As Salaamu-alaikum Moulana,

Is it permissible to own a tobacco store? Previously, Ulema have passed a fatwa stating that smoking, owning & trading was allowed, however makruh, I believe that due to recent scientific and medical evidence of the fact that smoking does indeed cause harm to ones self and others,in the form of many incurable diseases, it is now HARAAM to smoke or trade, please advise,
