Hair transplant

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it permissible to have an FUE hair transplant? This is an operation wherein hair follicles are extracted from the back of the neck and from the sides of it (over the two ears) in the form of follicular units (graft) with no cutting involved, by using micro motors equipped with special punch tips of 0,6–0.1 mm. Follicular units are transplanted in thin or bald areas in their natural form without any operation whatsoever. I heard that it is haraam to use wigs or artificial hair to cover bald spots however this procedure involves the use of one’s own hair.

Bismillaah

A: This is not permissible.

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