Men Wearing Earrings

By Mufti Ebrahim Desai


Q.) What does Islam say about men getting their ears pierced and wearing earrings in one or both ears?

A.) The wearing of earrings and the piercing of ears are prohibited for men.

1. Nabi Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam cursed those women who imitate men and those men who imitate women. In another narration, Nabi Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam cursed those men who make their outward appearance like women and those women who make their outward appearance like men.

2. Nabi Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam cursed those men who wear the clothes of woman and those women who wear the clothes of men.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
