- Why are tattoos not allowed in Islam? 2 answers
I have heard that tattoos are haram by a lot of people. I am not looking to get a tattoo, but I was curious though why they are prohibited. I have not seen any text to support this thought. If anyone could provide any insight into this issue it would be very much appreciated. If there is any text, I would like to see the original Arabic text as well.
