Question: Is it permissible to donate hair? If someone has long hair and they want to donate some, is that allowed? بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
It is not permissible to derive benefit from human hair; hence, it would be prohibited to donate.
