Piercing the belly

Q: I want to know if piercing my belly button is makrooh or haram to do it for my husband, knowing that I am covering myself and wear hijab.


A: No, it is not permissible. It is imitating the kuffaar and fujjaar (irreligious), hence it should be avoided.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
