This falls under the category of intention and as such you are free to have any hair colour you wish so long as the intention or motive for that isn't to imitate the styles of non-Muslims. Since hair styles are fairly universal, this pretty much removes the issue entirely since non-Muslims have their hair in all kinds of styles and colours. Also, this along ...

Leaving it noticeably longer in some areas compared to others is what is known as qaz' (Arabic: قزع), which the Prophet ﷺ forbade us to do.

I had written an answer to a similar question on another site, which I am copying (with slight modification) below: Plucking of the eyebrows goes against the sunnah of the prophet and should not be done; much like getting a tattoo or lengthening the hair, it is considered a form of changing what Allah has created. There are a number of ahadith wherein the ...

اَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ Good question. Islam admonishes Muslim women to dress modestly and cover their 'Awrah and forbid the use of false hair. Allah says in the Quran in Surah an-Nur verse number 31: وَقُل لِّلْمُؤْمِنَاتِ يَغْضُضْنَ مِنْ أَبْصَارِهِنَّ وَيَحْفَظْنَ فُرُوجَهُنَّ وَلَا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلَّا مَا ...

The answer is there is no answer. Your question is about the cause of the ruling ('illah, Arabic: عله). None of the multiple ahadith on the topic gave a reason why dying with black is forbidden. This is a matter of "We hear and we obey" rather than being a matter of logic. So, whatever you may hear or read on the matter will be speculation or personal ...

The underlying reason dying one's hair black is forbidden is because of ahadith: "Some people will dye their hair black like the breasts of pigeons at the end of time, but they will not even smell the fragrance of Paradise."

I don't know how Muslim women had their hair cut (if they did) in our Prophet's time or if there's any hadith about this subject, but I will provide some options that come to my mind for women who don't want to show their hair to men other than their family. 1. Cut it yourself. This has the risk of cutting your skin and you may not achieve the shape that ...

I assume you are a girl. No there is no mention of it being as Haraam. If a girl likes to look great it's totally OK and natural. The only thing is that the this beautifying should only been seen by those who are Mahram. I know that Many Muslim parents tell their young daughters that you can't put on makeup and stuff. It's correct if she's going out to ...

According to the ruling of Grand Ayatollah Khamenei as a Shia Marja' al Taqlid: Shaving (thread) and decoration is not considered as a haram act by itself, but it would be haram if it is counted as the cause of concupiscence stimulation or the man makes himself as a women.
