Wearing Finger Nail Polish During Ablution: Shaykh Salih Alish-Shaykh

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

It is obligatory upon whomsoever performs ablution to ensure that the water reaches all points of his skin and the nails are included in that. Wearing fingernail polish makes the water incapable of reaching every portion of the hand and as a result the obligation of wudhu is incomplete. The Exalted says:

يأيُّها الذين ءامنوا إذا قمتم إلى الصلاة فاغْسلوا وجوهكم و أيديكم إلى المرافق وامْسحوا برءُوسكم و أرجُلكم إلى الكعبين

“O you who believe! Whenever you stand to establish the prayer wash your face and hands to the elbows, and wipe your heads and feet to the ankles.”

If wudhu is incomplete the prayer is invalid and who from the women is pleased with their prayer not being accepted? Thus whoever wears it should remove it when making wudhu.

Wiping The Neck During Ablution: Shaykh Salih Alish-Shaykh

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Wiping the neck is a mistake and considered by some scholars to be an innovation, because of it not being a firmly established practice of the Prophet -sallahu alayhi wa salaam. On the contrary  extremely weak narratives (supporting the action) were reported, and even mentioned by some scholars (as proof for the legitimacy of such), however (the ruling of) the narratives being unauthentic was hidden from them. For this reason it is not legislated to wipe the neck and it is necessary to be aware of this in order to safeguard the legislation from any additions.
