developing white hairs at young age of 13/14. I didn't use hair dye until the
time of my marriage at the age of 26 with the intention of looking young for my
wife. Since then I am using black hair dye once in one and half months just
with sole intention of looking young for my wife who is 26 now and I am 28 now.
is that is it permissible in this circumstances to use black hair dye. As I
have read that black hair dye is not permissible. I also want to mention that
at the time of my initial use I have asked ulema
about permissiblity of dying hair and I have got positive
reply but I didn't ask about black hair dye use nor did they tell me. I am
looking forward for your kind guidance.
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
It is permissible to dye one’s hair with colours other than black. Dying hair with black colour is not permissible. [i]
