salam. i heard that the prophet (saw) used 2 wear surma under his eyes.. so is this is a sunnah? like growing your hair or a beard? and is the reward equal or not?

yes surma is sunnat. Huzoor-e-Akrum (Alahis Salat) was born with surma on His (Alahis Salat) blessed eyes. It is sunnat and Huzoor-e-Akrum (Alahis Salat) and Sahab-e-Karam (Radi Yallah Unhuma) male or female wore it

Thank you I think I've seen some men wear that masqara/eyeliner.
Kohl was mentioned is that another word for surma in another language?

I had no knowledge of bowing (Ruku). What did I know about prostration? Was I in search of your footprints or was I prostrating in prayer..Strange is my life and my servitude

Wherever I found your footprints I made it my direction

Surma is the powder that comes off the mountain....it is blackish greyish in colour and is available from saudia usually and other countries...hard to get in the UK mind! Kohl looks similar but is artificial lab produced...and eyeliner is liquid and nothing of the sort. mascara however is for the lashes. I hope that clears up the issue!

Salam brother,

You wouldn't apply it under your eye, it would go just below your eyelid, the white bit from which your bottom eyelashes grow. Don't know if that makes much sense.

Just to clear up though, it's not the pencil that you'd be using it is the powdery stuff you'd get in a bottle. It comes with a small stick with which you need to apply it.

The best surma is called ithmid. It is what the Holy Prophet used and is mentioned in shamail e Tirmidhi. I don't know if you can buy it from here, but bought a bottle from saudi.


Knowledge is what is implemented. Knowledge is not what one has memorised.
