Fatwa Issued Against Women Using Nail Polish

Darul Uloom Deoband has recently issued a fatwa against Muslim women using nail polish. One of the most prominent Muslim seminaries in the country came out with this fatwa since according to them its un-Islamic and illegal.

Mufti Ishrar Gaura, who is a cleric at the seminary said that Muslim women should rather wear mehendi. He explained that applying beauty products is not illegal in Islam and they can apply nail polish. However, before offering Namaz they have to completely remove it. Namaz is a ritual prayer which is prescribed by Islam to be observed 5 times in a day. Gaura also stated that nail polish prevents wuzu water (ritual purification) from washing the nails. This means that the paint creates a barrier to washing them completely.

Darul Uloom Deoband is famous for issuing and promoting regressive ideas. Recently it had asked families to avoid people who earned money from the banking business while considering marriage proposals. Moreover, it also outlaws Muslims from investing money in businesses that are regarded as haram in Islam. This includes buying stocks in commercial insurance or tourism companies.

Farah Faiz, who is the National President of Rashtriyawadi Muslim Mahila Sangh, a women’s rights group has spoken out against the recent fatwa. “They never issue a fatwa against men. Islam prohibits a number of things but still, that is carried out by people. They only issue the fatwa against women to do everything with their permission,” said Ms Faiz. She also stated that Darul Uloom Deoband is present in Pakistan as well. However, only the one in India issues such fatwas.

Last year a fatwa was issued which prohibited women from cutting their hair or shaping their eyebrows. Shaving and waxing was also banned as they were against the Sharia Law. There have been other bizarre fatwas like posting pictures on social media and barring women from watching men play football. Watching men playing with bare knees is apparently against “religious beliefs.”
