بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 767/767=J)


If the above mentioned alcohols are prepared by vegetables or petrol (other then grapes and dates) then the perfumes containing such alcohols are allowed and salah with such perfumes will be valid. But, if the alcohol is prepared by grapes or dates then it is impure and every perfume or body spray containing it will be unlawful and salah will be invalid with it if it is in a quantity which prevents salah.
