What is the Islamic ruling on wearing high heels?


The least regarding this affair is that it is kiraahah (i.e. it is disliked in relation to the Islamic rulings) and this is because; firstly there is deceit in it, as the woman appears taller than she really is. Secondly there is a danger that she may fall, and finally her health may be jeopardized as proven by the doctors. [Source: Shaykh Ibn Baaz ; Majmoo’ fataawaa (6/397)]
