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.

Current rain and thundershowers contribute to the microbial action and may generate enough latent heat to ignite. 3] "Hysteria" is this article's word:  https://www.vox.com/energy-and-environment/2017/9/25/16360488/hurricane-maria-2017-puerto-rico-recovery-san-juan-hospitals-electricity-cell-service 
    • To further what br @Ron_Burgundy said, the New Testament talks about someone coming after Jesus, referring to him as the Comforter: John 14:16:
      And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; John 15:26
      But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me John 16:7
      Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. John 16:13
      Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
        The Comforter translated into Arabic means Ahmed. Also, the Prophet was known as the Truthful one. Now, compare John 16:13 with Quran 53:1-6 says: [Shakir 53:1] I swear by the star when it goes down.
      [Shakir 53:2] Your companion does not err, nor does he go astray;
      [Shakir 53:3] Nor does he speak out of desire.
      [Shakir 53:4] It is naught but revelation that is revealed,
      [Shakir 53:5] The Lord of Mighty Power has taught him,
      [Shakir 53:6] The Lord of Strength; so he attained completion, Hope this helps.
    • salam brother. i read the questions you posted to your scholars and to be honest, you hit the nail on the head. these are exactly some of the questions i am looking answers for, and not just from shias. very similar questions apply to sunni literature as well. did you get any response to the questions where you were told that it is better to answer you in person? it would be really really helpful if you did.
    • Brother this was a very nice argument you gave, I am also curious what if The Prophet is Rasoolullah [sawa] and Eijah is Imam Ali [as]?    Of course brother  you know any sites that I can contact Ayatollahs/Allamas?
