Shampoo alcohol

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.


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 90:

O you who have believed! Khamr (all types of intoxicants), gambling, (ungodly) shrines, and divining devices are all abominable works of Shaitaan; therefore, refrain from these so that you may attain true success!


Thus what Allah and His Messenger (saws) have forbidden the believers is the consumption of all types of intoxicants, which effect the senses of the human beings; like wine, alcohol, drugs, etc.


Not all haraam things are impure for example: gold and silk are declared haraam for the believing men, but they are not impure. Similarly, most of the scholars of Islam are of the opinion that although the consumption of alcohol is haraam, alcohol by itself is not impure. Thus there is no harm if one uses products that contain alcohol like perfumes, shampoos, etc. provided the alcohol is not consumed and entered into the body which would cause one to loose ones senses.


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,
