Colon cleansing

Fatwaa ID: 2075

Question:
Salam
Are we allowed to do colon cleansing

Answer:
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

A colon cleansing is a preparational procedure for medical procedures. It is also used for other purposes by alternative medicine practitioners. It is permissible to undergo colon cleansing provided that it is necessary or there is genuine benefit in doing it. This should be done under the prescription and guidance of an experienced medical practitioner.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
