As Salamu aleykum. I work as a doctor in a hospital. We usually use liquids with ethanol for disinfection. My question is: Is industrially fabricated ethanol also najis in the Shafi'i madhhab?. May Allahu subhanahu wa ta3ala reward you. Fi amaniLlah.
Walaykumusalaam warahmatullahi wabarakaatuh,
Both grain-derived and synthetically-derived ethanol are impure in our school.
