After The Death of Her Husband - Sheikh Saleh al Fawzan ( حفظه الله)
1. All types of perfume: She should NOT apply perfume to her body or clothes or use anything that is perfumed. This is by the statement of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم) in a saheeh hadeeth, "She should not touch perfume."
2. Beautification of her body: It is prohibited for her to dye her hands and feet with henna and all types of beautification, such as kohl (eyeliner) and different types of skin dye, unless she is forced to use kohl; for medicinal purposes and not beautification in which case she is allowed to use it at night and remove it during the day. There is no harm if she uses medicine for her eyes that contains no beatification.
