Friday Freaky Fatwa--Sexy Sticky Arab Hair

Did you get the right colour of hair die?
Pink, right?
A Muslim asks a scholar

Is it permissible to dye the hair black if it was originally black? My hair is black but then its colour changed to red, and now I want to dye it black. 
And the scholar replies
Praise be to Allah.

The Prophet said that dying the hair black is not allowed. That is mentioned in hadith (follow all of the narrators) It was narrated by Muslim that Jaabir ibn ‘Abd-Allaah that Abu Quhaafah, the father of Abu Bakr al-Siddeeq, was brought to the Prophet to give his oath of allegiance, and his hair was completely white. The Prophet said: “Change this, but avoid black.”
Really?  Most Arabs have black hair...and they don't like black dogs.  Could there be a connection?

Dyeing the hair black is not allowed, whether the hair was red or white. The scholars have stated that the reason why it is not allowed to dye the hair black is because of the deception involved, as it makes a person appear to be something he is not, especially since a person’s age may be known from the colour of his hair, whether it is black or white or a mixture of the two. So dyeing the hair black makes him look young when he may be middle aged or an old man.
And dying the hair red would make him look like…Ronald McDonald.

Based on this reason, if there are no white hairs and there is no intention to deceive, as in the case asked about here – where the questioner’s hair was black then its colour changed to red – is it permissible to dye the hair black?
And the answer is…

It better to be on the safe side and avoid that, because of the wording of the hadith and in accordance with it, especially since the reason mentioned – namely cheating and deception – is an implicit reason which some of the scholars stated was what was meant here, but it was not stated expressly by the Prophet
How did they come to the conclusion that the questioner was trying to be deceptive?  Ah, the minds of the scholars.  Everyone to them is deceptive.

And Allah is the One Whom we ask to guide us to do and say that which is right and true.
Full of crap.  They relied solely on what someone said, someone else said, that someone said that he said and they're all dead.


A Muslim asks a scholar

I have noticed that some of my colleagues at work have their beard painted or turned into the black color, and when asked they say that it in the SUNNAH to paint in what is called (katm).
My questions are:
1)-Are we allowed in any way to paint our hair (head or beard) with black even if it is with this KATAM ?
2)-What is this KATAM, does have a black color and is it true that some of the SAHABA (first believers of the desert arabs) used it ?
And the scholar replies
Praise be to Allah.
Dyeing grey hairs is tradition and is part of the teachings of Islam. It means dyeing grey hairs on the head and in the beard, for men. For women, it refers to the hair of the head.
As opposed to the hair under their arms…right?

It was reported that Abu Hurayrah said: the Prophet said: “The Jews and the Christians do not dye their hair, so be different from them.”
Be different but pray to the same God? 
Dear scholar, the Jews and Christians are now dying their hair what should we do?  Answer; dye your hair black, then shave your head.  Stupid Hadith. 

It was reported that Abu Umaamah said: “O Ansaar, dye your hair red and yellow, and be different from the Persians.”
Cracked me up!  Yeah, dying your hair red and yellow would not only make you different from the Persians (today’s Iran) but according to this week’s news from Iran, it will also get you arrested for having glamorous hair.  Ditto if they wear shorts, a necklace or walk a dog.  Much worse if it’s all done at the same time.

Changing grey hair by dyeing it black is forbidden. This is the opinion of the majority of scholars, who forbid it completely, because of the hadith of Dawood; And the Prophet said: There are people who dye their hair black like the crops of pigeons; they will never smell the fragrance of Paradise.”
True.  They will smell the poop of a crop of pigeons.  Stupid hadith

Ibn Hajar said: the chain of this hadith is strong, but there is some dispute as to whether it is narrated correctly.
That could be said about every single Hadith…and there are hundreds and thousands of hadith

Ibn Hajar said:

Katam is a plant from Yemen which produces a reddish-black dye. Henna produces a red dye, so when they are used together as a dye, they produce a colour that is between black and red.

Did the first believers use katam?  Yes, they did that and so did the Messenger of Allah.
Muhammad was very metosexual...seriously!

It was reported that Bukhari said that ‘Uthmaan ibn ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Wahb said: we entered upon Umm Salamah and she brought out a lock of hair of the Messenger of Allah to show us, and it was dyed red. and Ahmad added: “… with henna and katam.”
Ok, that’s just weird.  Muhammad had just died and all they wanted to know was if his hair was dyed?  Stupid hadith

Ibn al-Qayyim said:

What is forbidden is making the hair pure black, but if something else is added to henna, such as katam etc., there is nothing wrong with that.
And Allaah knows best.
But here is something very wrong in forbidding what Allah has not.  I remind the believers…
16:116 But say not - for any false thing that your tongues may put forth,- "This is lawful, and this is forbidden," so as to ascribe false things to Allah. For those who ascribe false things to Allah, will never prosper
Yeah scholars, knock it off or you’ll make the believers poor.

But what about this issue of grey hair?  Can you trust the scholars?  Can you trust the Hadith? 
Funny you should ask

A Muslim asks a scholar

What is the ruling on plucking grey hairs? Is there any differentiation between the hair on one’s head and the hair of the beard?
And the scholar replies
Praise be to Allah.

