AOA.. Guide me is hymenoplasty allowed in Islam ?? If someone loses virginity though not through sex and is afraid because have heard that it is considered essential to bleed to show virginity, is one allowed to perform hymenoplasty to safe one's marriage

الجواب حامداومصليا

I would not favor a surgical procedure such as hymeoplasty in order to restore the hymen. I believe it is cruel and degrading to woman's honor that she has to have a cergical procedure performed and bleed in order to prove her virginity.

Islam does not believe in any such practices nor does it require of a woman that she must bleed during her post-nuptical intercourse to prove her virginity.

These are all baseless cultural practices that the society must stand to oppose it. If a woman has lost her hymen due to some reason (which is a common occurence) then she does not have to go through such cergical procedure in order to prove her virginity.

Therefore, I advise you to not allow yourself to have such procedure performed on your body.

And Allah knows best.
