Ablution and the use of oil on
Q8 :If I use some oils to protect my skin from
drying. Should these oils be removed before ablution?
A8 : If the oil you apply is of the type which
prevents water from reaching your skin, then you have to remove it for
ablution. However, most oils are eventually absorbed and or dried out.
Perhaps the best thing to do is to have ablution before you apply the
oil, which may enable you to have your first prayer without having to
have a fresh ablution. By the time the next prayer is due, the oil
would have been absorbed or dried.
