Wearing a Wig is Prohibited

[28] And with the same chain of narration that Mu’awiya Ibn Abu Sufyan said from the minbar in the year that he performed the Hajj, holding a lock of hair which he took from one of his guards and said “People of Madinah! Where are your learned men? I heard the Messenger of Allah (Sallalahu Alayhi Was-Sallam) forbid the like of this, saying, ‘The Bani Isra’il were destroyed when their women started to use this.’”  



Al-Muwatta (Yahya’s narration 2/947 hadith no.1829, book 51, chapter 1, hadith no.2) at-Tamhid (7/216), al-Istidhkar: (no.1765)  

Transmitted by Bukhari (no.3468) and Muslim (no.2127) from the hadith of Malik.


1) Opposing Allah and His Messenger (Sallalahu Alayhi Was-Sallam) is a cause for destruction.

2) If the actions of the people of Madinah are against the book (Quran) and Sunnah then they are not proof.

3) Malik Ibn Abu Amir al-Asbahi al-Madani (a major tabi’i)  said, “I recognise nothing nowadays of what I saw the people (i.e. the companions of the Messenger, (Sallalahu Alayhi Was-Sallam) doing (in accordance to the book [Qur’an] and Sunnah) except the call to prayer.” (Muwatta Imam Malik Yahya’s narration (1/72) hadith (no.152) [and its chain is authentic])

4) Wearing a wig is prohibited.

5) It is an obligatory responsibility of the scholars to command the good and forbid  the evil.
