Q: Is it permissible to use henna which, after washed out leaves a black coloured stain instead of red? Is this tashabbuh bil kuffar? (tattoo)
A: Presently, the colour black is being linked with some type of a wrong cult. Hence, if this colour has got anything to do with a cult then avoid it.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
