Nose surgery

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I have a very wide nose. Whenever I look at my nose I feel stressed and low confidence when meeting with people. My intention is not to look beautiful but I just want to get confidence. Can I undergo nose surgery to make my nose little smaller.


A: There is no need for you to undergo surgery to change the look of your nose. After surgery, there is no guarantee that it will look as you expect. Do not be concerned about the comments and opinions of people.

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