Wudu and makeup


I cover up scars in my eyebrows with a waxy coloring. Do I need to remove this for wudu?


As-Selamu ‘Aleykum,

The answer is yes.

An-Nawawi (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

Our companions said: If he puts fat or wax or dough on the cracks of his feet, or puts henna on them, and the “mass” or substance of that remains there, he must remove it, because it prevents the water from reaching the skin.
