Are Breast Implants Haram?

03 November, 2023
Q As-salamu `alaykum. I have read all the information about breast implant, and pretty much taken the view that it is a sin. However, I have been married for 6 months now, and have always wanted a woman with large breasts. Eventually I settled for a girl with smaller breasts than I would have liked, because she has so many better qualities. However, now I feel like I have missed out, and really regret that I married a girl with small breasts. So much so, that I am honestly considering committing adultery. This is not just a whim, I have been thinking about it for some time now. I almost have hatred for her. Would it be permissible for my wife to have breast implants to please me, and to stop me from committing adultery? I have discussed having breast implanting with her, but I have not told her the reason, and she has agreed that she will have them.


Wa `alaykum as-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

In this fatwa:

Breast implanting for beautifying and not for medical-purposes is prohibited because it is an intentional change of Allah’s creation.

Responding to your question, Dr. Main Al-Qudah, Assistant Professor, AOU, IAU, SAA, Member of AMJA Fatwa Committee, and Imam, MAS Katy Center, stated:

It is the responsibility of both parties to attentively look at each other before proceeding with the marriage contract, obviously, to check the personal preferences on the potential life partner.

It is to be noted that breast implanting for beautifying- and not for medical-purposes is prohibited because it is an intentional change of Allah’s creation.

On the other hand, if you focus more on the good qualities your wife has, remember that the physical beauty does not last for long time, and that human desires are endless, you will feel more satisfaction and contentment with what Allah has destined for you.

What if after a while you wanted your wife to change her eyes color, or to have thicker lips, or shorter nose, or white skin, or… etc.? Are you going to ask her to fulfill all these requests to help you not to commit adultery?

Allah Almighty knows best.
