Abstract: Narcotic drugs have been a problem for human communities for a long time. The problem has become even worse since its use has become broad and people can provide it manually and by industrial equipment. Regarding the depth of its teachings, Islam has focused its main attention on human and his/her well-being both in this and the other worlds. Islam has acknowledged and valued wisdom more than any other schools of thoughts and has never admitted inflicting harm on such a precious gold, including the harmful effects of the narcotic drugs that influences on the wisdom and psych of humans; therefore, Islam has seriously antagonized and prohibited this act and it has been certainly known as a forbidden act by the Islam. This article studied jurisprudential and legal foundations of prohibition of narcotic drugs, which are included in cases Islam has prohibited. All the following concepts approve the above claims and the authors of this article have studied them: Unjust enrichment, avoiding from unclearness and wickedness, abstaining from any evil acts and narcotic drugs use as a leader of all evil deeds, and destroying oneself. Furthermore, expanding, extending and presenting the foundation of the prohibition of narcotic drugs can help authorities with their mission in campaigning against such an evil phenomenon. The authorities will be able to prioritize fighting against drugs, and finally eradicate them with peace of mind and easefully with accessing to legitimate authorization and religious orders based on the prohibition of the narcotic drugs in Islam.
