One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Please clarify the following :-

1) Can a woman shave her hair which grows on her Hand/Legs or near private parts

2) Can a woman do waxing on her hands/legs

3) Can a woman shave her hair Underarms

Answer:

 

Removing unwanted hair

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

There is absolutely no harm if the women shaves, waxes, plucks, or removes her unwanted hair from any part of her body; except from her eye-brows. Other than removing or shaping the hair from her eyebrows, a believing woman is allowed to remove any hair/s from any part of her body.

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari 7.815 Narrated by Abdullah

Allah has cursed those women who practice tattooing and those who get themselves tattooed, and those who remove their eye-brow hairs, and those who create a space between their teeth artificially to look beautiful, and such women as change the features created by Allah. Why then should I not curse those whom the Prophet (saws) has cursed?

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your Brother in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
