I know that a person in state of Janaabah cannot remove hairs from the body until they are washed with water.

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

I know that a person in state of Janaabah cannot remove hairs from the body until they are washed with water. However when a person shaves during the same state, the hair removed is wet before it is shaved off. Is this permissible?


Pl. clarify. Thank you

Remove hair in janaba

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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Beloved brother in Islam, to the best of our knowledge there is absolutely nothing in the Glorious Quran or the authentic and established Sunnah whereby it is discouraged, leave alone forbidden, for the believers to cut or remove or shave their unwanted hair, or clip their nails, etc. when in the state of major ceremonial impurity.


Except for one who is in the state of ehraam for pilgrimage, it is absolutely permissible in Islam for a believer, man or woman, to shave, cut, or remove their hair or their nails whenever and wherever they will or please, regardless of whether or not they are in the state of purity or impurity.

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,