Grey hairs will be light for the Muslim on the Day of Resurrection, as is stated in this hadith. Tirmidhi said; It is narrated that Ka’b ibn Murrah said: I heard the Messenger of Allah say: “If a person’s hair turns grey in Islam, it will be light for him on the Day of Resurrection.”
But Bukhari and Muslims said…
Too late.  Should have read this Hadith, first, huh?

In Musnad Ahmad and Sunan al-Tirmidhi it is narrated from ‘Amr ibn ‘Absah that the Messenger of Allah said: “If a person’s hair turns grey for the sake of Allah, it will be light for him on the Day of Resurrection.”
If you die now you might not be able to see in heaven.  Hadith should come with warnings.

Al-Bayhaqi narrated in Shu’ab al-Eemaan that ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Amr said: The Messenger of Allah said: “Grey hair is the light of the Muslim; no man’s hair turns grey in Islam but for every grey hair he will have one hasanah and will rise one degree in status.”

This hadith has supporting evidence in the hadith of Abu Hurayrah, that the Prophet said: “Do not pluck out grey hairs, for they will be light on the Day of Resurrection. If a man’s hair turns grey in Islam, for each grey hair he will have one hasanah and will rise one degree in status.”
There!  It must be true!  There’s a Hadith to back up the Hadith.

If it were said that it is forbidden because the prohibition is stated so clearly, that would not be far off the mark, and there is no difference between plucking hairs from the beard or the head. End quote.
Translation;  all the strange names you just read, they are Allah.  Because only Allah can forbid or not forbid.
6:150  Say: "Bring forward your witnesses to prove that Allah did forbid so and so." If they bring such witnesses, be not thou amongst them: Nor follow thou the vain desires of such as treat our signs as falsehoods, and such as believe not in the Hereafter: for they hold others as equal with their Guardian-Lord
And Allah knows best
To dye or not to dye, that is the question.  Or maybe the question should be, do you want your eyeballs to work when you get to heaven?

A Muslim asks a scholar

Is it permissible to have a hair transplant? Please note that I am bald. Or is it haraam like hair extensions, or not?
And the scholar replies
Praise be to Allaah.

Hair transplant refers to moving the hair follicles from one area of a person’s head to another. The ruling on that is that it is permissible, because it is aimed at correcting a fault, not at changing the creation of Allaah.
Reading skills.  The dude said he was bald.  There are no hair follicles.

Shaykh Muhammad ibn ‘Uthaymeen was asked:

Hair transplants are done for one who has become bald by taking hair from the back of the head and transplanting it in the bald spot. Is that permissible?

He replied:

Yes, that is permissible, because this comes under the heading of restoring that which Allah has created, or correcting a fault; it does not come under the heading of cosmetic procedures or adding to what Allah has created, so it is not regarded as changing the creation of Allah. Rather it is restoring something that is lacking or removing a fault. There is the well-known story of the three people, one of whom was bald and said that he wished that Allah would restore his hair, so the angel touched him and Allah restored his hair and gave him beautiful hair.
But no, then they would be imitating the kuffar and by now most of you know about the Hadith of imitating a kuffar, if you imitate one you become one...then go to hellfire…where it would probably be better if your eyeballs didn't work....so go ahead and die your hair.

And last, for the ladies…well I think it’s for the ladies…

A Muslim asks a scholar

I have check this topics and you have answered my question but i was looking for more information. My question if sisters put nail polish and if they have to do wudoo they have to remove and do wudoo but what about the hair dye can we do wudoo with hair dye.
And the scholar replies
Praise be to Allah.

It seems – and Allah knows best –that what is put on the hair or used to make the hair stick together, such as henna and the like, does not affect wudoo’, rather it is sufficient to wipe over it.
Just one of the many, many things that Allah forgot to mention in the Quran.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said:

If a woman plasters her hair with henna or something similar, she may wipe over it, there is no need remove the substance in question, because it was proven that the Prophet used to apply something to make his hair stick together when in ihraam.
That’s true.  I have it in my book.  And there is another Hadith that talks about him not being able to remove the sticky stuff.

I wonder if any of the 70,000 fashion police hired in Iran would consider this to be a glamorous look..?

What is put on the head and makes the hair stick together becomes part of it, which indicates that there is some lenience with regard to purification of the head.

And Allaah knows best
I’m pretty sure Allah doesn’t want you to have a sticky head.

6:56 Say: "I am forbidden to worship those - others than Allah - whom ye call upon." Say: "I will not follow your wain desires: If I did, I would stray from the path, and be not of the company of those who receive guidance."
because those who receive guidance do not listen to these silly men who probably have sticky dyed hair.

2:23  And if ye are in doubt as to what We have revealed from time to time to Our servant, then produce a verse/sura like it; and call your witnesses or helpers besides Allah, if your doubts are true
They would produce Hadith.
Hadith is not a religion, it is not seen as sacred even by scholars, who can't seem to make up their minds about hadith.  But the Quran is clear--no hadith! 31;6
