Shave unwanted hair from backside

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:

Assalamu Alaikum,

I hope u r well by the grace of Allah (SWT). Excellent stuff you are doing

for Muslim Ummah ... two thumbs up! :)

The question actually I wanted to ask is abt shaving of private parts.

Which parts exactly need to be shaven? I mean I read in a hadith abt shaving unwanted hair below navel, but does that also mean shaving the back portion? (the hair on butt?)

Jazakumullahu Khair.

Wassalamu Alaikum!

Shave unwanted hair from backside

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.


It is not only permissible, but highly recommended that one pluck, cut, or shave his unwanted hair from the armpits and the pubic area. Removal of unwanted hair is a natural or fitrah Sunnah; and it is recorded that the Messenger (saws) and his noble companions removed their unwanted hair regularly.


There is no harm if one has excessive growth and wishes to shave his back portion.


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,
