Are Fake Eyelashes permissible
In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.
Fake eyelashes should not be worn with the intention to attract the attention of non Mahram men or with the intention to deceive others.
In the absence of the aforementioned two intentions, it will be permissible for women to wear fake eyelashes as long as human hair is not involved.
Saaiduna Abu Hurairah narrates that the Prophet of Allah said:
“Allah has cursed the woman who joins (her or someone else’s) hair (with the hair of another man or a woman) and the woman who asks for her hair to be joined (with the hair of another person) and the one who tattoos (herself or someone else) and the one asks to get tattooed.” (Sahih Bukhari p.879 v.2)
However, in my humble opinion it will be best to avoid it as doctors have said fake eyelashes may cause allergies and infection in the eyes.
Only Allah Knows Best
