The ruling on artificial eyelashes

Respected Shaykh, assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. What is the ruling on eyelashes that are worn on top of one’s natural eyelashes, and not the ones that are added [as extensions] to one’s original lashes? حكم الرموش الصناعية


Praise be to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and his companions.   I fear that it may be a form of the prohibited extensions that Allah has cursed the doer of, as has been reported from the Prophet (peace be upon him), “Allah has cursed such a lady as lengthens [her or someone else’s] hair artificially, or gets it lengthened,” which is on the authority of a group of the Companions (may Allah be pleased with them); among them `A’ishah, Asma’ and Ibn `Umar. All of these hadiths are in the Sahihs of Bukhari and Muslim.   Furthermore, a fact that is not hidden is that in doing this, there is deception, and along with that there may be covering up reality and cheating. So I advise my sisters to avoid these means of beautifying, and to suffice with what is permissible.   “…And the garment of taqwa, that is best…” [Al-A`raf 7:26]

  Your brother,

Dr. Khalid al-Muslih
