Can men adorn and beautify themselves with Kajal


Can man adorn and beautify themselves with Kajal.


In the name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-raḥmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Men cannot adorn them selves with kajal instead men could use surma which is sunnah, Kajal is an item of zeenah (beutification) for women.[1]
