The Ruling on Using Makeup/Nail Polish etc in Islaam.

 

The question on the permissibility/impermissibility of conventional makeup, nail polish, lipstick etc is one which is often discussed, but which causes a lot of problems for the masses who are left confused on its ruling.

 

The main problem with all these things is not the ingredients, or whether it is waterproof or not, but rather it is the fact that primarily it is Tashabbuh (imitation) of immoral Kuffaar.

 

Hadhrat `Abdullaah Ibn `Umar Radhiallaahu `Anhumaa said that Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam said: “Whoever imitates a people then he is of them.” Sunan Abu Daawood.

 

The second problem is that the women who wear these things only apply it for the purpose of going out in public, where they inevitably will be seen by Ghayr Mahaarim males regardless of whether they intended to make a display of themselves or not.

 

Allaah Ta`aalaa says in Surah Al-Ahzaab, Aayah 33: “And remain in your homes, and do not display yourselves like the display of the days of ignorance…”

 

Thus by them doing so, they incur sin both upon themselves as well as the men who are tempted by them.

 

Putting aside all the other problems that comes along with the usage of makeup etc, if just these two issues are taken into consideration then it becomes clear to see that it is not permissible for a Muslim woman to use makeup and nail polish etc.

 

So in conclusion the issue is not whether there are Haraam ingredients in the nail polish, makeup etc, because even though all the ingredients may be Halaal, and it may even be washable under normal water thus washing away during Wudhoo and Ghusl, but these two factors of Tashabbuh and Tabarruj (displaying one’s self) will still be found, thereby causing it to be Haraam.

 

 

And Allaah Knows Best.

Imaam Ibn Hajar Al-`Asqalaani Rahimahullaah narrates that Jamaaluddeen Ibraaheem Ibn Muhammad At-Tayyibee said:

 

“One of the leaders of the Mongols became Christian, and was visited by a group of senior Christians and Mongols, when one of them (Christians) started belittling Nabi Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam, and there was a hunting dog tied up nearby, so when he started increasing his insults the dog jumped on him and scratched him but they managed to free him from it, so one of the people present said: “This (happened) because of what you said about Muhammad (Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam).”

 

He replied: “Not at all, rather this dog is arrogant, and it saw me pointing with my hand, so it thought that I wanted to hit it.”

 

So he returned to what he was saying, and increased (his insults), so the dog jumped on him again, seized his throat and ripped it out, and he died immediately.

Because of that, about 40,000 Mongols accepted Islaam.”

Such is the love for Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam by dogs and other animals, that they cannot bear to have Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam insulted while they sit still and do nothing. While today people make all sorts of baatil statements such as “Leave them, Islaam believes in freedom of speech” and “They shouldn’t be killed for insults though” and other such nonsensical statements.

 

And what a blessed action it was of this dog, that as a result Allaah guided 40,000 people to Islaam.

 

So do not ever get mislead into thinking that by “turning the other cheek” you will be able to guide more people to Islaam, because it is Allaah who guides, not us.

 

May Allaah grant us all the understanding.

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.

 

One of the most common misconceptions people have today is that none but the Khaleefah has the right to execute a person that insults Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam, and such a misconception is to be expected when one sees the amount of ignorant people speaking on behalf of the deen, and evil scholars that try to change the deen from its original teachings to be a watered down version that the kuffaar will be happy with.

 

The reality is that whoever is capable of taking revenge upon the one that insults Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam then he has the right to do so, regardless of whether it’s in a Muslim or kaafir country, because there is no treaty and security given to a person that insults Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam.

 

Imaam Ibn Taymiyyah Rahimahullaah says in his magnificent Kitaab “As-Saarim Al-Maslool `Alaa Shaatimir Rasool” (The Unsheathed Sword Upon the one that Insults the Rasool Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam) concerning a person who kills the one that insults Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam before even giving the Khaleefah a chance to execute him:

 

“The most that can be said about that is that he is transgressing the position of the ruler, and the ruler may pardon the one who carried out a hadd punishment that must be carried out without referring the matter to him.  

 

Although this was a Hadd punishment, it also comes under the heading of killing a Harbi (a kaafir in a state of war against Islaam) that needs to be obligatory killed, and it is permissible for anyone to kill a harbi. And upon this is carried the statement of (Hadhrat) Ibn `Umar Radhiallaahu `Anhu when he was told about a monk that insulted Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam, he said: “If I heard him, I would kill him.”

