Bongs and Pipes
| A hookah also known as a water-pipe, narghile, Qalyan, or shisha is a single or multi-stemmed instrument for smoking flavored tobacco in which the smoke is passed through a water basin (often glass based) before inhalation. |
The tobacco smoked is referred to as mu'assel, or "shisha."
The Origin of the hookah is at India, Persia, or at a transition point between the two. The word hookah is a derivative of "huqqa," which is what the Indians used to call it in the past.
According to author Cyril Elgood, who does not mention his source, it was Abul-Fath Gilani in 1588, a Persian physician at the Indian court of the Mughal emperor Akbar, who “first passed the smoke of tobacco through a small bowl of water to purify and cool the smoke and thus invented the hubble-bubble or hookah.
