Women Wearing Kohl

(***) asks from Cairo - Egypt: the beautification of the woman by putting kohl in her eyes;is it allowed?

"It is permissible for the woman to wear kohl in her eyes infront of the women and her husband or mahaarim. As for infront of the foreign man (al-ajnabee),it is not permissible for her to uncover her face and neither her kohled eyes, due to his statement the glorified:

'And when you ask(his wives)for anything you want,ask them from behind a screen, that is purer for your hearts and for their hearts'

(Surah Al-ahzaab:53)

So there is no harm in her wearing the face veil in which her two eyes or one of them are apparent, but without applying kohl, infont of the ajnabee. And what is intended by the ajnabee is, whoever is not a mahram of the woman like her husband's brother, or her husband's paternal uncle, or the son of her paternal uncle (cousin), or other than them,regardless of whether they are Muslim or kuffaar."
