Is hair transplant halal?

According to the great contemporary scholars of Islam, hair transplantation is halal in Islam, it is not haram because it does not consist of a removal or a modification of the creation of Allah, this opinion is notably supported by Sheikh ibn al Otheimine and Sheikh ibn Baz.

This opinion is also adopted by many other Muslim scholars who distinguish between on the one hand the modification of the creation and on the other hand repairing the creation, on 'ilm char'i the question is also detailed. As far as hair transplant is concerned we are therefore rather on a reconstructive surgery than an aesthetic surgery.


The islamqa website also offers fatwas on this topic.
