Hejaz or Hijaz  is the region in Saudi Arabia in which Mecca and Medina are located. The city of Jeddah is also part of Hijaz.

Two types of Ithmid kohl are found in Hijaz : 

  • Black ( also known as Hejazi hot) Ithmid kohl
  • Red ( also known as Hejazi cold) Ithmid kohl

Red Hijazi ithmid kohl

First of all, this is not actually red, so do not run away based on hearing this. It is actually more of dark  burgundy colour as can be seen from the photos. 

“Red” and “Cold” are just mere descriptions used by arab sellers and traders as well as customers. 

Why buy red Hijazi Ithmid kohl ?

Customers always ask what is the difference between the red hijazi ithmid and the black type.

Both kohl types are ithmid and have all the benefits of ithmid kohl mentioned in the Sunnah i.e growing eyelashes and vision enhancement. Both are also from Hijaz in Saudi Arabia.

However, the difference lies in that the red type is much lighter in weight and once ground into powder it is more smoother and finer than the black one. Because of this, it is less irritating in the eye on application. This is why it is referred to as “cold” ; it is less burning and feels ‘colder’ in the eyes.

These characteristics of the red hijazi ithmid arise partly from it containing less impurities than the black type. It is also partly due to slight difference in chemistry as it is well known in Geology and Chemistry that same type of rock can have varying chemical structure depending on location and the environment around it.

Why use ithmid kohl ?

  • عَنْ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ رضي الله عنهماَالَ : قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : (إِنَّ خَيْرَ أَكْحَالِكُمُ الْإِثْمِدُ يَجْلُو الْبَصَرَ وَيُنْبِتُ الشَّعْرَ)

 رواه أبو داود (3878) والنسائي (5113) وابن ماجه (3497) ، وصححه الألباني في “صحيح أبي داود 

Narrated by Ibn Abbaas, May Allah be pleased with him, that He صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ said ” Indeed the best of your Kohl is the Ithmid…It Enhances vision and  Grows the hair

وعَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ رضي الله عنهما أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ : (اكْتَحِلُوا بِالإِثْمِدِ فَإِنَّهُ يَجْلُو البَصَرَ ، وَيُنْبِتُ الشَّعْرَ) رواه الترمذي (1757) ، وصححه الألباني في “صحيح الترمذي

Narrated by Ibn Abbaas, May Allah be pleased with him, that He صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّ said : “Use Ithmid as a Kohl for it enhances vision and grows hair”

 Ithmid kohl benefits

  • Improves and enhances sight and vision
  • Makes the eyelashes grow- beautifies and protects eyes
  • Acts as a trap cage for toxins, germs and impurities that could come into the eye. 
  • Can improve mind and mental clarity – this is mentioned in a da`eef hadith- found to be true with personal experience – Why not try it for yourself ?

Using ithmid Kohl 

  • The Sunnah is to apply Ithmid Kohl an odd-number of times in each eye, ideally 3 times in each eye. The prophet  صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ said : “If anybody amongst you applies Kohl (in his eye), he has to do that in odd numbers”. [Reported by Ahmad and Al albani said that ‘it is a sound Hadith’].

And in Sunan Ibn Majah and others, Ibn Abbas, (Radiya Allahu Anhuma) said:The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) used to have a Kohl container and used to apply Kohl 3 times in each eye“.

  • It is best to apply Ithmid Kohl when going to sleep, as this was the  common practice of the prophet.This allows for maximum absorption and benefit as the eyes are closed and resting. 
  • Women can also apply it during the day as a mascara/eyeliner for beautification while being mindful not do this in public to avoid attracting attention as highlighted by scholars.

    Très déçue de ce ithmid, il s’agit que de la ferraille, j’ai fais le test avec l’aimant et ça bouge en contact avec ce dernier, 18£ pour du fer c’est très cher payé, hasbia allah wa niama el wakil de ce site. 20 £ jeté à la poubelle.


      Je suis désolé d’apprendre que vous êtes déçu de votre achat. Mais je crois qu’il y a un malentendu.
      Lorsque vous vérifiez avec le test magnétique, la plupart des Kohl (70% ou plus) se déplacent s’il s’agit de faux. Le véritable Ithmid Kohl contient naturellement de très petites quantités de composés de fer. Ce que vous voyez est cette petite quantité qui bouge.

      Mais cela représente moins de 1% de la bouteille. Et c’est naturel, pas ajouté. S’il vous plaît voir les images de la pierre réelle utilisée dans la fabrication de la poudre Kohl. Il est attaché ici.

      Vous pouvez voir une petite couleur argentée sur la pierre rouge. Ceci est le composé de fer. C’est un naturel et difficile à enlever. C’est ce que vous voyez bouger avec l’aimant.

      Pouvez-vous m’envoyer une vidéo montrant combien se déplace réellement avec l’aimant?

  4. Esai

    This business should be shut down.

    I requested my order to be cancelled and for my money to be returned before the package was shipped, and this is the response I received:

    “Dear *my name*

    Soryy for the delay in getting back to you

    The reason for the delay was I was contemplating on what to do.

    I decided it is better to send you the package and see how much customs fee if any is charged.

    It might not be as much as 15 euros to be honest as different EU states have different rates.

    I will cover the fee anyway. In return I ask a small favour from you which is if you can write me a small review of the product and how it can help a student like you in reading etc (after you use it).

    Kind regards

    I don’t understand in what planet it is appropriate to ‘decide’ for the customer. How outrageous is it to type, “I decided it is better to send you the package” when I explicitly requested for my order to be cancelled and my money to be refunded.

    He also did not cover the fee he said he would cover by the way. I had to pay 9 euros to pick up my package.

    The more I type, the angrier I get so I will end my review here. Do not buy from this guy.
