Question:

Is homeopathic medicine halal?

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Answer:

Homeopathic medicines would be haram as long as they do not contain anything harams such as alcohol, or any other intoxicant. If it is the only means and there is no other alternative, then it would be permissible. [Al Qawaa’idu Fiqhiyya- Page 16 “Necessities legalize prohibitions]

It is absolutely necessary to explore all the other avenues in medicine when homeopathic becomes an absolute necessity.

Only Allah knows best
