Ear piercing

Fatwaa ID: 1440

What is the ruling for women’s ear piercings? Is it permissible to get more than one, on the bottom or the top of the ear, not for the purpose of showing off or beaurification for others, but is she does hijab and her intentions is solely to get them for her own interest and hobby?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

It is permissible for a woman to have multiple ear piercings provided that they are not in following the trends of the immoral and degenerate ones and that there are no religious connotations to them. Likewise, one should ensure that the piercing is not harmful to the body.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
