Real ithmid kohl is not the same as other eye cosmetics (like eyeliners or mascaras). The prophet Sl lh lyh lyh recommended ithmid kohl and it carries major health benefits for the eyes. This is a unique benefit that is not present in other types of Kohl which are simply coloured pigments, which have no health or medicinal benefits at all.
Rather than simply marking the waterline of the eyes to make them appear bigger, ithmid kohl is used to protect the eyes from harsh sunlight. The ithmid kohl has the ability to absorb the UV radiation, which is one of the most harmful causes of eye-related diseases like cataracts and macular degeneration.
This is why the bedouins of the desert, and even ancient Egyptians, both men and women, would apply ithmid kohl around their eyes. Even to this day, many people who spend a lot of time outdoors will use ithmid kohl to keep the sun out of their eyes.
In addition to absorbing UV rays, ithmid kohl can also help improve vision. This is because it has the ability to stimulate the growth of the eyelashes and make them longer and thicker. This is another beneficial feature of ithmid kohl that is not mentioned in a Hadith but is a very well known and taken for granted benefit amongst those who use ithmid kohl.
To apply ithmid kohl, you need to have the right tool, which is called a kohl stick. This is a stick that is bluntly pointed on one end and rounded bulbously on the other end. You can either use this to directly apply ithmid kohl to the waterline of your eyes or you can use it to brush it on underneath and over the eyelashes. real ithmid kohl
