Imam Sideeq Hassan Khan mentioned a beautiful point when refuting those who say that everything that is prohibited is Impure.

He said:

“If it was that the mere prohibition of something necessitates its impurity, then similar to the statement of Allah Ta’alaa:

حُرِّمَتْ عَلَيْكُمْ أُمَّهَاتُكُمْ

Prohibited upon you are your mothers


Until the end of the verse,

(Then similar to it) would be a proof upon the impurity of the aforementioned females in the verse!!”

[Ar Rawdatun Nadiyaa 1/80]

Thus alcohol, dead meat, and blood aren’t impure due to the fact that they are prohibited to consume.
