Tattoos In Islam. by Taamas111 (m): 3:42pm on January 11

Question:

Why are tattoos banned in
Islam? No they don't affect
health, nothing will happen to
you if you get a little tattoo.
Also, if it affects Tahaarah, that
is not true. Does God Almighty
care about a little centimeter of
dotted skin?

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah,
The Lord of the Worlds. I testify
that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that
Muhammad is His slave and
Messenger.
You have to know that Allah is
All-Wise in His Legislation and
Decree; His Words are The
Truth, and His Rulings are Just.
Allah Says (what means): {And the
Word of your Lord has been fulfilled in
truth and in justice.} [Quran 6:115]. All
that Allah has Legislated is of
Complete Wisdom. Allah has
made some things lawful
because they are very beneficial,
and has forbidden other things
because they are very harmful.
However, a human being might
not know the reason behind all
this. The evidence about the
ignorance of a human being is
that he constantly explores and
invents things that he was
unaware of in the past.

Therefore, it is an obligation on
the Muslim to submit himself to
Allah's Decree as Allah Says
(what means): {It is not for a
believer, man or woman, when Allah
and His Messenger have decreed a
matter that they should have any option
in their decision…} [Quran 33:36].
The first thing that can be said
about the wisdom of forbidding
tattoos is that it is confirmed
that the Prophet forbade it
and it is a revelation from Allah
as the Prophet does not
speak of his own desires. There
is no harm if after believing and
acknowledging the truth and
acting upon Allah's Order and
upon the narrations of the
Prophet to seek the wisdom
behind such prohibition. Imam
Al-Bukhari reported that
Abu Juhayfah said: "The
Prophet cursed those ladies who
practice tattooing and those who get
themselves tattooed."

Among the wisdoms that the
scholars have mentioned
is that having tattoos is
considered as changing the
creation of Allah, and in some
narrations the following
addition has been mentioned "…
whereby they change Allah's
creation." [Al-Bukhari and
Muslim] In addition to this,
having a tattoo subjects the
body to pain without a
preponderant need or benefit
and this is forbidden.
Finally, tattoos do not affect the
purity of a person as they are
under the skin and do not
prevent water from reaching the
skin.
Allah Knows best.
