As salaam alaykum warahamatulah. Kindly help us with the Islamic rulings on using hand sanitizer containing certain percentage of alcohol mostly 70-100% . Is it permissible to use it during this epidemic situation cos it’s becoming mandatory to use before gaining entrance to some locations.
This is similar to question 27.
Answer to Question 31
It is better avoided if one has alternatives.
In Addition, it has been established that soaps also have same ability.
Except if one is compelled and one has no alternative, it is better avoided
