▪️Are men allowed to use Henna?▪️

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

📩 Question:

The questioner says: Is it permissible for men to use Henna?

📝 Answer:

It’s not permissible for men to decorate themselves with Henna; this is specific for women, but if it’s used as a treatment or a cooling method; as some people do in hot climates, then it’s okay. But it mustn’t be applied in a decorative or fancy manner.

As for dying white hair using Henna, then this recommended.
