What is the ruling on tattoos?
Does having a tattoo represent an impediment to someone performing the obligatory Hajj?
All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions.
Tattoos on the body are Haram (prohibited), as it was authentically reported: (Part No. 5; Page No. 199)
“The Prophet (peace be upon him) cursed the woman who adds false hair and the woman who gets false hair added to her own; and the woman who tattoos and the woman who has herself tattooed.”
Tattoo can be applied to cheeks, lips, or any other part of the body, and can be blue, green, or black. However, tattoos are not an impediment to performing Hajj.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
