Piercing Of The Body Parts For Women


Recommended Posts


I wish to ask, if we are allowed to pierce our belly button, eyebrows, or any part of our face... Is this allowed in Islam?





In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,


The scholars agree that it is permissible for a woman to have her ears pierced to wear an earring since that was customary in the time of the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace), and also because it is considered to be an adornment for women. Similarly they have even permitted the piercing of the nose as women in some communities do, for it is also considered a form of adornment in many Muslim communities.


However, it would not be permissible to pierce the lip, belly button and other body parts since that is not considered the adornment for any decent women. Also, this is a fashion and trait of the vilest from the non-Muslims (kuffar), such as the celebrities and pop-icons, etc, thus it would be considered imitation of the non-believers, hence impermissible.


Then there is also self torture involved here known as Muthla, and to inflict harm and torture upon one’s self is impermissible.


Therefore, it would best be to avoid piercing the various parts of the body with the exception of the ears and nose.


And Allah Knows Best
