Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
Is it permissible for a man to use a depilatory cream to remove armpit hair and pubic hair?
(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.)
Praise be to Allaah.
Yes, this is permitted for removing armpit hair and pubic hair, because the point is to remove the hair. Any means of achieving the desired result is permitted, although the best way, which will receive the most reward, is to shave the pubic hair and pluck the armpit hair, as is reported in the Sunnah.
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.
