DAY 19: THE USE OF KOHL BY THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH ﷺ
Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet ﷺ said, “One of the best kinds of kohl that you use is Ithmid (antimony); it brightens the vision and makes the hair (eyelashes) grow.” [Sunan An-Nasa’i 5113 | Grade: Hasan (Darussalam)]
Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allah have mercy on him) said, “Kohl protects the health of the eyes and gives strength and clarity of vision, and cleanses the eye of bad substances. In addition to that, some types of kohl also serve as an adornment, and if it is applied before going to bed, this is even better. And Ithmid is more efficacious than other types of kohl.” [Zaad al-Ma’aad, 4/281]
May Allah ﷻ help us follow the sunnah in the best way possible.
