Alcohol based hand sanitizers

Q: I recently without knowledge used a hand sanitizer that was alcohol based. Are these sanitizer halaal or haraam? If haraam, what should I do after I had used it?


A: It is better to wash the hands afterwards though it will not be haraam to use it.

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