Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah
Do women with makeup on have to wet their faces before the Islamic prayer
In The Name Of Allah, The Most-Merciful, The Most Kind
Islam has put great emphasis on attaining purity and cleanliness. Ablution or Wudu is a requirement for any Salah to be valid. If the water does not reach the compulsory body parts for wudu then one’s wudu and prayer/salah will not be valid.
The compulsory actions of wudu are:
· Washing the face
· Washing the arms up to the elbows
· Wiping the head
· Washing the feet up to the ankles (Qudoori – Vol 1, Page 11)
Only Allah knows best
