The following is a summary translation taken from

Question: May Allah reward you with good and bless you Sheikh, the questioner says, What is the ruling on using manufactured (false) eyelashes as a beautification for the husband?

Answer:(Sheikh Uthamin) Manufactured eyelashes are not permissible because it resembles extensions, meaning hair extensions. And the Messenger of Allah peace and blessings are upon him cursed the one who puts in extensions and the one who has it done. Therefore these lashes, if they are like what I picture now, that it is to place black thread resembling hair onto the lashes so that the lashes appear full and they beautify the eyes, if it is like this then this are the extensions that the one who does this is cursed by the Messenger of Allah peace and blessings are upon him. But if what is meant is to use eyeliner then this is not prohibited.

Asalamualeikum wa rahmatullahi wa baraktu.


Ibn Umar reported that the Messenger  of Allah said:

"He who dresses for ostentation"

By following the seven principles above, Insha-allah, a woman will satisfy all the necessary requirements for proper Islamic dress. It should be noted that some of these principles also apply to mens dress, and clearly some would apply not only to what a woman wears in public, but also to what she wears in the privacy of her own home or in the homes of her relatives or her Muslim sisters.

There are however, some additional prohibitions regarding personal appearance of which our Muslim sisters should be aware. These prohibitions have to do with changes made to the appearance which are regarded as unacceptable alterations to Allaah's creation, namely wearing wigs, plucking facial hair, filing teeth and getting tattoos.

Asmaa related that: "A woman asked the Prophet : "Messenger of Allaah, my daughter had smallpox, and as a result her hair fall out. She has recently been married. Can I get her a wig?" He answered: "Allaah has cursed the maker and the wearer of a wig."

Abdullah ibn Masood : said that Allaah has cursed tattooers and those who are tattooed, and those women who have their teeth filed for beauty and those who have their hair plucked and thus alter Allaah's creation. A woman asked him: "What is all this?" He replied: "Should I not curse the one whom Allaah's Messenger  has cursed? And it is in the Book of Allaah." She said: "I read the Qur'an from cover to cover but did not find that in it (ie. prohibition of tattooing, filling the teeth and plucking facial hair)." He said: "If you had read it thoroughly, you would have found it." Allaah says: "Whatever Allaah's Messenger : gives you, take it, and whatever he has forbidden, refrain from it." (Muslim)

This Hadeeth is particularly significant for us, because it not only informs us of something which the Prophet  found hateful, it also makes it perfectly clear that, in matters of religion, the commands of the Prophet  are as binding on us as the commands of Allaah.

In obeying Allaah and His Messenger , we can hope to be of those who are successful, tasting of the fruits of paradise. If however, we should disobey Allaah and do things prohibited by him (and we seek refuge with Him from that), then we will taste His wrath: In the case of a woman who does something forbidden by Allaah or His Messenger , she and her husband or guardian who permitted her to do the forbidden thing are cursed by Allah. We are advised in the Qur'an to:

"... ward off from yourselves and your families a fire whereof the fuel is men and stones..." (Lxvi:6)

The Prophet  also said:

"All of you are guardians. The man is a guardian of and is responsible for his womenfolk on the Day of Judgement."

May Allaah open our hearts to the guidance, strengthen us that we may be obedient to Him and His Messenger  and save us from the punishment of Hell fire.

Allah is most Knowledgeable. And all praise belongs to Allaah, the Lord of the Worlds

Artificial Fingernails and Eyelashes

By Al-Alamah, Al-Faqeeh Abdur Rahman ibn Nasr Al-Barrak (may Allah preserve

Question: What is the verdict on wearing artificial fingernails and
eyelashes? Is this act considered among the acts of joining false hair with
real hair?

Answer: Adding synthetic fingernails disagrees with the sunnah and (fitrah)
natural disposition. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said,

خمس من الفطرة

There are five things among the Fitrah

Following these words, he (peace and blessings be upon him) mentioned
clipping the fingernails. Also He (peace and blessings be upon him)
mentioned when the nails must be clipped; and that they shouldnt grow
unclipped beyond forty days. Intentionally extending the fingernails causes
a person to resemble an animal or disbeliever. This act is disfeaturing for
a woman and not beauty. When a woman adds fake nails this shows she has a
corrupt fitrah and decreased intellect.

Similarly, adding synthetic eyelashes resembles the disbelievers and is
among the acts of joining false hair with real hair. I consider both of
these actions to be impermissible. And Allah knows best.
