Wintersons Pearls

Question:

A pearl is a thing that is found in sea shell animals. Is a pearl pure? A face cream that does contain pearl-powder is it permissible to use?

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

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

Pearls are pure.  It is permissible to use a face cream which contains pearl powder as long as the other ingredients are of a permissible nature.[1]

And Allah Ta’ālā Knows Best

[1]  ثُمَّ النَّاسُ تَكَلَّمُوا فِي اللُّؤْلُؤِ فَقِيلَ: إنَّ مَطَرَ الرَّبِيعِ يَقَعُ فِي الصَّدَفِ فَيَصِيرُ لُؤْلُؤًا فَعَلَى هَذَا أَصْلُهُ مِنْ الْمَاءِ (السرخسي ج 2 ص 213 دار المعرفة)

(وَ) لَا فِي (لُؤْلُؤٍ) هُوَ مَطَرُ الرَّبِيعِ (الدر المختار ج 2 ص 322 أيج أيم سعيد)

(قَوْلُهُ: هُوَ مَطَرُ الرَّبِيعِ) أَيْ أَصْلُهُ مِنْهُ قَالَ الْقُهُسْتَانِيُّ: هُوَ جَوْهَرٌ مُضِيءٌ يَخْلُقُهُ اللَّهُ تَعَالَى مِنْ مَطَرِ الرَّبِيعِ الْوَاقِعِ فِي الصَّدَفِ الَّذِي قِيلَ إنَّهُ حَيَوَانٌ مِنْ جِنْسِ السَّمَكِ يَخْلُقُ اللَّهُ تَعَالَى اللُّؤْلُؤَ فِيهِ كَمَا فِي الْكَرْمَانِيِّ. (رد المحتار ج 2 ص 322 أيج أيم سعيد)
