Is Microblading Haram or Halal In Islam?

The reality is that we live in a time when visible content (on what is on the outside) is mass-produced and in some cases, crucial when it comes to the judgment of a person.

Accordingly, beauty has an enormous role in our lives, and this has been forever, the only thing that was changing is the beauty standards.

It is no phenomenon that the urge and need of women, but also males, for beautification is growing daily, and is even turning the standard norms of what is for men or women, the line is pretty blurred.

There are more and more individuals who care about looking flawless, not only online, but in real life.

If you look around you, you will witness that there are more and more beauty salons that are here to provide exactly what is being asked for – head-to-toe beautification favors.

The urge to beautify and be pretty is a natural and innate thing in women and now more and more when it comes to males.

And even in different religions, a woman needs to beautify and adorn herself for her husband; to look gorgeous in his eyes.

This is also recognized in the Quran – if it weren’t for that beautification and taking care of one’s appearance, both internal and external, a man would not require a woman.

However, a woman of faith should know that, and always, even when is in these beauty treatments, to be moderate.

All Muslim people should strive to be moderate, and not do anything that should disturb the perfect balance that is already given by Allah.

Now, one of the many beauty procedures is microblading – in short, putting a semi-permanent color on eyebrows, and the question is, is this halal based on Islamic law?

If it is haram, the question is why, and an additional question is if there is any situation where microblading is halal.

Is Microblading Haram or Halal In Islam? 

It is true that nowhere in Quran could be found a word of Microblading as it is, but this is not enough to say that Microblading is not haram.

Since it is more likely to be compared to tattooing, and we know that based on Islamic laws, tattoos are forbidden and are considered to be haram.

It is written that the Almighty Allah will punish any woman who has tattoos on her body.

For this reason, a believing woman should also be moderate in decorating and beautifying herself.

She should never neglect her beauty, but neither should he exaggerate it. Allah said that the beauty in the world is created and that He loves it.

A Muslim woman must take care of her appearance, beauty, and adornment – when it is not about people who are strangers to her.

So, she could be beautiful for her husband, and not for others, because of the chastity of her husband.

If this woman did not beautify herself and adorn herself for her husband, he could very easily look for those who beautify themselves, i.e. reach for haram, especially if he has weak faith.

Unfortunately, we will find that most women do not know how to beautify and adorn themselves except when leaving the house.

And as for her appearance in the house, in front of her husband: her hair is messy, her clothes smell of food, the skin on her face and hands is cracked, and her rings – if she wore them – are smeared.

Because of this appearance, the woman is blamed.

It is up to her to approach her husband’s heart with the most beautiful colors and his favorite scents.

He is ahead of everyone else.

In this sense, it is safe to presume, that if the reason for doing any beauty regimen is her appearance for her husband then it is halal unless the procedure is not ok based on the other standard of the Islamic faith.

In every other case, it is recommended for Muslim women to beauty themselves and to decorate, as long as they are moderate.

They should not neglect their appearance thinking that Islam requires them to have such a relationship with their body and appearance, and the religion of Islam is far from such behavior.

A Muslim woman must keep this in mind so that her actions do not turn others away from Islam, and she must always look after herself.

But, unfortunately for those who would want to do it, Microblading is not seen as halal in Islam, since it is very similar to tattooing which is forbidden.

Not only that tattooing is not allowed in Islam, but here the intention that is behind it is not halal in Islamic law – at the beginning of this piece we spoke of the need to be beautiful for a husband only, and also to be in all of this very moderate.

Is Microblading the same as tattooing?

But, some are saying that Microblading could not be the same as tattooing.

Well, if we want to look at how things are going, both from the medical and also from the cosmetical point of view, how are they different?

First of all, when you get a tattoo it goes into your skin and it is permanent.

If you want to take off a tattoo then it must be removed with a laser.

On the other hand, when we look at the Microblading process then we can say that the middle does not go deeply into the skin, it is not permanent for a lifetime, and it goes away for a couple of months.

But, despite these technicalities, Islamic law claims that there is nothing different between the two and that both of them are giving artificial color to the skin.

It is written that any pigmentation on the skin is haram and that it does not matter if the technique is called a tattoo or microblading.

So this is the verdict – Microblading is haram.

In the eyes of Allah, it is the same as tattooing, as it alters the exquisite design of Allah.

