Q 2: Many women in
who apply kohl in eyes, when told it is unlawful to do so, say it is a Sunnah (a commendable act). Is this true?
Applying Kohl is permissible, but it is not permissible for a woman to display any of her adornments whether kohl applied to her eyes, or the like, to other than her husband and Mahrams (spouse or unmarriageable relative) according to the statement of Allah (Exalted be He):
...and not to reveal their adornment except to their husbands
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
