Tattoos....are They Or Aren't They Haram?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Salaamu alaikum

I know the subject of tattoos has been discussed on here many times before, but I can not find any clear, concise information. Just a lot of opinions and discussion on why someone would want a tattoo in the first place.

I would like clarification if they are haram or not. If they aren't, is it haram to tattoo suras from the Qur'an or suras in calligraphy that have the name of Allah (swt) or the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)?

I am looking for links to suras from the Qur'an or hadiths that say tattooing is haram. Does anyone have a ruling from Ayatollah Sistani?

Thank you in advance to anyone who posts links or can direct me in the way of fatwas.

    • Jazakallah khair. Thank you so much for telling me to read the Quran. I read the Quran to sleep and made dua to be in the right way and alhamdulilah I was blessed with a dream of the prophet telling me I am on the right path of shia. Jazak Allah khair!
    • Thank You so much. Alhamdulilah. I have been guided. Jazak Allah khair. I am shia and proud
    • As per my aql the punishment (qital) is not ok. I am a simple man. I find reasons in every thing. I have reason to believe in existence of God and not because my parents are Muslims. I have reason to believe on Muhammad S.A.W and Prophets A.S before that. I have reason to have what ever  belief i have. 
      What i am trying to say is that we all know and came across different ahadees being associated to Muhammad S.A.W which "aql" cant begin to comprehend that he could have said such a thing. So associating something to Imama A.S is not such a big deal for "historians". But as all sects of muslims agree on this, i presume its the rightful punishment but still it does not mean that i am ok with it. I think humans have time to repent till natural death. Obviously if Imam A.S have truly ruled this in particular matter then my emotions or aql is useless and that's the way to go. I was browsing through Quora when i came across this question by a non-muslim. "Does Quran says that kill a person that leaves Islam?" Now we claim that Quran is most complete and authentic book. Also "Surely, God does not shy away from teaching you truth" [33:53]. How do one answers a non believer ?
    • The four fingers in Arabic are considered "hand". But yes, you're correct. There are many misconceptions.
