Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

Dear questioner, we would like to thank you for the great confidence you place in us, and we implore Allah Almighty to help us serve His cause and render our work for His Sake.

In his response to your question, Sheikh Muhammad Nur Abdullah, President of the ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) and member of the Fiqh Council ofNorth America, states:

“It has not been scientifically proven to be harmful, otherwise they would have to put a notification of that. But if it is a bit harmful and its benefit outweighs the harms, it is still allowed. You should also know that if something is declared “allowed” it means it is optional, so you can discontinue using it with no problem.”
