The Lajnah ad-Da’imah stated:

“Chemistry taught at schools nowadays is the study of the analysis of materials and the elements composing them or changing elements into substances with different characteristics via interactions and equations. Chemistry is a real science and is different from alchemy which is all about deceit and falsehood. So chemistry is not a type of magic which the texts of the Qur’an and Sunnah (whatever is reported from the Prophet) prohibit and warn against.” End quote. [Reference]
