Hair dye

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I want to ask that if I dye my hair using ordinary dying agents available in the market, would it be an obstacle for my wudhu? Moreover, is it permissible to use dye in black colour?



1. If it is porous, it will be permissible and the wudhu will be valid.

2. Black dye has been prohibited in the Ahaadith. Hence, one should avoid using black dye.

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