Using Chemical Alcohol


Salaam, I am 25yrs old male quite bald on my crown and want to get married soon. Alhamdulillah I pray 5 times a day, as a muslim can i use minioxidil (topical hair growth solution) contains alcohol 45% and other elements of hair growth. It works cos I have used in the past. Please let me know. Jazakallah salaam


Ayatullah Sistani’s office replied: If its the chemical/industrial alcohol, it can be used and it is paak.
