Turkey’s Directorate of religious affairs (Diyanet) has said it is inappropriate for men to dye their hair black according to Islam.
“Dyeing one’s hair, moustache or beard is allowed only if the aim is not to deceive people. But it is never admissible for a man to dye his hair black. It is considered inappropriate,” reads the statement from the highest Islamic authority in the country, according to Ansamed.info.
The fatwa came in answer to a question lodged on the Diyanet’s website.
