Is hair dye permissable?


Assalamualaikum Mawlana and all eshaykh Staff,
I needed to know is dying my hair permissible, as some say that the wudu water doesn’t penetrate the hair, but then others say, then how come mehndi (henna) doesn’t coat your hair but dye does? I don’t know. I cover my hair, but I’m asking only for my future husbands pleasure, as my hair has a lot of white hair and they have become very discolored and dull.

I needed an urgent reply.. ‘m very sorry for the inconvenience and bad adab.

JazakAllah. May Allah swt raise all your stations higher and higher.


wa `alaykum salam,
The Messenger of Allah (S) stated:
“Change this color, and stay away from the black (color).”

Therefore, you can change your hair color with other than black.
