The Ruling on Wearing Coloured Contact Lens


Ash-Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan, may Allah preserve him, was asked on the ruling of wearing coloured contact lenses?

A: It is okay to wearing contact lens due to a need for it .As if there is no need for it then it is better to leave it off especially if it is expensive for verily it is considered to be extravagance, adding to that it contains of deceit and deception because it shows not the actuality of the eye without there being a need for it.

Reference: al-Ma’rah al-Muslimah bayna al-Halaal wal Haraam, page 59, print: as-Saffaa.

The scholars of the Standing Committee said:

It is not permissible to use artificial nails, false eyelashes and coloured contact lenses, because it is harmful to the part of the body where they are used and because it also involves deceit and trickery, and is changing the creation of Allaah.
