RULING ON HAIR EXTENSIONS [1]

It is not permissible for a woman to attach other hair to her hair (hair extensions ) because of the warning against hair extensions.

Al-Bukhari (5937) and Muslim (2122) narrated from Ibn ‘Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “May Allah curse the one who adds hair extensions and the one who has them added, the one who does tattoos and the one who has them done.”

Muslim (2126) narrated that Jabir ibn ‘Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) forbade women to attach anything to their head.

You Can Do It

Is attaching string, fabric and the like to the hair permissible? This is general in meaning and applies to anything that may be attached to the head. Hence some of the scholars are of the view that it is haram to attach string, fabric and the like to the hair; others are of the opinion that what is haram is attaching hair to it.

An-Nawawi said in Sharh Muslim: al-Qadi ‘Iyad said: The scholars differed concerning this issue. Malik, at-Tabari and many or most of the scholars said that attaching anything is prohibited, whether it is hair, wool, or cloth. They quoted as evidence for that the hadith of Jabir which was narrated by Muslim, according to which the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) forbade women to attach anything to their head.

Al-Layth ibn Sa‘d said: The prohibition applies specifically to attaching hair; there is nothing wrong with attaching wool, cloth and so on. Others said: All of that is permissible. This is narrated from ‘Aishah, but it is not narrated from her in a sahih report; rather the sahih report from her is in accordance with the view of the majority.

Is tying strings of coloured silk to hair permissible?
Al-Qadi said:

“With regard to tying strings of coloured silk and the like which does not resemble hair, that is not prohibited because it does not come under the heading of attaching hair extensions and it does not serve the same purpose as hair extensions; rather it is done for the purpose of beautification and adornment. In the hadith it states that doing hair extensions is a major sin for which the one who does it is cursed; it also shows that the one who helps in doing something haram has a share of the burden of sin with the one who does it, just as the one who helps in an act of obedience has a share of the reward.”
