches you in good health and Islamic spirit.

Based on your specific question and information provided.

From the Fiqh / Jurisprudence perspective.

By considering the serious harm of narcotic drugs, it is forbidden to use them due to the great damage they cause. Based on obligatory precaution, it is compulsory to refrain from using them in any way [even if there is no harm] [or relief from secondary symptoms], except for medical purposes to cure the actual underlying disease [approved by an accredited Medical Physician] ; in the latter case, it can be used only to the extent of need [as prescribed by an accredited Medical Physician] till the actual underlying disease is cured.

.اَللّٰهُ أَعْلَم
(Allah(awj) Knows best)
