Fatwas on Taking Father’s Money / Hair Transplant
Taking father’s money
Q- If my father gives me money to buy things, and then some of that money remains, can I keep the remaining sum without telling him?
A – The extra that remains from what your father entrusted you with to purchase something he needed is not for you to take. Rather it is obligatory for you to return this to your father because that is part of fulfilling the trust that is ordered in the saying of Allah Almighty: “Verily! Allah commands that you should render back the trust to those, to whom they are due. (Qur’an, 4:58)

Q- In America, when a person is afflicted with baldness, the doctor takes hair from the back of his head, and plants it in the affected area. Is this practice permitted?
A – Yes. Since this operation is about restoring Allah’s creation as it was and to remove a defect – and not to beautify or add to what Allah created –, then it does not fall under the category of changing the creation of Allah.
It is a form of rectifying a deficiency and removing a defect. The Prophet (peace be upon him) related a story about three men, one of whom was bald.
One of them wanted Allah to return his hair to him, the angel rubbed him, and Allah gave him nice hair.
