Eyelash Extensions

Question:

Are false eyelashes allowed

These are eye lashes that are added on to existing eyelash

They last for about 2 weeks

Want to confirm if u can do wudu with them on

Answer:

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

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

In principle, it is permissible for one to wear synthetic eyelashes on condition that there is no intention of deception in wearing such eyelashes. A woman may wear them to beautify herself for her husband. It should however be noted that if glue is used, it will affect the validity of Wudhu due to water not being able to reach the actual eyelashes.

We advise you to use Kohl instead.

Nabi ﷺ said:

‏” عَلَيْكُمْ بِالإِثْمِدِ فَإِنَّهُ يَجْلُو الْبَصَرَ وَيُنْبِتُ الشَّعْرَ ‏”‏

Translation:

‏“You should use Ithmid (a type of kohl/Surmah), for it brightens (improves) the eyesight and makes the eyelashes grow.” [Tirmidhi 1757]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
