    Question: Alcohol in Mouthwash, is it ok to use?

    Just curious if it was ok to use mouthwash with alcohol in it with alcohol being haram and what not. But the point is that I'm using it to clean my mouth out not to get drunk, but I'm still unsure if there's a specific ruling against it so if anyone could let me know would be most grateful.

    Wouldn't it come down to intention? You are not using it to drink, plus you are spitting it all out. It would be like using alcohol swabs for a cut, right?

    If you want to use mouthwash, use hydrogen peroxide! Good for your teeth, good for your mouth, CHEAPER than mouthwash!

    Hold about a cap-ful or so in your mouth for a few minutes to kill germs and whiten teeth

    If u can find an alternative, ie. alcohol-free mouth-wash, then u should use the alcohol-free one. And anyways, my dentist told me that alcohol free ones are the best. And no, i dont think its like using alcohol swabs for a cut because theres a much higher risk of u swallowing it right?

    Re: Question: Alcohol in Mouthwash, is it ok to use?

    There are quite a few available to get which don't have alcohol.. so if you feel doubt why not get those, because they are readily available so no need really for us to get the alcohol ones?
    I think you will find fatwa for both view to say "its okay" or "its not okay".. but the thing is, u are putting it in ur mouth so u dnt know if u might swallow a tiny bit from it without noticing :S

    Pour a glass of alcohol and drink it with the intention of drinking water is the same thing as above. Anything you doubt, you should not do it. You should check sister muslimmas thread reminder 10 or 11 i think.

    You'd have to ask mufti. But 90% of mouthwashes contain some alcohol - Dentyl Ph I think doesnt.

    Using mouthwash excessively is also not beneficial as the alcohol dries the mouth and the sugar in some mouthwashes could actually feed bacteria rather than cleanse the oral cavity.

    narrated ab-nu'man bin bashir ra i heard allahs messenger saying: both legal and illegal things are evident but in between them there are doubtful (unclear) things, and most of the people have no knowledge about them. so whosoever saves himself from these doubtful things , he saves his religion and his honour.

    -Bukhari

    ther are so mnay alternatives i.e. the ones that dont contain alcohol whu risk the alcohol ones enshallah..?

    Try Dentyl Ph or Dentiplus, both available at Bodycare and alcohol free.

    Re: Question: Alcohol in Mouthwash, is it ok to use?

    I had the same query a while back, and used the following fatwa for guidance.

    2) The alcohol used for commercial purposes is called ethanol. Most commercial brand mouthwashes and toothpastes used to treat mouth diseases and infections contain ethanol.

    · Ethanol is generally manufactured from corn, which undergoes fermentation through the medium of yeast, thus producing ethanol.

    · “Currently the main feedstock in the for the production of ethanol is corn. Approximately 10 liters of ethanol are produced from one bushel of corn (35 liters).”en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethanol

    · Some other feedstock or sources for ethanol are sorghum and pearl millet, however these sources constitute a fairly negligible amount of the feedstock, with corn being the major source.

    · According to the فقهاء ( Islaamic jurists ) the word خمر refers specifically to those substances derived from grapes and dates, which after undergoing certain processes intoxicate.

    فانّ اصل الخمر شرعا التمر و العنب على ما قال النبى صلى الله عليه و سلم " الخمر من هاتين الشجرتين".

    (Fathul Qadeer Vol. 9 Pg. 34)



    · Mufti Taqi Usmaani has stated that, those liquids derived from other sources besides grapes and dates, are considered permissible by Imaam Abu Hanifah and Imaam Abu Yusuf for medicinal use as long as it does not intoxicate.

    لانّ الاشربة المتخذة من غير العنب و التمر تحلّ عند ابى حنيفة و ابى يوسف بقصد التقوى او لتداوى ما لم تبلغ حد الاسكار.

    (Buhuth fi qadaaya fiqhiah muaasarah Pg.340)

    · Furthermore Mufti Taqi saheb states that those medicines that are derived from substances other than grapes and dates, for example toothpaste containing alcohol derived from corn (ethanol) for the purpose of combating gum diseases will be permissible to use solely on the grounds of medical need as long as it does not intoxicate.

    فان كانت الكحول المستعملة فى الادوية متخذة من غير العنب و التمر فان تناولها جائز فى مذهب ابى حنيفة و ابى يوسف رحمهما الله ما لم تبلغ حد الاسكار و يمكن ان يؤخذ بقولهما لحاجة التداوى.

    · Taking into consideration the above, it will be permissible to use toothpaste containing ethanol.

    Yeah, if it doesn't INTOXICATE you and it is NOT WINE, then its HALAL.
