Q: Is belly piercing haraam (prohibited)?

A:
Belly-piercing is sinful in Islam because it is practice of belly dancers and prostitutes. The Holy Quran and Noble Hadith of Our Rasool (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) prohibit the imitation of cultures and styles of lewd and evil people. Hence piercing of the stomach is not permissible.
