Honestly sister, I don't have proof, and I really do not want to do the research but I'm sure it's not haraam,. Or else we would have known already.
Remember everything is Halal until proven Haraam. Except when it comes to Ibadah.

P.S. I'm extremely bored, better go to sleep.

Question :

I have been advised not to use Listerine, a kind of mouthwash, because it contains some form of alcohol. However, if the kind of alcohol it contains is not an intoxicant, is there some other reason for its prohibition or would it be permissible to use it?


Answer :

Praise be to Allaah.

If the alcohol which this mouthwash contains is not intoxicating, then it is ok. to use it, so long as it is not harmful, because what is haraam is only that which is intoxicating.

Shaykh Sa’d al-Humayd.

In this case we should look at the drink as a whole: if a lot of it causes intoxication then a little of it is haraam.

Okay sis chill there for a second now no need to go all you know.The active ingredients are menthol, thymol, methyl salicylate, and eucalyptol, all of which are structural isomers. While not listed as an active ingredient, ethanol or grain alcohol is present in concentrations between 21 and 26% w/v. This accounts for a large part of Listerine's antibiotic activity.Alcohol, causes an easier reception of carcinogens

Question :




What is the ruling on medicines that contain a percentage of alcohol?.
Answer :




Praise be to Allaah.


It is not permissible to mix medicines with alcohol, because alcohol must be thrown away. It was narrated that Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri said: We had some wine belonging to an orphan, and when al-Maa’idah was revealed (i.e., the prohibition of khamr or alcohol), I asked the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) about it and I said, “It belongs to the orphan.” He said: “Pour it away.”

Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 1263; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi.



Secondly:



If the medicine is mixed with alcohol, and the percentage of alcohol is so great that this medicine is intoxicating, then it is khamr and it is haraam to take it.



If the percentage of alcohol is very low and it does not intoxicate, then it is permissible to take it.



It says in Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah (22/110):



It is not permissible to mix medicines with intoxicants, but if it is mixed with alcohol, if drinking a lot of it will cause intoxication, it is haraam to handle it and drink it, whether a small amount or a large amount. If drinking a lot of it will not cause intoxication, then it is permissible to handle it and drink it. End quote.



Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said:



With regard to some medicines that contain alcohol, if the effect of the alcohol in the medicine can be seen in the form of intoxication, then it is haraam, but if no effect is seen, and the alcohol is only added to it as a preservative, then there is nothing wrong with it, because the alcoholic content does not have any effect. End quote.



Liqaa’aat il-Baab il-Maftoohah, 3/231.

Seeing as the topic of the thread miraculously changed from discussing the proportions of alcohol in products to what is haram and what isn't, I thought it would be best if split up the thread.

Find the discussion oh Haram and Halal Here.

I have also changed the titles of the threads to make them more comprehensive as to what they discuss.

can a mod or someone just post an underlying statement saying, it's not advisable to take listerine as there are alternatives and that any life (meat) taken without permission from Allah (dua) is haraam. Because this thread and the other one are getting pretty silly now.

Well well I didn't know that mouthwash could also pose a prob for Haram and Halal. Well By reading some posts, ya If the product is not intoxicating then probably it's not Haram. Well me better go look for something which is non alcohol....:phew
