I would like to know whether we as Muslims could or should not use these products as they are from dead sea in โ€˜Israelโ€™?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Someone asked me whether the products from the Dead Sea in Israel are prohibited from use by Muslims? There are products such as skin care creams, muds, mineral salt etc.

I would like to know whether we as Muslims could or should not use these products as they are from dead sea in โ€˜Israelโ€™.ย 

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salฤmu โ€˜alaykum wa-rahmatullฤhi wa-barakฤtuh.

According to many commentators of the Quran and historians alike, the Dead Sea is the final resting place of the perished nation of Lut (Peace be upon him).[i]ย  The famous commentator Ibn โ€˜Aashur (Allah have mercy upon him) explicitly states that the remains and ruins of the people of Sodom are visible on the seabed of the Dead Sea.ย 

The Prophet (salutations and blessings be upon him) urged his companions not to go into the areas upon which the punishment of Allah descended.ย  Let alone entering and dwelling such areas, the Prophet (salutations and blessings peace be upon him) further instructed his companions to empty all the containers of water gathered from the area.ย  He then ordered them not to consume the dough kneaded from the water and instead ordered them to give it to their camels.[ii]ย 

The esteemed commentator of Sahih al-Bukhari, Ibn Hajr al-Asqalaani (may Allah have mercy on him) cites the following narration in his commentary:

A man came into the presence of the Prophet (salutations and peace be upon him) and presented a ring he found in the ruins of the people of Thamud.ย  The Prophet evaded the offer and concealed his eyes from even witnessing the ring.ย  He then ordered the man to throw the ring away.โ€[iii]

The renown Hanafi jurist Ibn Abidin (Allah have mercy upon him) states that it will be disliked to use the water and mud of all those areas upon which the punishment of Allah the Almighty descended.[iv] ย 

Thus, to use cosmetics and other products made from the Dead Sea will be disliked.ย  One should abstain from all things which near oneself to the punishment of Allah the Almighty.ย 

And Allah Taโ€™ฤla Knows Best
