How Should the Hair be Parted?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Mahmoodiyah


Old people say that a girl has to make the centre partition of hair? If she makes on the left side she is on the wrong way….so she has to make centre partition to follow the straight path is there anything as such….no left side partition or no right side partition….only make the centre partition of the hair kindly answer this question at the earliest……thanks




We have not come across any Hadith or verdict of any jurist verifying the belief mentioned in your question. It is permissible for the lady to adopt any hairstyle so long as it does not resemble the hairstyles adopted by the non-Muslims.

Nabi (S.A.W.) preferred keeping a centre partition in his hair.
