Permissable to consume alcoholic remedies?


Asaalamu alaikum.
Would you be able to tell me if it’s halal to consume herbs in medicinal alcohol and tinctures? My mom bought some kind of remedies from Montenegro from a woman named [private]. [To use for different sicknesses]


If the effect of alcohol in medicine can be seen in the form of intoxication, then it is haram, but if no effect is seen and alcohol is added as a preservative, then there is nothing wrong with it, because alcohol content does not have any effect. In your case we see that alcohol in herbs is in the form and amount of intoxication, therefore it is haram.
