Wudu with Mascara On

Wudu with mascara on is one of the important topics regarding wudu for Muslim women. Mascara is a cosmetic that is usually used to beautify the eyes. That's why she cannot be separated from the lives of several Muslim women because she can beautify their appearance. But the question is: can you do wudu with mascara on?

Whatever your reason for opening this article, I'm pretty sure you're looking for an explanation about wudu with mascara on. I'm not going to let you down today because that's what I'm going to explain now. So, you must read this article to the end!

Is Mascara Allowed in Islam?

Hi! At the beginning of this discussion, I will explain one important thing about mascara that you must understand: is mascara allowed in Islam? I want you to understand that first because that is the basic thing about the legality of mascara in Islam that has to be well understood.

In the first paragraph I explained that makara is a cosmetic used to beautify the eyes. The purpose of Muslim women wearing mascara is to make them look beautiful. That's perfectly normal. No one has the right to forbid women to look beautiful.

But, is wearing mascara allowed in Islam?

Okay! Before I explain the answer to this question, pay attention to the hadith below!

عَنْ جَابِرٍ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : إِنَّ اللهَ تَعَالَى جَمِيْلٌ يُحِبُّ الجَمَالَ ، وَيُحِبُّ مَعَالِيَ الْأَخْلَاق ِوَيَكْرَهُ سَفْسَافَهَا

From Jabir, he said, "The Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, "Verily Allah is a Most Beautiful God Who loves beauty, noble ethics, and hates bad ethics.

In the hadith above, it is explained that Allah is the Most Beautiful God. He loves beauty, good ethics, and hates bad ethics. If He loves beauty, then He loves everything that is beautiful and everything that makes beauty. Of course, this is all provided that it does not conflict with Islamic teachings.

Now, if we use the hadith above as a basis for answering this question, then the answer is "Yes. Mascara is allowed in Islam if it is not against Islamic teachings.”

Maybe now you are wondering: is there a mascara that is against Islam? Of course, it exists. Some examples are as follows:

  • Mascara obtained by stealing.
  • Wearing mascara with the aim of being arrogant and so on.

We don't need to argue about these two things. Everything (including mascara) that is obtained by stealing is haram. And all things done for vanity (including wearing mascara) are haram.

Does Mascara Prevent Water from Reaching Your Skin?

Now I'm going to explain something that is also very important related to the main topic in this discussion: does mascara block water from reaching your skin? You have to understand that well because wudu is washing and wiping various parts of the body with wudu water. If the water doesn't reach your skin, then the washing and rubbing that you do cannot be called wudu.

In addition to the reasons above, another reason is because there are hadiths that specifically require Muslims to complete wudu. What is meant by perfecting wudu is carrying out all the obligations in wudu. There should not be a bit of skin that must be washed and rubbed in wudu that is not exposed to water. Pay attention to the hadith below!

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ ، أَنَّهُ رَأَى قَوْماً يَتَوَضَّؤُوْنَ مِنَ الْمِطْهَرَةِ . فَقَالَ : أَسْبِغُوا الْوُضُوءَ . فَإِنِّي سَمِعْتُ أَبَا الْقَاسِمِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ : وَيْلٌ لِلْعَرَاقِيبِ مِنَ النَّارِ

From Abu Hurairah radliyallahu anhu, he saw people doing wudu with water from something used for wudu. He then said, “Perfect wudu. I have actually heard Abu al-Qasim (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alahi wa sallam say, “The Wail Valley in Hell is for the veins above the heels that are not washed with water.”

The hadith above explains that if there are tendons or skin above our heels that are not touched by wudu water, then the washing and rubbing that we do cannot be called wudu. It is disastrous for us because the small hadas in our body have not been removed. If the small hadas in our bodies have not been removed, we cannot perform acts of worship that require us to have wudu while performing them, such as praying. That is the urgency for us to understand whether mascara blocks water from reaching the skin or not.

In general, there are two types of mascara:

  • 1. Mascara that has thickness and forms layers.
  • 2. Mascara that has no thickness and does not form layers.

Now, if you ask me, “Does mascara block water from reaching the skin or not?”, then the answer is as follows:

Mascara that has thickness and forms a layer can block water from reaching the skin. Whereas mascara that doesn't have thickness and doesn't form layers can't block water from reaching the skin.

Can You Do Wudu with Mascara On?

Now I'm going to explain the main topic in this discussion: can you do wudu with mascara on? I want you to understand the explanation below so well that there are no more questions about it in your mind—but if you still have other questions about it, please write them in the comments!

Before I explain the answer to that question, I want you to understand the two types of mascara that I have explained in the previous few paragraphs once again. That will help you understand the answer easily.

Now, if you ask me, “Can you do wudu with mascara on?”, the answer would be the following:

  • If the mascara you use is thick and forms a layer, then you can't do wudu with mascara on because it can block water from reaching your skin.
  • If the mascara you use is not thick and doesn't form a layer, then you can do wudu with mascara on because it can't block the water from reaching the skin.
