The Ruling on Using Alcohol as a Medicine
Question:

Is it permissible for a believing person to drink alcohol, claiming it to be a treatment for pain?
Answer:

Alcohol is forbidden and it is not permissible to use it as a medicine; the Prophet (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam) said:

"O servants of Allaah! Seek treatment, but do not seek treatment with that which is forbidden. For Allaah has not placed a cure for my people in that which has been forbidden."
