Women’s Hair



please enlighten me as the the ruling or laws in reference to our women who wrap their hair and form a hump at the back of their heads. It is very difficult for Women who has very long hair to wear it on their backs especially those who live in very hot countries.

Is it wrong as a Muslim woman to roll her hair and form a hump? Wa Salaam


Wa alaykum Salaam.

There is no harm in tying up the hair in a bun or hump.
Yes, if those big sized/bulky clips are used inside the head scarf as form of adornment/show, it is objectionable.
