Dear Brother / Sister,
According to the Islamic laws, it is considered permissible for women to have their ears pierced in order to wear earrings but not permitted for man. Some Islamic jurists argued that it is permissible for young boys to have their ears pierced and although it was practiced during the time of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), it was not prohibited. Howsoever as for most of Islamic jurists, it is haram and for some, it is makrooh that is to say not permissible of an adolescent man’s having his ears pierced.
