The ruling regarding dying some hairs or some parts of the hair

The question:

Is it permissible for a woman to have dyed streaks put in her hair (hair highlight), which is a special tint of hair?

The answer:

All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. Peace and blessing be upon whom Allah sent as a mercy to the Worlds, upon his Family, his Companions and his Brothers till the Day of Resurrection.

Apparently, it is not permissible to dye some hairs or some parts of hair. It is not also permissible for a woman to have streaks of her hair dyed, as it does not belong to the adornment of Muslims. Rather, it is a sort of resembling heads of the disbelieving and loose women. Moreover, it is considered a change of the original creation of Allah, and represents unfairness as regards her hair.

The perfect knowledge belongs to Allah عزَّ وجلَّ. Our last prayer is all praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. Peace and blessing be upon our Prophet صلَّى الله عليه وسلَّم, his Family, his Companions and Brothers till the Day of Resurrection.
