Darul Ulum issues fatwa against beauty parlours

April 04, 2012 14:35 IST

Islamic seminary Darul Ulum Deoband has issued a fatwa against beauty parlours, saying running such a place is against Shariat law.

The fatwa was issued in response to a question posed before the Darul Uloom, asking whether the profession of running beauty parlours by Muslim women is justified by the law according to the Shariat.

The fatwa said Muslim women are not permitted to practice this profession under Shariat.

"Women are not allowed to run beauty parlours as it is against the norms of pardah," said Mufti Arif of Darul Ulum Deoband.
