Answer:

 

Hair removal and nose stud

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.


 

Your Question: a lot of people have told me dat removing hair from your body is haraam,is this true?

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 7.777 Narrated by Abu Huraira

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "Five practices are characteristics of the Fitrah (in accordance with nature): clipping the nails, removing hair from the pubic region, removing the hair from under the armpits, and cutting the moustaches short and circumcision (for men)."

 

It is encouraged in Islam and an act of Sunan-al-Fitrah (in accordance with nature) for a believing woman to clip her nails and remove unwanted hair from under her armpits and her pubic region.

 

There is absolutely no harm or restriction in Islam if a believing woman wishes to remove unwanted hair from any other part of her body; the only part where it is absolutely prohibited for a believing woman, who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day, to remove or change or alter her hair is from her eye-brows.

 

Sahih Al-Bukhari 7.815 Narrated by Abdullah

I heard the Messenger of Allah say: 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?

 

Other than from her eye-brows, it is absolutely permissible in Islam for a believing woman to remove any unwanted hair from any part of her body she wishes.

 

Your Question: i remove hair through waxing not shaving is because then i feel clean,is this wrong?

There is absolutely no harm or restriction in Islam if one wishes to shave, cut, clip, pull, wax, use hair removal cream, or any other method of hair removal available at their disposal.

 

Your Question: two females told me that wearing a nose stud is haraam,i have looked this up in many islamic books but i couldnt find the answer to whether this is haraam.

There is absolutely nothing in the Quran or the Sunnah which restricts or prohibits a believing woman from wearing a nose-ring or nose-stud, if she wishes to do so.

 

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

 

Your Brother in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
