Is piercing allowed?



In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful




Body piercing will not be allowed in Islam, however, ear-piercing as long as it is pierced once i.e., in other words, the same ear is not pierced two or three times to put on extra earrings. Nose piercing is allowed, however, some scholars have disliked it.
