f:330 -    Tying hair in a bun
Country : Chicago, USA,
Name : Zahina Affrin Shaik Nasqhbandi
Question:     I want to know about tying the hair in a bun.  We women do so.  I have heard that it should not be done.  Is it correct?
............................................................................
Answer:     Tying the hair in a bun is permissible, but tying a bun in the middle of the head like the hump of a camel is impermissible.  

There is a Hadith in Sahih Muslim in which the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) declares such women to be a group of hell who are nude in spite of wearing clothes i.e. they wear revealing clothes, who attract others to themselves or are attracted towards others, their heads are like the hump of a camel.  They will not enter paradise and will not even get its fragrance and indeed, the fragrance of paradise can be had from such and such a distance.  (Sahih Muslim, Hadith No. 2128)

And Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) knows best.
