I got one answer from one site : as follows:

A question raised by some people concerns the use of alcohol as a medicine. This question was answered by the Prophet (peace be on him) when a man told him that he used wine as a medicine. The Prophet (peace be on him) said, "It is not a medicine but a disease,`` (Reported by Muslim, Ahmad, Abu Daoud, and al-Tirmidhi.)


He also said, Allah has sent down the disease and the cure, and for every disease there is a cure. So take medicine but do not use anything haram as medicine. (Reported by Abu-Daoud.)

thank you brother pls give me answer

Alcohol Medicine

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Fiqh-us-Sunnah Fiqh 4.6

The majority of scholars are of the opinion that the use of intoxicants and other prohibited things as medicine, is unlawful. They base their arguments on the following guidance:


Wa'il ibn Hujr al-Hadrami reported that, "Tariq ibn Suwaid asked the Prophet (saws) if he could use alcohol as medicine. The Prophet (saws) replied: 'It is not a cure, but a disease'.'' (Related by Muslim, Abu Daw'ud, and Tirmidhi.)


Umm Salamah, the wife of the Prophet (saws) reports that he (saws) once said: "Allah has not placed a cure for your diseases in things that He has forbidden for you.'' (Related by Baihaqi and Ibn Hibban. Bukhari has also related the same hadith on the authority of Ibn Mas'ud.)


Abu ad-Darda reported that the Prophet (saws) said: "Allah has sent down both the malady and its remedy. For every disease He has created a cure. So seek medical treatment, but never with something the use of which Allah has prohibited.'' (Related by Abu Daw'ud.)


Abu Hurairah narrated: "The Messenger of Allah (saws) prohibited the use of a harmful medicine, namely, poison."( Related by Ahmad, Muslim, Tirmidhi, and Ibn Majah.)


Some amongst the scholars and jurists in Islam are of the opinion that if one has tried his absolute best and is unable to find a lawful cure and remedy, and if one in absolute and extreme cases uses few unnoticeable drops of alcohol which are a part of a compound medicine that cannot induce intoxication, provided one has absolutely no intention of getting intoxicated and transgressing the prescribed bounds of Allah; then the consumption of such medicine as an absolute last resort and only as much as is required would be an admissible excuse in the Court of the Merciful and Forgiving Lord.


The scholars who have deemed such medicine permissible base their opinion on this evidence:


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 173:

173 He hath only forbidden you dead meat, and blood, and the flesh of swine, and that on which any other name hath been invoked besides that of Allah; but if one is forced by necessity without wilful disobedience nor transgressing due limits then is he guiltless. For Allah is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful.


That one who, in absolute necessity if forced by hunger or fears death by starvation consumes something of the unlawful, without willfull disobedience or transgression, he will find his Lord Forgiving and Merciful.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.



Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
