I was looking for Alcohol Free aftershave for my husband

Question

I was looking for Alcohol Free aftershave for my husband and have found one that says alcohol has been denaturalised.  Is it OK to use this aftershave or is it still haram?

Answer

Muhtaram / Muhtaramah

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.

 

If the alcohol is not from grapes or dates extract, it is permissible.

Generally, all perfumes contain synthetic alcohol and therefore permissible for external use.

 

And Allah knows best
