Dyeing hair for the husband

Answered as per Shafi'i Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Amjad Rasheed

Is it permissible for a woman to dye her hair if her husband wants her to? Must she obey him?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Yes, it is permissible for a woman to dye her hair with henna or something like it, whether her husband permits her to or not. But if he requests this from her, it seems that she must obey him, as long as it doesn’t harm her, because the husband has a purpose in asking her to beautify herself.

السؤال: هل يجوز للمرأة أن تغيير لون شعرها إن طلب الزوج ذلك ؟ هل يجب عليها أن تطيعه في مثل هذا ؟ الجواب : نعم يجوز للمرأة تغييرُ لون شعرها بالحناء ونحوها سواء أذن لها زوجُها بذلك أم لا ، لكن إن أمرها به فالظاهر وجوب ذلك عليها طالما كان لا يضرُّ بها ؛ لأن للزوج غرضاً في تزيينها له .
