Remove hair from middle of eye brow
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.
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?
Your Question: i wanted to know that can we remove hair from the middle of the eyebrows where some people have alot of hair so is that also part of eybrows or we can remove those hair?
The Messenger of Allah (saws) specifically prohibited the believing women to remove their hair from their eye-brows. In the opinion of most scholars the hair that grows in the middle of the two eye brows does not constitute as eye-brow hair; thus if one has excess hair that grows in the middle of the two eye-brows there is absolutely no harm if one wishes to removes them.
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 and well wisher in Islam,
