Can we use perfumes that have alcohol in them? And can we use soaps that have been derived from animal fats and other things of that nature?

00:00:13--> 00:00:55

And come to Lao Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that hum, intoxicants are nudges, fetched any boo, be distinct from it and the key word is hunger, not alcohol. Now we do know from a scientific process that alcohol is one of the things that gives this inhibition and you know, inebriate the mind which is the word hum Do you have mineral after it wipes away your mind, it covers your mind.

It is no longer an animal byproduct. It's something that's entirely different as to where it is initially initiated from. And many of the older man they refer to it as a part of it's the hillock. It's been used up in its normal process to becoming an entirely new product.
