"During fasting, Muslims have to abstain from eating and drinking. But an Egyptian Scholar Jama Al Bana (Founder of 'Egypt's Brotherhood') has claimed, "smoking is not explicily prohibited in the Holy Quran. Hence smoking does't spoil fasting". Any comment..?

This is not true...smoking is not allowed in Islam in the first place,let alone during Fasting!! During fasting we not only abstain from eating and drinking but also we are not allowed to use abusive language etc.There so many things not mentioned in Quran but we do not do during fasting,example brushing you teeth in the middle of the day.
