Ruling on using myrrh in treatment

Q 4: Is the myrrh sold in spice stores and used for treatment of some diseases Halal (lawful) or Haram (unlawful)? It is noteworthy that some people claim that angels do not enter a house in which there is myrrh.

A: The myrrh that is sold in spice stores is Halal; the basic principle is that such an ingredient is Halal as long as we do not know of any evidence that makes it Haram. The claim of some people that angels do not enter a house where there is myrrh is baseless and false.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
