It is no secret that Muslim women love trying new beauty treatments and products. Whether it’s the beauty bloggers, makeup artists or regular women, many Muslim women follow a strict beauty regime. It can include regular skincare to getting sefmi-permanent treatments. Therefore, the beauty industry is adjusting itself to make more and more treatments and products accessible to Muslim community. However, there are still some confusion towards certain semi-permanent treatments like microblading, laser etc. Whether these treatments are in line with the teachings or Islam or not. That is why they want an answer to an essential question – is microblading halal?
Like the rest of the world, Muslim women indulge in the latest treatments and are the biggest consumers of beauty products.
According to some reports, women in Saudi Arabia spend more on makeup than food, transport or clothes. Similarly, Dubai is on its way to become the beauty capital of the world. At the same time, Muslim women need reassurance about their makeup products and beauty treatments. Can they use semi-permanent eyeliner? Is it forbidden to get eyelashes extension? Is microblading halal? These are the kinds of questions that Muslims beauty fanatics have been asking from beauty experts as well as Islamic scholars.
Last year, Dar Al-Ifta, an Egyptian advisory, judiciary and governmental body which works as a center for Islamic research, issued a decree which answered the question that is microblading halal? According to this decree, women are allowed to get tattoo or similar procedures done, as long as they are not permanent. The only condition is that the procedure does not inflict any pain, bodily harm or spillage of blood. Therefore, microblading is halal, and within the constraints and teachings of Islam.
For Pakistani Muslim women, to get the answer to the question, is microblading halal, is equally essential.
In order to get in step with the rest of the world, Pakistani women are also turning to microblading and other semi-permanent treatments. It is becoming popular among all ages and lifestyles. According to some reports, microblading in Karachi is mostly famous among 40 or 50 year old women. However, even they had confusion and nagging questions regarding it. Similar to the global Muslim community, they too needed to know if microblading is halal. Therefore, they needed someone who could not only satisfy their queries but also is an expert at what she does.
Although it was founded in earlier this year, Brow Bar has since attracted clients from all walks of life, all lifestyles and genders. The founder of Brow Bar, Amina Hyatt Lak, aims to empower her clients to feel and look confident. However, Lak worked hard to reach the level of mastery and perfection she has today. While living in Dubai, she earned certification and training from an internationally acclaimed microblading expert. Through her training and practice, Lak herself has perfected her skills in microblading.
Before the actual procedure, Brow Bar clients have a consultation meeting to discuss the procedure. One of the most commonly asked question, is microblading halal, dominates the meeting. To which, Lak gives the following answer:
“It is the client’s right to ask us questions and our job is to satisfy them. Therefore, when my clients ask me if microblading is halal or haram, I give them the example of henna tattoo. Just like henna fades away after some time, the pigment used in microblading also blends in the skin and fades away at the given time. In Islam, only permanent tattoos are forbidden and microblading is the complete opposite of it.”
This is one of the many reasons Brow Bar founder have gained the trust of the clients and created a safe environment for them to enjoy their fabulous microbladed eyebrows without any guilt. So next time you feel doubtful about microblading, just walk through the doors of Brow Bar!
