[Treatment for under eye pigmentation containing salmon sperm]
Asalam alaikum mufti sahib, a sister is enquiring re above treatment will it be permissible to have as in the ingredients it contains salmon sperm. She wants it done for very dark under eye circles. Jazakallahu khaira

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

In principle, sperm is najis/impure according to the Hanafi legal school, irrespective of which animal it comes from. The usage of something that is haraam or najis is impermissible. Accordingly, it will not be permissible to undergo the above treatment. One may consider alternatives that do not contain any haraam ingredient.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
