Question: My wife complains of her hair falling out a lot and it was said to her to cut it short as this will reduce the falling out [of the hair]. Is this permissible?

Response: If the situation is as mentioned, then it is permissible [to cut the hair short] since this will prevent further harm.

And with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and his family and his companions.
