Is Ṣalāh Valid with Makeup on?


Country: United States


In the hanafi madhab can women pray with having makeup on? Like doing wudu first and then putting on makeup and then praying. Would the salah be valid?

JazakAllah Khair

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

The ṣalāh is valid as long as there is no najis (impure) ingredients in the makeup (i.e. of the amount that will invalidate ṣalāh).

And Allah knows best
