After banking, life insurance, music and CCTVs, clerics at Darul Uloom Deoband declare nail polish as ‘un-Islamic’

Women can apply nail polish if they so wish but they have to wipe it clean before offering Namaz, the fatwa says.

Darul Uloom Deoband in a recent fatwa has decreed that nail polish is un-Islamic and women should refrain from applying nail polish and cutting their nails. The organisation has advised women to apply Mehendi instead for cosmetic purposes.

“Darul-Uloom Deoband has issued a fatwa against Muslim women using nail polish because it is un-Islamic and illegal. Rather women should use mehendi on their nails,” Mufti Ishrar Gaura, a cleric at the organization, told ANI. He added that women could apply nail polish if they so wished but have to remove it completely before offering Namaz.

Organisations dedicated to the welfare of Muslim women have not reacted kindly to the Fatwa. Farah Faiz, an advocate and national president of Rashtriyawadi Muslim Mahila Sangh, said, “They never issue a fatwa against men. prohibits a number of things but still, that is carried out by people. They only issue the fatwa against women to do everything with their permission.”

It’s not the first time that the Islamic seminary has issued bizarre fatwas. In January, the clerics had issued a fatwa asking Muslims not to marry their children to those who work in banks asserting that money earned through interest is illegitimate in Islam.

In February, it was the turn for life insurance and property insurance to be deemed ‘un-Islamic’ after the clerics claimed, “Life and death are in the hands of Allah and no insurance company can guarantee a man’s longevity”. They further informed how the insurance companies invest the premium to earn interest on it, and such an income is forbidden in Islam.

In April, Darul Uloom Deoband had asserted that dancing and music is ‘un-Islamic’ and will not conduct weddings where dancing and music are part of the ceremonies.

In May, the clerics at the seminary had decreed that CCTV camera is ‘un-Islamic’ as shooting a picture is un-Islamic as per the Shariat.

After marrying bank employees, life insurance, music, CCTVs and now nail polish has been deemed ‘un-Islamic’, we await with bated breath for the clerics at Darul Uloom Deoband to enlighten us of the un-Islamic nature of another mundane thing.
