Question:

Is there any detestability in smoking a cigarette while in ihram?

Answer:

It is makruh to smoke a cigarette whether a person is in ihram or not,
and more makrBh when in ihram. It is therefore essential for a person
to abstain from it. Those who – in the past – said that it is permissible,
said so because its harms and wastage of money had not been so
apparent. Furthermore, most people are offended by its smell. This is
why we are prohibited from going to the masjid after consuming
sharp-smelling foods [such as garlic and onions].

Fatawa Mahm’diyyah:

It is makruh to smoke a cigarette. It is prohibited to enter a masjid
without first washing and cleaning one’s mouth for it will cause
inconvenience to others.1

Allah ta‛ala knows best.
