Q: I have heard that applying mehndi (hena) before eid (on the night of eid) is sunnah and will you get reward for applying it on hands and feet. Is this true according to Islam? If someone don’t apply for eid or before eid, are they committing a sin? Will they get punished for it?
1. It is not a sunnah for women to apply mehndi on the night of eid.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
