Q: My husband lost all his hair to the point where he is bald. His not even 30 yet. However he wants to use a weave on his own head so it looks like he has hair. As far as I’m aware it’s not allowed in Islam as it uses glue and wig. However my husband seems to think it is allowed. Could you please clarify.


A: If it is synthetic it is permissible, but you need to ensure that the glue is removed at the time of ghusl and wudhu.

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