 

Similar things happened at the time of Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam such as the hypocrite who was killed by (Hadhrat) `Umar Radhiallaahu `Anhu without the permission of Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam, when the hypocrite did not agree with the ruling of Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam, then (a verse of the) Qur’aan was revealed approving that action. And there was the daughter of Marwaan who was killed by that man, and Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam called him the supporter of Allaah and His Rasool (Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam). That is because the one whose execution becomes necessary because of his plot to corrupt the religion is not like one who is executed because of a sin like adultery and the like.”

 

 

الوجه الثاني: أن ذلك أكثر ما فيه أنه افتئات على الإمام والإمام له أن يعفو عمن أقام حدا واجبا دونه.

 

الوجه الثالث: أن هذا وإن كان حدا فهو قتل حربي أيضا فصار بمنزلة قتل حربي تحتم قتله وهذا يجوز قتله لكل أحد وعلى هذا يحمل قول ابن عمر في الراهب الذي قيل له إنه يسب النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فقال: لو سمعته لقتلته.

 

الوجه الرابع: أن مثل هذا قد وقع على عهد رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم مثل المنافق الذي قتله عمر بدون إذن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم لما لم يرض بحكمه فنزل القرآن بإقراره ومثل بنت مروان التي قتلها ذلك الرجل حتى سماه النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ناصرا لله ورسوله وذلك أن من وجب قتله لمعنى يكيد به الدين ويفسده ليس بمنزلة من قتل لأجل معصية من زنى ونحوه.

 

And Allaah knows best.

Permission has been granted (to fight)…

 

أُذِنَ لِلَّذِينَ يُقَاتَلُونَ بِأَنَّهُمْ ظُلِمُوا وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَى نَصْرِهِمْ لَقَدِيرٌ. الَّذِينَ أُخْرِجُوا مِنْ دِيَارِهِمْ بِغَيْرِ حَقٍّ إِلَّا أَنْ يَقُولُوا رَبُّنَا اللَّهُ وَلَوْلَا دَفْعُ اللَّهِ النَّاسَ بَعْضَهُمْ بِبَعْضٍ لَهُدِّمَتْ صَوَامِعُ وَبِيَعٌ وَصَلَوَاتٌ وَمَسَاجِدُ يُذْكَرُ فِيهَا اسْمُ اللَّهِ كَثِيرًا وَلَيَنْصُرَنَّ اللَّهُ مَنْ يَنْصُرُهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَقَوِيٌّ عَزِيزٌ

 

 

“Permission has been granted (to fight) to those who have been fought because they have been oppressed, and Allaah is All-Capable of aiding them. Those who have been expelled from their homes without right (for no reason) but that they say ‘Our Lord is Allaah’, and had Allaah not repelled some people with others then monasteries, churches, synagogues and Masaajid wherein the name of Allaah is mentioned abundantly, and Allaah will surely aid those who aid Him (i.e. His deen, Islaam), indeed Allaah is Powerful, Mighty.”Surah Al-Hajj, Aayah 39-40.

 

Commentary:

 

This was the first Aayah revealed concerning Jihaad, prior to this there was no Jihaad, and the Muslims had to bear patience with the tortures carried out by the kuffaar, for thirteen long years in Makkah, then once Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam was forced to migrate to Madeenah this Aayah was revealed.

 

This aayah and the ones that followed it concerning Jihaad abrogated any and all laws of Makkah with regards to having patience in the face of harassment.
Examples of what was changed:

 

1: If muslims are fought they must fight back, while previously they had to endure it patiently.

 

2: If Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam is insulted or mocked then the insulter is to be killed, while previously Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam had to endure it.

 

3: If the kuffaar merely intend to attack the muslims then they must be fought, while previously it wasn’t allowed.

 

4: Islaam is taken to other lands via Jihaad, while previously it wasn’t allowed.

 

5: If a hand  span of Muslim land is invaded then the kuffaar must be fought, previously that  wasn’t the case.

 

And there are similar other cases too.

 

Lesson:
From this Aayah we learn the way that the world’s wrongs are rectified, i.e. through  Jihaad.
Many people try to gandhi-fy Islaam with their “Non-violence shall prevail!” opinions thinking that is the way forward.

 

But Allaah the  Most-Knowledgeable says that the way forward is Jihaad.
