Aesthetic Surgeries

Question

I would like to know if Islam allows us to change our physical features in case we don't like them and want to look nicer to ourselves and others. I want to get a nose job done but am afraid that Allah might do not like it for He is the one who created and fashioned us.


Answer

I do not think there is any expression in the Qur'an that can be translated to mean that God does not allow nourishing a desire for Zeenah and thus forbids us from treating any flaws in our physical stature. God has mentioned the beauty of stature in man in positive terms and has alluded to the fact that this is indeed a blessing from Him.

Consider the following verses from the Qur'an says:

He has created the heavens and the earth in just proportions, and has given you shape, and made your shapes beautiful: and to Him is the final Goal.(64:3)

It is Allah Who has made for you the earth as a resting place, and the sky as a canopy, and has given you shape- and made your shapes beautiful,- and has provided for you Sustenance, of things pure and good;- such is Allah your Lord. So Glory to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds!
