Is Grapeseed Oil Permissible To Use?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Muftiyah Habiba Akhtar 


Is grapeseed oil permissible to use? It’s “a by-product of the winemaking industry” Does that mean it’s possible that it has traces of wine in it?

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


As you have explained, the grape seed oil is extracted from the winemaking process and is considered a by-product of grape wine-making.

Medical news today defines it as: “Grapeseed oil is a byproduct of winemaking. After the wine is made by pressing grapes, grape seeds are left behind. Grapeseed oil is extracted from these leftover grape seeds” (1)

The ruling for wine from grapes is unanimously forbidden and no amount of grape wine and regardless of whether it causes any intoxication or not, grape wine and its by-products are completely forbidden. (2)

Thus, in response to your query, it would not be permissible to consume grape seed oil.

Only Allah knows best

مسکرات کی دوقسمیں ہیں: سیال اور جامد

سیال کی دو قسمیں ہیں ؛ جن کی نجاست اور حرمت پر اتفاق ہے ۔ اس کی چارقسمیں ہیں :

انگور کی کچی شراب –

انگور کی پخت استراب ۔

(س) رطب کی شراب – زبیب کی شراب ۔

ان کا ایک قطرہ بھی حرام ہے ، اگر چہ اس سے نشہ نہ ہوتا ہو ، اس کا دواء میں استعمال کرنا بھی اکلا دخار ہا بہر حال ممنوع ہے ۔ خواہ اپنی اصلی حالت پر رہیں یا کسی قسم کے تصرف

سے دوسری ہیئت میں ہو جائیں۔
