▪️Ruling on Hair transplant▪️

Our Shaykh, Muhammad ibn Hizaam -may Allaah preserve him- was asked the following question:

📩 Question:

The questioner says: Is it permissible for a bald person to have hair transplant?

📝 Answer:

If the intent of transplant refers to promoting hair growth; in the sense that he is given lotions and ointments to apply on his head to facilitate hair growth, then this is fine. But if what’s intended is to place a wig on the head then there’s no need for this, except in the case of a bald woman; in which case, it’s okay to buy her a wig from the angle of removing the defect – not as a means of beautification or changing the creation of Allah.
