Quora Answer: Is It Haram to Wear Fake Nails?

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ 

The following is my answer to a Quora question: “Is it haram to wear fake nails? 

There is nothing in the Qur’an or the prophetic narrations that specifically make it haram.  There is no substantive evidence that makes it haram.  It is a principal of fiqh al-mu’amalah, that everything is halal unless we can prove it is haram.  Since we cannot prove it is haram, the default position is that it is halal.
