Hair transplant legal or not

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Assalam-o-Aliakum brother,

Subhan Allah no doubt, you are truly helping muslims like me, who are bewildered,lack knowledge,courage and imman. Today muslims have detached themselves from a comprehensive and ultimate religion . My prayers are with you,may Allah bless you and help you to continue helping other fellow muslims who are in constant quest and who desperately need guidance of Islam. I wish that some how all muslims should get aware of your site so that they can be benifited .

I just have one question , is hair transplant haram, if it is then please give the reason.Thank you.

Jazak Allah

Hair transplant legal or not

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person,  no grave, no prophet,  no imam,  no dai,  nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this world and the Hereafter for your kind comments of encouragement for our humble efforts in the propagation of the Truth.    If our humble and modest efforts have helped even one brother or sister get closer to Allah and His Deen of Truth, then we would consider ourselves indeed fortunate to have been given this opportunity by the Lord Most Merciful to serve in His Cause.  We hope,  beg,  and pray the Merciful Lord  accepts our humble and weak efforts,  forgives us our shortcomings,  and saves you, us,  and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire.  Ameen.


Your Question: is hair transplant haram, if it is then please give the reason.

The majority of the scholars in Islam are of the opinion that if modern science has developed a treatment whereby men or women can re-grow their hair, through a process of transplant or otherwise, there is absolutely no harm in seeking such treatment.


But Islam has strictly forbidden the believers to wear a wig,  or attach false or artificial hair on their heads.


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 7.817         Narrated by Aisha

An Ansari girl was married and she became sick and all her hair fell out. Intending to provide her with false hair, they asked the Prophet (saws) who said, "Allah has cursed the lady who artificially lengthens (her or someone else's) hair,  and also the one who gets her hair (artificially) lengthened."


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 7.133         Narrated by Aisha

An Ansari woman gave her daughter in marriage and the hair of the latter started falling out. The Ansari women came to the Prophet (saws) and mentioned that to him and said, "Her (my daughter's) husband suggested that I should let her wear false hair." The Prophet (saws)  said, "No, (don't do that) for Allah sends His curses upon such ladies who lengthen their hair artificially."


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
