Assallam u allaykum brother.I am posting my question to zoaib on the open board in order for everyone to learn from,if this issue has not already been discussed.
I'm a practising muslim inshallah.I have a wife and two children and i'm on my first cycle.The other day my wife asked me "with you doing steroids ,don't you really think you have sinned."
It's an issue which i did ponder for a while,and in situations like this a muslim should turn to a learned sheik for answers.The problem with that is the sheik is only going to judge the use of steroids only through what he has heard from the media and the word spread of how steroids are bad for you.
So i said to her,"i'm not learned enough to answer your question in full understanding ,but like anything if used in moderation and is doing you good then there isn't a problem.But there is also a possibilty that steroids could do you more harm than good,even if used correctly and in moderation.If you eat a certain food and it harms you and then you proceed to eat that food on another occasion,then you are considered harming yourself.So this issue i think is an individual thing,and if steroids are not harming me then i think inshallah i have not sinned(Allahu Allam)
What are your thoughts on this Zoaib?Your input would be appreciated.

i have read many fatwas on this topic and they have been only fatwas as to say mostly given by people who only know the meaning of the word STEROIDS ........ anyways i aint no sheikh but the things that are really forbidden in islam are things that alter ones mind and perception and also behaviour (drugs etc of the kind) and those things that can harm your body ........... under these circumstances steroids stereotypically come under this umbrella of HARAM things ................
my opinion about this is that , if your intention for the use of these anabolic steroids is to look good and get laid , then its HARAM , if its to look good , get strong and look good for Allah (he likes beauty, since he is the creator of all beautiful things) and for your own self , then its justified in the eyes of Allah , and if u do it so your wife feels good about having a stud lookin guy in the house and gets more attracted to u then this becomes even more justified and done for the right means and NEEYAH (intention) ...........
now this is solely my opinion , but i want u to get the point that if u can purely justify your intention infornt of God as he knows whats in your heart and their is no wrong intention for its use , and also as long as u dont use it in a way that it harms your health then , atleast in my view its okay ......... also since this doesnt fall into the category of KABEERA GUNAH ......... i am sure Allah can forgive while u observe the more important things such as Haqooq Ul Ibaad ! (rights of your family)
said that please keep in mind also the approval of your wife , if she understands your intention and approves then u will be more justified but if she does not , then i would stop right away , cause she has a right over you as she cares about your health .

What about as far as breaking the law? Assuming he-man (or anyone in the same situation really) if from the USA(or anywhere with similar laws reguarding steroids ) and he is not on somthing doctor perscribed , then it would be illegal .
Would this make it a sin?

well, if a muslim is supposed to follow the country's law as long as that law doesnt go against the religion, well what if in the USA, where taking steroids is illegal and it is not against the religion for a country to forbid steroids. yet someone in the USA still takes steroids, that is against the law of the country, and that law doesnt go against the religious law, so that would be a sin correct? weve gone over this in a lengthy thread already so no need to answer. christianity is the same way. yet i dont think its right either to say that a christian in the USA can not take steroids but a christian in mexico can take steroids. and yes, it is true steroids if taken properly dont hurt the body any more than other medicine. but other medicine is used to help the body get better from sickness and a by product of that may hurt the body. where as steroids are not taken to help the body get better from a sickness (in the usage we are talking), so it could be looked at that its hurting the body and a by product of that hurt is making stronger muscles. so to be safe, i would say not to take steroids and such but we really dont know. ive never used steroids, but ive used pro-hormones and i guess they could be lumped together as far as this issue is concerned. so really i dont know. i pray every day that sins i commit that i dont realize are sins will be forgiven...and i mean it when i pray it. so hopefully im forgiven for using supps.

just like u max i have never used AAS only PH ............... prolly will never touch real gear ................ but i dont consider this somethign to be of a magnitude to bevery sinful in nature there are other vast things that are way more wrong and unmoralistic ............. at the end its the person who makes the choice , and then he shall also know he is responsible for what choices he/she makes .
