Is it permissible for women to have multiple ear piercings



I would like to know if it is permissible to have multiple ear piercings for women.



In the name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-raḥmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It will be permissible for females to have multiple ear piercing as long as it does not entail any Tashabuh or resemblance with any Kuffaar customs or practises and one does not go through and bodily harm whilst having them done.[1]

And Allah Ta‘ala knows best

قوله ( والطفل ) ظاهره أن المراد به الذكر مع أن ثقب الأذن لتعليق القرط وهو من زينة النساء فلا يحل للذكور والذي في عامة ا لكتب وقدمناه عن التاترخانية لا بأس بثقب أذن الطفل من البنات.
