Tuesday in love water permeable nail polish

Fatwaa ID: 234

Is tuesday in love water permeable nail polish halal?


In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

We are unable to comment on the permeability of the nail polish in reference. It is stated on their website that they are certified by Islamic Council of South Africa (ICSA)[i]. We cannot comment on their observations. It would be advisable to avoid applying the nail polish until one can confirm its permeability as water reaching the nail is a prerequisite for the validity of Salaah[ii]. One should not risk the validity of her salaah.

And Allaah Ta’aala Knows Best

[ii]  الفتاوى الهندية (1/ 13)

في فتاوى ما وراء النهر إن بقي من موضع الوضوء قدر رأس إبرة أو لزق بأصل ظفره طين يابس أو رطب لم يجز وإن تلطخ يده بخمير أو حناء جاز ….

والعجين في الظفر يمنع تمام الاغتسال والوسخ والدرن لا يمنع والقروي والمدني سواء والتراب والطين في الظفر لا يمنع والصرام والصباغ ما في ظفرهما يمنع تمام الاغتسال وقيل كل ذلك يجزيهم للحرج والضرورة، ومواضع الضرورة مستثناة عن قواعد الشرع

حاشية الطحطاوي على مراقي الفلاح (1/ 98)

والثالث زوال ما يمنع وصول الماء إلى الجسد لجرمة الحائل كشمع وشحم

قوله كشمع وشحم وعجين وطين وما ذكره بعضهم من عدم منع الطين والعجين محمول على القليل الرطب
