Toothpaste with alcohol

Fatwaa ID: 317

Question:
السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته Mufti Sahab

Is it permissible to use toothpaste with 0.9% alcohol in it?

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

Alcohol, even a drop of it, is haraam and najis. It is not permissible to use toothpaste that has alcohol in it, irrespective of how minute the amount is. There are enough alcohol-free alternatives.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
