Question

 

What’s the ruling of eyelash extensions glued on to your natural eyelashes. Would that affect the validity of Wudhu?

 

 

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer:

 

For wudhu to be valid water must reach the entire face excluding areas of extreme difficulties, such as the inside of the eye. The eyelashes however must be washed, so eyelash extensions worn whilst performing wudhu will render it invalid.

 

 

Only Allah knows best
