Is it permissible to tint the eyelashes?


Can you tint your eyelashes?


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

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

An eyelash tint consists of adding a special dye to your eyelashes, giving you weeks of dark, full lashes without the assistance of mascara.

It is permissible to tint one’s eyelashes any colour besides black as long as the tint is water permeable and does not contain any impure ingredients. [1]


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

البحر الرائق شرح كنز الدقائق (22/ 88) [1]

وَلَا بَأْسَ بِخِضَابِ الرَّأْسِ وَاللِّحْيَةِ بِالْحِنَّاءِ وَالْوَشْمَةِ لِلرِّجَالِ وَالنِّسَاءِ لِأَنَّ ذَلِكَ سَبَبٌ لِزِيَادَةِ الرَّغْبَةِ وَالْمَحَبَّةِ بَيْنَ الزَّوْجَيْنِ


الدر المختار وحاشية ابن عابدين (رد المحتار) (6/ 756)

 ومذهبنا أن الصبغ بالحناء والوسمة حسن كما في الخانية قال النووي: ومذهبنا استحباب خضاب الشيب للرجل والمرأة بصفرة أو حمرة وتحريم خضابه بالسواد على الأصح لقوله - عليه الصلاة والسلام - «غيروا هذا الشيب واجتنبوا السواد»


الفتاوى الهندية (44/ 48)

جُنُبٌ اخْتَضَبَ وَاخْتَضَبَتْ امْرَأَتُهُ بِذَلِكَ الْخِضَابِ قَالَ أَبُو يُوسُفَ رَحِمَهُ اللَّهُ تَعَالَى لَا بَأْسَ بِهِ وَلَا تُصَلِّي فِيهِ وَإِنْ كَانَ الْجُنُبُ قَدْ غَسَلَ مَوْضِعَ الْخِضَابِ فَلَا بَأْسَ بِأَنْ تُصَلِّيَ فِيهِ كَذَا فِي فَتَاوَى قَاضِي خَانْ
