Ruling on hair transplants for a bald man

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is it permissible for a bald man to have hair transplanted to his head, because some men suffer with that, especially if they are young?.

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked about the ruling on taking hair from the back of the head and transplanting it in the affected spot. He said: Yes, that is permissible, because it comes under the heading of restoring that which Allaah has created, and of correcting a fault. It does not come under the heading of cosmetic procedures or adding to that which Allaah has created, or changing the creation of Allaah. Rather it is restoring something that is missing and correcting a fault. It is well known in the story of the three men, one of whom was bald and said that he wished that Allaah would give him back his hair, that the angel touched his head and Allaah gave him back his hair, and gave him beautiful hair. Al-Bukhaari, 3464; Muslim, 2964. 

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