Removing the things that prevent water from reaching the skin

Q: We heard some scholars saying that it is permissible for a woman to perform Wudu' (ablution) without removing nail polish. What is your opinion on this?


A: All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. If the nail polish is impermeable, the Wudu’ will not be valid, unless the nail polish is removed before performing Wudu’. (Part No. 5; Page No. 219) If it is permeable, as is the case with henna, the Wudu’ will be valid.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
