You need to buy hookah coals to technically night it. You dont exactly light it, you put foil over the bowl you put the tobacco in and poke holes and throw the coal on. there are videos on youtube on how to do this ill post a link

EDIT: here you go http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_BCJ1xOQTE

you will need a decent hookah coal. There's no way around it.If you have a local middle eastern market or deli, they may have what you need. Good luck!

no not really... using any other kind of coal (like BBQ) could kill you because of the carbon monoxide. Do some research about possible smoke shops in your town that carry hookahs or shisha. most likely they will carry coals too

No alternatives unless you want horrible poisonous fumes going into your body. Just look for smoke shops in your area and or actually hookah stores/lounges and drive over and pick up some coals. Also make small talk with the people there and you can learn a lot from the people who are around it everyday.

just contact one of the many vendors on the fourms and they should have prices for good coals, on hookah-shisha.com a roll of quick lights are only about 2 bucks

I agree. DO NOT USE BBQ COALS!! Contact one of the online retailers, or visit an Arabian store in your neighborhood.

Hooray! Yet another thread entitled Help! LOL Maybe "How do I light this tobacco" or something similar would have been way more helpful.

Like everyone else said you need to get some charcoals made for the hookah.
