Title: Dyeing hair and going for Hajj


I am a married female. My husband wants me to dye my hair and cut is it permissible also we are planning to go for hajj insha Allah this year because its permanant colour it may not come out by the time we go for hajj. Will my hajj be accepted if my hair has colour. 

Jazak Allah


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is permissible for a woman to dye her hair any colour besides black. [1]

If you perform Hajj with your hair dyed, your Hajj will be valid.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

وَلَا بَأْسَ بِخِضَابِ الرَّأْسِ وَاللِّحْيَةِ بِالْحِنَّاءِ وَالْوَشْمَةِ لِلرِّجَالِ وَالنِّسَاءِ لِأَنَّ ذَلِكَ سَبَبٌ لِزِيَادَةِ الرَّغْبَةِ وَالْمَحَبَّةِ بَيْنَ الزَّوْجَيْنِ


الدر المختار وحاشية ابن عابدين (رد المحتار) (6/ 756)

 ومذهبنا أن الصبغ بالحناء والوسمة حسن كما في الخانية قال النووي: ومذهبنا استحباب خضاب الشيب للرجل والمرأة بصفرة أو حمرة وتحريم خضابه بالسواد على الأصح لقوله - عليه الصلاة والسلام - «غيروا هذا الشيب واجتنبوا السواد»

الفتاوى الهندية (44/ 48)

جُنُبٌ اخْتَضَبَ وَاخْتَضَبَتْ امْرَأَتُهُ بِذَلِكَ الْخِضَابِ قَالَ أَبُو يُوسُفَ رَحِمَهُ اللَّهُ تَعَالَى لَا بَأْسَ بِهِ وَلَا تُصَلِّي فِيهِ وَإِنْ كَانَ الْجُنُبُ قَدْ غَسَلَ مَوْضِعَ الْخِضَابِ فَلَا بَأْسَ بِأَنْ تُصَلِّيَ فِيهِ كَذَا فِي فَتَاوَى قَاضِي خَانْ


سنن أبي داود ت الأرنؤوط (6/ 268)

عن أبي ذرٍّ، قال: قال رسولُ الله -صلَّى الله عليه وسلم -: "إن أحسَنَ ما غُيِّر به هذا الشَيبُ الحِنَّاءُ والكَتَمُ"


سنن أبي داود ت الأرنؤوط (6/ 267)

حدَّثنا أحمدُ بنُ عمرو بن السَّرح وأحمدُ بنُ سعيدٍ الهمداني، قالا: حدَّثنا ابنُ وهْبٍ، أخبرني ابنُ جُريجٍ، عن أبي الزُّبير

عن جابر بنِ عبدِ اللهِ، قال: أُتي بأبي قُحافَةَ يومَ فتحِ مكَّة ورأسُه ولحيتُه كالثَّغامَةِ بيَاضاً، فقال رسولُ الله -صلَّى الله عليه وسلم -: "غيِّروا هذا بشيء، واجتنبوا السَّواد
