Is It True That a Woman Should Not Comb Her Hair Every Day?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Maulana Mubarak Patel


Is it true that a woman should not comb her hair every day?

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


Islam promotes neatness and tidiness at all times. One should always stay in a state of tidiness. The Prophet Muhammad SAW in many prophetic narrations encouraged us to keep our hair neat and tidy. However, scholars have said a few days should be missed in between if there is no necessity. If there is a need to comb the hair every day, then one should do so. The purpose of not combing the hair every day is to not waste time and to avoid a person becoming vain.
