Wudu: Contact Lenses

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Is it allowed to keep contact lenses in whilst performing Wudu ?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam,

Contact lenses are worn inside the eye. It is neither obligatory nor recommended to wash inside the eyes in wudu or even in ghusl. [Tahtawi, Hashiyat al-Maraqi]

As such, wearing contact lenses in no way affects the validity of one’s wudu.

Walaikum assalam,
Faraz Rabbani
