    Title: Use of vegetables for medication

    Question: I wanted to ask if it is prohibited to use fruits/vegetables on feet. For example, we use lemon on feet to remove sun tan. Is it a sin to do the same?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 890/687/D=1434) As the use of fruits is lawful for diet it is also lawful to apply as medicine. You may use it externally and eternally for medication. So you may apply lemon or onion in your feet in order to remove the sun tan.
