f:679 -    Applying Mehndi to small children
Country : India,
Name : Shujauddin
Question:     On occasions of Eid, etc. women apply Mehndi to small boys and say that they are small children, so they are doing nothing wrong.  Is this approach correct?
............................................................................
Answer:     This act of women is unreasonable, as applying Mehndi, as an adornment, is permissible only for women.  Applying Mehndi to the hands and legs of small boys is not correct.  As given in Fatawa A'alamgiri, Vol. 5, Pg. No. 359.

And Allah Most High knows best.
