Dyeing hair with brown color

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is it permissible for a women to dye her hair brown using a hair dye? And I don't want to use henna because it doesn't work on my hair. (although I know it is sunnah to use it)
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah .

There is nothing wrong with dyeing your hair brown even if you do not use henna. What is not allowed is to dye one's hair black, because of the hadeeth narrated from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) (see question #261 )


Similarly it is not permitted to dye one's hair in a manner that imitates the kuffaar, like the "punks" why dye their hair in all kinds of colours. We ask Allaah for safety and health.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
