Can Ladies dye their Hair?


Can Ladies dye their Hair other than black, using the different couloured dyes available in the market like Burgandy, Brown etc, not the Henna stuff?


Pure black dye is not permissible. Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam)
said, “There will be people who will come later (in my Ummah) and apply
black dye. They will not even smell the fragrance of paradise.” (Abu
Daawood). However, it is permissible for a Mujaahid (warrior in the path of Allah) to apply black
dye in order to give the impression of being young. (Jawahirul Fiqh vol2

To dye the hair any other colour besides black e.g. Mehndi or Katm (type of
grass) is permissible. This was the practice of Rasulullah (Sallallaahu
Álayhi Wasallam) and the Sahaaba (Radhiyallaahu Ánhum). (Jawahirul Fiqh vol2


And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best;
Mufti Ebrahim Desai
