Nail Polish for Muslim Women 2013

Fashion, Muslim Girls 2013 : Inglot Cosmetics has created a new type of nail polish which has become a great hit among Muslim Women! Why? Inglot’s’breathable’ nail polish O2Mis said to provide no obstacle for women who want to complete their wudhu (ablution) before the daily prayers.

Nail polish is considered inconsistent with wudhu because of the physical layer it creates over the nails. This prevents water from cleansing the nails, which is a requirement for wudhu.

Inglot Cosmetics, the manufacturer of O2M Breathable Nail Enamel, claims that unlike the regular manicure which keeps oxygen and moisture from reaching the fingernail, Inglots nail polish was formulated to let both air and water through, hence making it a ‘wudhu-friendly nail polish.

The product is made of a polymer found in contact lenses to achieve permeability. A craze has built up around O2M nail polish after an Islamic scholar in the United States tested its permeability and published an article saying that, in his view, it complies with Islamic law.

I love nail polish and I wish I could wear it on a regular basis, said UAE-based Fatma. This new polish is a huge breakthrough for me. We are supposed to cover up, but nowhere does it say ‘dont be fashionable.

The mosque Noor Al-Islams Imam in Sharjah, Sheikh Ali Barakat, pointed out the conditions of validity of wudhu agreed by the majority of scholars. It is the removal of any substances that prevents water from reaching the body, he said. If this product allows water to reach the nails then there is no harm in using it.

Nevertheless, Fatima Al-Hamrani, Islamic law instructor, said that the product should be prohibited because it encourages women to manifest in finery. Any finery acts do not require a fatwa (Islamic legal judgment) to permit it, said Shaikh Ahmad Al-Qubaisi, a prominent UAE Islamic scholar.

Whether it allows the passage of water or not, it is haram (forbidden by Islamic law). These inventions are circumventing the name of religion, and we should be aware of it, and more eager to implement the Sharia, he said.
