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.
It is absolutely permissible in Shariah for a believing woman to adorn herself with jewelry anywhere she wills on her body.
Because the piercing of the belly was neither done nor was the norm for women at the time of the Prophet (saws), there is no specific command in the Quran or Sunnah prohibiting such an act; therefore it will be deemed permissible for a believing woman to pierce her belly, if indeed she wishes to do so.
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.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
