Impermissible haircuts/hairstyles mentioned in Hadith

Question

I have read regarding the hijab resembling the camel hump. Is there any other forbidden haircut/hairstyle mentioned in Hadith?

 

Answer

The Hadith you are referring to can be seen here. In another Hadith, Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) prohibited shaving part of the head. See here

Generally, any haircut/hairstyle that resembles or imitates the disbelievers would be deemed forbidden as Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever imitates a nation is from among them.” (Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 4027)

 

Kindly refer to a Mufti/Darul Ifta for a fatwa on this issue.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