And this is just one way Shaytan works and leads believers in the wrong direction – as he makes people change their appearance and make sins, and changing the given picture of Allah is one way.

The accent in the Muslim faith is that we should be very grateful for what we have in life – we should be happy with the way Allah has made us.

Do not allow yourself to be deceit by Satan.

This is something that the believers of the Islamic faith must follow, and always think their actions are directed toward it; in everything, they do they must think not to betray the perfect creation form, Allah.

Is Eyebrow Tinting Halal?

For those who simply want to tint their eyebrows, and maintain their natural appearance, then it is halal to do so.

It is said that everything that you do to temporarily make yourself beautiful just like putting the makeup is seen as halal.

But, the condition is to keep a natural look.

When is Microblading Halal?

Microblading is halal only when it is done to cure an illness and when a person has one that has made that person lose their eyebrows.

Then it is allowed to microblade eyebrows.

It is said in Quran that when putting a tattoo is a cure then it is ok to be given, or applied.

What is Microblading?

Microblading of eyebrows is the drawing of eyebrows with the help of special, small blades – knives with which the pigment is introduced shallowly under the skin in the form of hairs drawn in the direction of natural eyebrow growth!

The pigments used on this occasion are safe and hypoallergenic, and the results are completely natural and adapt to the shape, size, and density of the eyebrows – thus achieving the most natural look.

This is a relatively quick treatment, lasting a maximum of an hour and a half, and almost completely painless, but requires detailed preparation and measurement to achieve the natural shape and density of the client’s eyebrows.

After eyebrow microblading is done, it is important to follow the beautician’s instructions for the next few days and avoid the sun, pool, gym, etc.

Permanent make-up, such as microblading, immediately after the treatment, the eyebrows look much darker and denser, but after these seven to ten days, the real natural look of the eyebrows is obtained.

After seven days, the first correction follows where the color and density can be corrected – and it is included in the price of the treatment.

Best of all, microblading eyebrows have very good durability, of course with occasional (annual) color corrections.

If you have previously undergone eyebrow tattooing or you are not satisfied with the experience with Japanese drawing and you need eyebrow correction -don’t worry.

The majority of salons and beauty parlors also do tattoo removal and badly done treatments.

Removing the tattoo from the eyebrows is done with the help of a laser, so that no visible traces remain, and then the eyebrows are drawn using the Japanese method.

In this way, eyebrow Microblading achieves completely natural results.


Therefore, Islam does not forbid a Muslim women to beautify and adorn themselves, on the contrary, it allows them to be beautiful but they need to do it for their husbands.

It is also not haram to wear nice clothes.

Do Islamic scholars say that you should never oppose nature?!

And Islam is also a natural religion.

Take care that your action is not haram or that it does not lead to haram, and you can do everything else.

So, your decorating has some limitations, so get to know them on this occasion – and plucking eyebrows or lengthening your hair with other people’s hair, and microblading is not allowed, since it changes the creation that comes from Allah.

When decorating yourself it is very important to never identify with unbelievers and those who are not close to faith and never to identify with men.

Such embellishment and dressing must not harm your body.

Your adornment must not be an obstacle to any of the Islamic regulations such as nail polish that prevents the arrival of water when performing ablution.

Not one woman should be spending a large part of her time adorning herself, spending a large amount of money for this purpose, being mesmerized and amazed by her appearance sitting and adorning herself in front of a mirror.

She must not be put in a position to expose the private part, as a result of which the shame is lost and, or postponing her prayer in order not to wash off the make-up, etc.

A woman must not be conspicuous and recognizable by her clothes, because such clothes are strictly prohibited.

There were several restrictions and conditions when decorating and beautifying.

If the situation is this – a woman does not have full eyebrows, and she is very self-aware because of this problem and thinks that she is not attractive to her man, then she wonders if can she perform this small cosmetic procedure so that her confidence boost and she becomes once again attractive to her man?

Some Islamic scholars say that Microblading in Islam could fall under the same category as tattooing.

It is very sinful to do in Islam.

So, if she does it just because, and you want to microblade your eyebrows just because you are not happy with them, you should not do it.

The other reason is the fact that microblading is very similar to tattooing, and it is not accepted by Muslim laws.

Anything permanent or semi-permanent is not allowed for sure.

The only scenario where microblading is halal, and not haram, comes in the case, where the woman or a man has the medical need to do it; then it is justifiable and halal to do so.
