Is braiding Sunnah

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Tafseer Raheemi


Is braiding of the hair a Sunnah for men?  I’ve heard about this from a few people but can not find any evidence of this. And if it is Sunnah can you explain it or provide a picture of it insha’allah.



No, it is not Sunnah – Sunnah is something Rasulullah Sallallahu alayhi wasallam did on a regular basis – and this is not the case of braiding. It was only once when Rasulullah Sallallahu alayhi wasallam came for fathe Makkah that he made four braids and this was because he was wearing an armour and a metal cap. So his hair was sticking out from the sides so he Sallallahu alayhi wasallam braided them.
