Is homeopathy halal for chronic disease


I am murid. I found fatwa that using homeopathy is haram in internet,as it’s medicine contains alcohol and other things. Is it so? My son has chronic disease,and I found that there is no cure elsewhere. I truly believe that cure is from Allah. Please guide me.


It is permissible to use homeopathic medicine if a competent Muslim doctor is of the opinion that there is no alternative procedure available. (al-Radd al-Mukhtar, Vol 6, p. 389).

 كَذَا كُلُّ تَدَاوٍ لَا يَجُوزُ إلَّا بِطَاهِرٍ وَجَوَّزَهُ فِي النِّهَايَةِ بِمُحَرَّمٍ إذَا أَخْبَرَهُ طَبِيبٌ مُسْلِمٌ أَنَّ فِيهِ شِفَاءً وَلَمْ يَجِدْ مُبَاحًا يَقُومُ مَقَامَهُ (الدر المختار من الشامي ج 6 ص 389 أيج أيم سعيد)
