What is the ruling of making istinja with red bull when there is no water available? Answer: ﺑﺴﻢ اﷲ اﻟﺮﺣﻤﻦ اﻟﺮﺣﯿﻢ In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
It is permissible to make istinja with any liquid beside water, e.g. juice, soda, or redbull, regardless whether water is available or not because the purpose of istinja is to remove impurity, and that can also be achieved through non-water liquids. Nevertheless, it is best to use water.
