Inglot breathable nail polishes have hit the stores. Muslim women of all ages have been waiting with bated breath to be able to wear nail polish whenever they like. For those unaware of ablution conditions for Muslims, and are wondering what all the fuss is about, let me explain.
Muslims pray five times a day, and the prerequisite to prayer is performing wudu, or ablution. One of the conditions of the ablution is for the water to touch every small part of the body being washed. This includes the nails. A regular nail polish obstructs the flow of water to the nails. Hence, many Muslim women choose not to use nail polish on a regular basis.
