Hennah and kuhl don’t affect wudu

Home / Q&A / Hennah and kuhl don’t affect wudu


Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. Jazaki Allahu khair for taking the time to answer our questions.

If I use eyeliner which is waterproof and later want to renew my wudu, do I need to remove the eyeliner? Some of it smudges around my eyes and spreads over the skin of the upper and lower lids. Does this prevent wudu from being valid?

Zaynab El-Kateb:

Sheikh Ibn Baz said that kuhl and henna does not affect the wudu because they are sort of dye, there is no solid body or solid layer preventing the water from reaching the skin. But if it has a solid layer which prevent the water then it has to be removed before wudu.
