Is face painting for kids permissible, for example at kids fun days or sports days? Is it permissible for a female to do kids face painting?
جزاك الله خيرا
Wa Alaikum Assalaam,
The majority of Scholars have stated that face-painting for kids is not permissible even though it is done for fun or sports day. This is a type of disfiguring and disguising of the face which is not allowed in Islam.
It will also not be permissible for a female to do kids face-painting.
And Allah Knows Best.
