Is it permissible for a woman to cut her hair in layers for beautification, knowing that she does not intend resemblance [of the disbelievers]? حكم قص الشعر للمرأة


Praise be to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and his companions.   It is okay for a woman to cut her hair for beautification in any fashion, as long as it does not resemble men, the treacherous, transgressors, etc. and even more so, the disbelievers. As for what you have mentioned of not intending to resemble, then resemblance is prohibited whether a person intends to resemble or not. That is because resemblance is uniformity in looks and appearance, even if not intended.   And Allah knows best.

  Your brother,

Dr. Khalid al-Muslih
