Islam/Masah of head after applying hair oil



I hope you are fine. I wanted to ask you will my wudhu be affected if I do Masah of head after applying hair oil - mustard oil or coconut oil to be exact? I was getting confused as moisture won't be able to reach the scalp in such a case, so wudhu might become invalid.

Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Rahim (In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)


Dear Brother,

The Masah does not affect you even if there is hair oil applied. Just rub as normal and the masah is done.

The prophet used to apply hair oil on his head and yet used to do masah over it.

I will strongly recommend the Boook "Prayer According to the Sunnah"
