What should be the niyyah of a girl who wants to
get her nose and/or ears pierced? At what age is it appropriate?
In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
Allah Ta‘āla has permitted a woman to beautify and adorn herself with jewellery. This is a bounty of Allah Ta‘āla. The intention of having the nose or ears pierced should be to benefit from the bounties of Allah Ta‘āla for which a woman should be thankful.
Furthermore, the parent or guardian of the young woman may choose to decide which age is appropriate for her to adorn herself with jewellery.
And Allah Ta‘āla Knows Best
