ummtaalib Posted May 19, 2014 Report Share Posted May 19, 2014 Split from HERE Alhamdulillah found the following answers which covers the issue of wearing makeup with haram ingredients: Question What is the Islamic views of Muslims using cosmetics, e.g. lipstick, foundation, perfume, after-shave, etc.or even consuming food that has traces (not the main ingredient) of alcohol in them. Answer Question 6(a) Principally, if the alcohol is extracted from grapes or dates it is not permissible. Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, “Khamr (wine) is from these two trees, dates and grapes.” (Mishkãt p. 317). Furthermore, Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, ‘Alcohol itself is prohibited and intoxication in every other beverage.’ (Hidaaya vol. 4 p. 497). However, if the alcohol in foods is not from dates or grape extract but from, for example, ethanol which is fermented from sugar cane mollasses and does not intoxicate, then it is permissible. Question 6 (b) A: It is not permissible to use cosmetics that contain alcohol from grapes or date extracts. Such cosmetics are impure and Salaat with it is invalid. However, if the alcohol is synthetic, it is pure and permissible to use. Salaat without washing off such cosmetics will be valid. Sometimes, it becomes difficult to differentiate between genuine and synthetic alcohol. Thus, to be on the safe side, one should rather prefer using cosmetics that are labelled as ‘alcohol-free’, especially when such cosmetics are easily available. By Mufti Ebrahim Desai askimam Question Will the wearing of lipstick or any other type of make up break the fast. Please specify which types of make up Answer Lipstick and make up do not break the fast. However, you should consider two issues:a) Many of these products contain Haraam and impure ingredients. In such a case, it will not be permissible to use such a make up.b) Many of such products prevent water from reaching the skin. In such a case the Wudhu or Ghusl performed with such make up on will not be valid. Nevertheless, the fast is not broken. and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best Moulana Imraan VawdaFATWA DEPT askimam Answered by Ustadha Hedaya Hartford, SunniPath Academy Teacher Question Can women wear makeup after wudu and then pray? Answer:In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful You can pray with make-up on if you are sure that it is pure. Since some make-up products contain impurities, you need to make sure that the one you put on does not contain any impure ingredients. And Allah Most High knows best.
