A History of Hookahs...

Allumeuse de Narghile by Jean-Leon Gerome

Hookahs most likely originated in the north western provinces of India along the border of Pakistan nearly a millennia ago. These hookahs were simple, primitive, and rugged in design, usually made from a coconut shell base and tube with a head attached. They were originally designed to smoke opium and hashish. The hookah made its way through the Persian Kingdom, which also included Pakistan, Afghanistan, much of Middle Asia and Arab parts of Northern Africa. The first tobacco used in a hookah was called tombeik. Tombeik is a dark tobacco grown in modern day Iran. The tombeik was rinsed and packed in the large older style bowls where hot coals were applied directly to the wet tombeik, giving it a strong flavor.
About 500 years ago, the hookah made its way into Turkey. There, it endured a surge of popularity among the upper class and intellectuals and changed in design. The hookah grew in size and complexity and became similar to the designs we are more familiar with today. Brass and glass were added to the design and less wood was used. Intricate paintings and mosaics were added for beauty and elegance. The popularity of hookahs grew with hookah coffee shops in Turk society two to three centuries ago. A hookah bar waiter was treated similar to a chef because of the preparation for hookah smoking. The packing and moisture was a skill, and it was considered rude to touch the coals. Hookah smoking migrated south into the Arab world from Turkey to Lebanon and Syria where it got the name argile. It then spread into Egypt and Morocco, where it is known as shisha. It is also know as the hubble bubble in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Today, hookah bars are social places where many people get together to discuss politics and local events.
Most hookah smoking countries serve Naklia shisha. Naklia shisha is a combination of tobaccos, honey molasses and dried fruit. The smoke is filtered through ice cold water to make the smoke cool and soothing.
Hookahs began growing in popularity in the United States and Europe during the 60's and have become increasingly popular ever since.
