Drawing eyebrows with kohl and some hairs fall out unintentionally


I want to ask you about drawing eyebrows with a kohl pen, like applying kohl to the eyes, but when I draw them, sometimes it pulls out a few of the eyebrow hairs unintentionally. Is there any sin on me for that, even though I do not do that deliberately?


Praise be to Allah.

There is nothing wrong with drawing the eyebrows with a kohl pen, or dyeing them with a colour similar to the colour of the skin, based on the principle that things are permissible, as explained previously in the answer to question no. 103345 .

If some of the eyebrow hairs fall out unintentionally whilst doing that, there is no blame on you, because Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):

{Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred} [al-Baqarah 2:286]

{And there is no blame upon you for that in which you have erred but [only for] what your hearts intended. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful} [al-Ahzaab 33:5].

And Allah knows best.
