Ruling on removing body hair

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum 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:
What is the ruling on a woman removing hair from her body? If it is permitted, then who is allowed to do that for her?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

It is permissible for her to do that apart from the hair of the eyebrows and head; she is not permitted to remove that hair or any part of it. She may do that herself or her husband or one of her mahrams may do it with regard to the parts of the body that they are allowed to see; or another woman may do it with regard to the parts of the body that she is allowed to see.

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