Can Muslims have tattoos on their body?

Can muslims have a tatoo


Could you please advise if Muslims can have tattoos, maybe something in detail as i cant find anything online about it.



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.


As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.


It is impermissible to get a tattoo made be it of animate objects, inanimate objects or designs.


The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said:


لَعَنَ اللَّهُ الوَاصِلَةَ وَالمُسْتَوْصِلَةَ، وَالوَاشِمَةَ وَالمُسْتَوْشِمَةَ[1]


Translation: “Allah has cursed anyone who joins hair together and the person to whose hair it is joined and those who make tattoos and those on whose bodies’ tattoos are made.”


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best



[1] وَقَالَ ابْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ: حَدَّثَنَا يُونُسُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ، حَدَّثَنَا فُلَيْحٌ، عَنْ زَيْدِ بْنِ أَسْلَمَ، عَنْ عَطَاءِ بْنِ يَسَارٍ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ: «لَعَنَ اللَّهُ الوَاصِلَةَ وَالمُسْتَوْصِلَةَ، وَالوَاشِمَةَ وَالمُسْتَوْشِمَةَ»

(صحيح البخاري، ج7، ص165، دار طوق النجاة)

وَالْوَاشِمَةُ: الَّتِي تَشِمُ فِي الْوَجْهِ وَالذِّرَاعِ، وَهُوَ أَنْ تَغْرِزَ الْجِلْدَ بِإِبْرَةٍ ثُمَّ يُحْشَى بِكُحْلٍ أَوْ نَيْلٍ فَيَزْرَقُّ؛ وَالْمُسْتَوْشِمَةُ الَّتِي يُفْعَلُ بِهَا ذَلِكَ

(الاختيار لتعليل المختار، ج4، ص164، مطبعة الحلبي)
