Woman repair teeth lawful no sin

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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 6.408 Narrated by Al-Qama

Abdullah (bin Masud) said that the Messenger of Allah (saws) invoked the curse of Allah upon those ladies who practice tattooing and those who get themselves tattooed, and those ladies who remove the hair from their faces (eye-brows), and those who make artificial spaces between their teeth in order to look more beautiful whereby they change Allah's creation.


If one has un-uniform teeth, or troublesome or irregular growth, or missing teeth, or a genuine medical need or pain, etc. that demands repair of ones teeth, there is absolutely no harm and no sin in seeking dental help and repairing ones teeth. The prohibition is specifically against the forming of artificial or uniform gaps between teeth as a manifestation of beauty, not against the needed repair of ones teeth. And Allah Alone Knows Best.


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,
