Halal nail polish... By Sana

31 January, 2013

According to news snippets from around the world, an ingenious new invention is making the rounds enabling young Muslim women who are fashion conscious to look good yet remain pious. The wonder that is 'halal' nail polish has caused a storm among women because it has long since been believed that the mandatory ablution before prayer cannot be performed if nail polish has been applied.

The halal version promises a breathable layer that allows water to penetrate so that the water reaches the cuticles and enamel of the nail. One would find such news incredibly funny if it were not being taken as seriously as it is by women from all over the Muslim world. I myself have never really given the issue much thought as I have always believed that God sees our souls and intentions and not what has been applied to our nails.
