Piercing the Body

Q: Can females pierce their bodies?

A: Females are allowed to pierce only ears and nose,  not any other part of the body. Earrings and nose rings have been worn by Muslim women since the time of Rasoolullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

The belly ring and rings on other parts of the female body are haraam because these are practices of non Muslims

And Allah Ta'la knows best
