Answer:


 

Working as hair dresser

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Because Islam has declared absolute zero-tolerance regarding the mixing of the sexes, it would be absolutely impermissible for a believing man to touch or style the hair of non-mehram women, or for a believing woman to touch or style the hair of non-mehram men!

 

Secondly, if an act is declared as forbidden in Islam, regardless of whether or not one depends on it to feed ones family, that act would still remain forbidden for the believers. Just because one depends on it to feed the family does not make a forbidden thing permissible in Islam!

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

Burhan
