Disposing mouthwash that contains alcohol

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I have brought home a mouth wash. I used it today in the morning then I read at the back that one of the ingredients to make mouth wash is alcohol. These days every medicinal syrup uses alcohol as one of its ingredients. Should I use this mouth wash or throw it away?


A: Throw it away.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
