Drinking alcohol isn't permissible but in case it touches the body or clothing, how should it be cleaned up? Does it make a person impure?


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful



Alcohol is impure and if it touches the clothes, it must be removed by washing thrice.[1]


Only Allah knows best
