Using products that contain haraam ingredients

Fatwaa ID: 1892

Salam whats the ruling on using products that have haram ingredients for external use in the shafi madhab?

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

It is not clear what you mean by haraam ingredients. Nevertheless, many haraam ingredients are impure. It is not permissible to use something that is impure even externally. One will be sinful if he does so.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
