    As a Muslim male, am I allowed to get cornrows?


    Dreams feel real while we're in them. It's only when we wake up do we realize something was actually strange.

    Dead locks and the like are not permissible, because when you have wudu' water doesn't reach all the hair also when being in a state of impurity.
    secondly it would be an act of imitating the Kufar which is not permissible.
    And Allah knows best

      Dreadlocks and cornrows are different. Cornrows are just tight braids. The wudu water would still reach your head (it might be easier) the only time it would be difficult is if you have to do ghusl. You'd have to take them out if you do that. Women get them all the time, it's not really copying the Kuffar.

      I know it sounds really bad, but it's weird when a white guy has cornrows. :S
      وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُواْ لِي وَلْيُؤْمِنُواْ بِي لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ
      "And when My servants ask you (O Muhammad concerning Me, then answer them), I am indeed near (to them by My knowledge). I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me (without any mediator or intercessor). So let them obey Me and believe in Me, so that they may be led aright."
      Surah al-Baqarah ayah 186

        By the morning brightness and by the night when it grows still, your Lord has not forsaken you [Prophet], nor does He hate you, and the future will be better for you than the past; your Lord is sure to give you so much that you will be well satisfied.

              I don't think you'd look nice with those kind of cornrows wolfn, I also think it looks a bit ugly when a white man has them because the texture of their hair is usually soft or straight and it makes the scalp in between really visible and it looks a bit bald. ETA ur native american so maybe ur hair is thicker?

              The thicker the hair the better it looks.

                    Well dread no more, I speak my mind freely I don't hold anything back, its a subjective, and I have every right to voice that opinion, its less obvious on darker skin so its not pronounced as much

                        Its not 'slagging them off' and its not coz black people usually have them. Even black women with thin hair dont look good with cornrows lol it just happens to be a fact of life that usually white people have softer hair. I don't think white women look nice with afro's or that black men look nice with relaxed hair *shudders* doesn't mean your slagging them off. Its the hair not the face lol
