Q: Dear respected Mufti Saab, I wanted to ask that if the dishwashing washing tablet contains glycerin along with alcohol (and other impure substances), are dishes that are washed impure. The machine does have a rinse cycle but then the ‘rinse aid’ that too if it contains glycerin along with alcohol or other impure ingredients, are dishes washed with it impure? According to the website , http://www.info-pg.com, dishwasher tablets and ‘rinse aid’ products do contain glycerin, alcohol ( not sure if all do but some products that I’ve checked do).
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
