Is microblading allowed in this case?


Asalam wa alaikom. I have a question regarding microblading. I have very thin eyebrows that I have to fill in everyday with makeup. My eyebrows cause me a lot of distress as I suffer from a condition where I’m always touching my eyebrows. As a result I have lost a lot of the hair. Is microblading allowed in this case?


Wa Alaykumussalam

Thank you for your query.

For females, if it is not counted as beauty or adornment(Zeenah) then there is no problem in it.

It will not be allowed if it becomes a barrier on the skin and keeps one from Wudhu and Ghusl (The water and skin shouldn’t have any barrier during Wudhu and Ghusl, the water must reach the skin directly).

In case of a barrier, one should remove it for Wudhu and Ghusl if it is temporary and removable. And in the case of permanent, such as Tattoo which is under the skin, the wudhu and ghusl will be correct but if the tattoo is counted as adornment(Zeenah) for a woman then it should be hidden from a non-mahram.

Question: Is it permissible for a woman who does not observe hijab to get rid of her facial hair, straighten her eyebrows, and wear natural and light make-up?

Answer: Getting rid of facial hair and straightening the eyebrows do not prevent her from keeping her face open [while putting on the hijab], provided she is confident of not getting sucked into something haram and that exposing her face is not done with the intention of inviting haram looks.

May Allah(swt) grant you success
