2. If yes are there any conditions attached to it like, if it is to be Done the sister will need to wear the proper attire like veil and stuff!



Wa Alaikum As Salaam,

The only body piercing which all scholars have allowed for females is that of the ears. Some scholars have allowed females to pierce the nose only one time (at one place). No other body piercing is allowed.

With respect to attire, sisters must always wear the proper attire at all times whether piercing was done or not.
