Allah, I am a woman who has closely plaited hair on
my head; should I undo it for taking a bath, because
of
sexual
intercourse?
He
(the
Prophet

for you to throw three handfuls of water on your
head and then pour water over yourself, and you
shall be purified.
Hadith - Muslim, Narrated Abdullah ibn
Abbas radhiallahu 'anhumaa: Ibn Abbas saw
Abdullah ibn al-Harith observing the prayer and (his
hair) was plaited behind his head. He (Abdullah ibn
Abbas) stood up and unfolded them. While going
back (from the prayer) he met Ibn Abbas and said to
him: why is it that you touched my head? He (Ibn
Abbas) replied: (The man who observes prayer with
plaited hair) is like one who prays with his hands tied
behind.
Hair Coloring

Forbidden Haircuts
Hadith - Bukhari 7:803, Narrated Ubaidullah bin
Hafs radhiallahu 'anhu: that 'Umar bin Nafi' told him
that Nafi', Maula 'Abdullah had heard 'Umar saying,
"I heard Allah's Apostle forbidding Al-Qaza'."

'Ubaidullah pointed (towards his head) to show us
and added, "Nafi' said, 'It is when a boy has his head
shaved leaving a tuft of hair here and a tuft of hair
there." Ubaidullah pointed towards his forehead and
the sides of his head. 'Ubaidullah was asked, "Does
this apply to both girls and boys?" He said, "I don't
know," but Nafi' said, -The boy." 'Ubaidullah added,
"I asked Nafi' again, and he said, 'As for leaving hair
on the temples and the back part of the boy's head,
there is no harm, but Al-Qaza' is to leave a tuft of
hair on his forehead unshaved while there is no hair
on the rest of his head, and also to leave hair on
either side of his head.' "

Hurairah radhiallahu 'anhu, see also Al-Bukhari

Hadith
Muslim,
Narrated
Jabir
ibn
Abdullah radhiallahu 'anhu: When AbuQuhafah
(father of AbuBakr) came in the Year of Victory or on
the Day of Victory (to the Prophet to pledge his
allegiance to him) his head and his beard were white
like hyssop. He (the Prophet
)
commanded or the women were commanded by
him that they should change this with something
(that the color of his hair should be changed).

Hadith - Muslim, Narrated 'Ubaid Ibn


Juraij radhiallahu 'anhu: ...And about the dyeing of
hair with Hinna; no doubt I saw Allah's Apostle
dyeing his hair with it and that is why I like to dye
(my hair with it)...
Question: Is it permissible for a woman to dye the
hair upon her head with black dye?
Answer: It is not permissible for a woman or other
than her to color their hair with black dye, because
of the statement of the Messenger sallAllaahu
alayhi wa sallam:
Change this color, and stay away from the black
(colour). - Muslim
As for changing (the hair color) with other than
black, then no problem, or (changing it) with henna
or mixed al-Katam, (al-Katam is a plant that gives a
dark color, from the myrtle family) so there is no
problem with this if the color changes to other than
black, or between black and red.
Grey Hair
Hadith - Abu Dawud, Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr
ibn al-'As radhiallahu 'anhu: The Apostle of
Allah
said: Do not pluck out grey
hair. If any believer grows a grey hair in Islam, he will
have light on the Day of Resurrection. (This is
Sufyan's version). Yahya's version says: Allah will
record on his behalf a good deed for it, and will blot
out a sin for it.

Prophet

with which grey hair are changed are henna and
katam.
Hadith - Abu Dawud, Narrated Abdullah ibn
Mas'ud radhiallahu 'anhu: The Prophet of
Allah
disliked ten things: Yellow
coloring, meaning khaluq, dyeing grey hair, trailing
the lower garment, wearing a gold signet-ring, a
woman decking herself before people who are not
within the prohibited degrees, throwing dice, using
spells except with the Mu'awwidhatan, wearing
amulets, withdrawing the penis before the semen is
discharged, in the case of a woman who is wife or
not a wife, and having intercourse with a woman
who is suckling a child; but he did not declare them
to be prohibited.

about it.

He (the Prophet
) replied: As
regards man, he should undo the hair of his head
and wash it until the water should reach the roots of
the hair. But there is no harm if the woman does not
undo it (her hair) and pour three handfuls of water
over her head.
Grooming
Hadith - Muwatta 51.7: Yahya related to me from
Malik from Zayd ibn Aslam that Ata ibn Yasar told
him
that
the
Messenger
of
Allah
was in the mosque when a
man came in with disheveled hair and beard. The

freed slave of the Prophet


,
passing by Hasan ibn Ali (Allah be pleased with
them) when he was standing offering his prayer. He
had tied the back knot of his hair. Abu Rafi' untied it.
Hasan turned to him with anger, Abu Rafi' said to
him: Concentrate on your prayer and do not be
angry:
I
heard
the
Apostle
of
Allah
say: This is the seat of the
devil, referring to the back knot of the hair.
In Summary

Messenger of Allah
motioned
with his hand that he should be sent out to groom
his hair and beard. The man did so and then
returned.
The
Messenger
of
Allah
said, "Isn't this better than
that one of you should come with his head
disheveled, as if he were a shaytan?"

Hair Gathered On Top of Head


Hadith - Sahih Muslim, #6840, Narrated Abu
Hurayrah radhiallahu 'anhu

Allah's Apostle
said: There are
two types, amongst the denizens of Hell, I have yet
not seen them. One possessing whips like the tail of
an ox and they flog people with them. (The second
one) the women who would be naked in spite of
their being dressed, who are seduced (to wrong
paths) and seduce others with their hair high like
humps. These women would not get into Paradise
and they would not perceive the odor of Paradise,
although its fragrance can be perceived from such
and such distance (from great distance).

Do not pluck grey hairs


Get rid of those braid extensions and hair
pieces.
Clip the moustache and nails, etc, within 40
days
Women should not put all her hair up on the
top of her head like a camel hump. She may
put it up at home as long as some hair lies on
her neck still, but not when leaving the house
in hijab where the hump can be seen to be
under the hijab and drawing attention to her
hair.
While doing salah, a man should not have his
hair braided or pulled back in a knot
Comb your hair from the right side first
Destroy your clipped nails and hair after cutting
it by collecting it and burying it. It is not a sin if
you don't destroy your hair, but it is preferable.
A woman should not have a hairstyle that
resembles a man's hairstyle.
Do not imitate the hair styles or colors of the
Jews and Christians or other quasi-religious
groups i.e. the dreadlocks of the Rastafari
Movement or Rastafarians One of the most
visible practices of Rastafarians is the wearing
of one's hair in dreadlocks. Dreadlocks have
several purposes and layers of meaning for
Rastafarians, including: the biblical command
not to cut one's hair (Leviticus 21:5), the
appearance of the lion's mane, representing
strength, Africa, Ethiopia, and the Lion of
Judah, naturalness and simplicity, which are
associated with Africa, the Rasta's roots are in
Africa.
