The Ruling on Teeth Whitening- Shaikh Abu ‘Amr al-Hajoori

Question: What is the ruling on teeth whitening?

Answer: “There is no prohibition in [using] what does not have an opposition in it in terms of tooth reshaping or distorting the teeth. For the legislation of [using] the siwaak is for cleaning the teeth”*.

* I asked the Shaikh this question on 19 Jumada al-Awwal 1437 corresponding to Feb 29, 2016
