Wudhu and Fardh Ghusl whilst wearing contact lenses


Will wudhu and Fardh ghusl be accepted while wearing my contact lenses?



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. 

As-salāmu 'alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is permissible to wear contact lenses whilst performing Wudhu and Fardh Ghusl. Washing one's eyeballs is not a requisite for the validity of Wudhu and Ghusl.[1]


And Allah Ta'āla Knows Best

(ويجب) أي يفرض (غسل) كل ما يمكن من البدن بلا حرج مرة كأذن و (سرة وشارب وحاجب و) أثناء (لحية) وشعر رأس ولو متلبدا لما في - فاطهروا - من المبالغة (وفرج خارج) لانه كالفم لا داخل لانه باطن، ولا تدخل أصبعها في قبلها، به يفتى (لا) يجب (غسل ما فيه حرج كعين)

وَإِدْخَالُ الْمَاءِ فِي دَاخِلِ الْعَيْنَيْنِ لَيْسَ بِوَاجِبٍ؛ لِأَنَّ دَاخِلَ الْعَيْنِ لَيْسَ بِوَجْهٍ؛ لِأَنَّهُ لَا يُوَاجَهُ إلَيْهِ؛ وَلِأَنَّ فِيهِ حَرَجًا، وَقِيلَ: إنَّ مَنْ تَكَلَّفَ لِذَلِكَ مِنْ الصَّحَابَةِ كُفَّ بَصَرُهُ، كَابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، وَابْنِ عُمَرَ - رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمْ
