Q: I am a 16-year old student in the institute of Al-Azhar. My problem is that I have a very large nose and I fear that when I grow up, the nose will grow larger. Anyone who sees my nose considers it terrible.Secondly, I suffer from psychological problems because of my nose. Whenever I sit with someone and he looks at my big nose, he makes fun of me. It depresses me to sit with friends so I began to avoid sitting with them lest I should hear the sarcastic comments. I became an introvert as if an outcast.Thirdly, whenever I see someone with a small nose although he is big, I suffer severely.

I am in dire need of this widespread surgery. My concern is that I fear I change the creation of Allah as mentioned in the Qur'an. I went to the hospital to arrange the procedures. I took this step due to the psychological problems I have; especially since I am an adolescent boy. I tried to be brief in describing my problem as I appreciate your valued time. I ask whether it is permissible to have this surgery or not.
If the reality is as you have mentioned and this surgery is safe, there will be nothing wrong with having it.
