  • QUESTION to all brothers: Do you apply kohl to your eyes???

    This is a question I was meaning to ask for a while but kept forgetting anyways so do you and is it based more in some cultures then others.

    It is an actual sunnah to and I herd it being done by brothers in some lectures i listened to.

    Imaam Tirmidhi mentions five ahaadith in this chapter.

    (48) Hadith Number 1
    Ibn 'Abbaas Radiyallahu 'Anhu says:"Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam said: 'Use kuhl made of ithmid on the eye; it brightens the eyesight, and strengthens and increases the growth of the eye lashes'. (Sayyidina Ibn'Abbaas Radiyallahu'Anhu also used to say) 'Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam had a small container for keeping kohl, from which he applied kohl in each eye three times every night"'.

    (49) Hadith Number 2
    Ibn 'Abbaas Radiyallahu 'Anhu reports: "Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam applied kuhl of ithmid three times in each eye before sleeping'. In a narration also from Ibn 'Abbaas Radiyallahu 'Anhu, it is reported: "Rasuluilah Sallallahu'Alayhi Wasallam had a small container for keeping kuhl, from which he applied in each eye kuhl three times before sleeping'.

    (50) Hadith Number 3
    Jaabir bin 'Abdullah Radiyallahu 'Anhu says: "Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam said: 'Use the kuhl made from ithmid for the eyes. It brightens the vision and strengthens the growth of the eye lashes'.

    (51) Hadith Number 4
    Ibn 'Abbaas Radiyallahu 'Anhu says: "Rasulullah Sallallah 'Alayhi Wasallam has said: 'The best from among all the kuhl used by you is the one made from ithmid. It brightens the eyesight and strengthens the growth of the eye lashes"'.

    Commentary
    One of the narrators in the chain of this hadith is Bishr bin Mufaddal RA. The 'ulama wrote that he performed four hundred rak'ahs nafl daily, and it was his permanent practice to fast every alternate day.

    (52) Hadith Number 5
    'Abdullah bin 'Umar Radiyallahu 'Anhu related the same hadith from Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallarn that: "Verily use the kuhl made from ithmid. It brightens the vision and strengthens the growth of the eye lashes".

    Kohl is something else.
    وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمۡ ءَامِنُواْ كَمَآ ءَامَنَ ٱلنَّاسُ قَالُوٓاْ أَنُؤۡمِنُ كَمَآ ءَامَنَ ٱلسُّفَهَآءُ*ۗ أَلَآ إِنَّهُمۡ هُمُ ٱلسُّفَهَآءُ وَلَـٰكِن لَّا يَعۡلَمُونَ


    And when it is said unto them: believe as the people believe, they say: Shall we believe as the foolish believe? Beware! They indeed are the foolish? But they know not.
    Al Baqarah : Verse 13

      No, ummah forum was the first time I even heard of it. I don't think I'd be able to put anything into my eyes, assuming I managed to get hold of any in the first place.

          yes, only at night though, not every night, some times. I try not to put it in the day and go out coz several non muslim women at work remarked how attractive it looked.

            Really, am thinking of doing it but am scared I'll stab myself in the eye.

                  no you won't you just apply to the bottom eyelid, just put a little bit on your finger tip, pull you eyelid front and apply it, it's no big deal, I don't enjoy ithmid though, it has a very rough texture, kinda pokey. I still use it sometimes, purely because it is sunnah. The one I like is from india, burns a lot but does not poke

                        I personally don't, but I wouldn't mind trying it at home. So you put it on the eyelids or eyelashes?
