3046: Body piercing


What is the ruling on piercing the skin around the navel (belly-button) and inserting a metal ring?

Praise be to Allaah. 

We put this question to Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Jibreen (may Allaah preserve him), who answered as follows:

This is self-inflicted torture. This is not a place where adornments are usually worn, and there is no benefit in this practice. It comes under the heading of changing the creation of Allaah. And Allaah knows best.

Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Jibreen
