I have seen many people recently who have started wearing clip-in extensions for 1/2 hours for a family evening out. I am hanafi so I wanted to know the hanafi point of view for clip in hair extensions which you literally just clip in and you can take it out after 1/2 hours. I wanted to know what is the hanafi ruling on that? Some say its allowed and some say its not allowed but better to ask to be clear.


Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim have reported a narration of Sa'eed Bin Al-Musayyib: "When the Mu'awiyah came to Medina for the last time, he delivered a sermon before us. He took out a tuft of hair and said: "I never thought that someone other than jews would do such a thing(i.e use false hair)." The prophet PBUH named such a thing as az-zur (false practice)" (Parargaph from "Prohibited and Disliked Acts in Islam by Dr Shabbir Ahmed

From this and i have also heard from religous friends that wigs are haraam so my opinion is this would be the same thing. I hope this is helpful :)
