Facial hair

Q: What is the definition of Al-Nams? Is it permissible for women to remove the hair of their cheek, mustache, legs and hands? What is the ruling if the hair is thick and causes the dissatisfaction of her husband?


A: All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. Al-Nams means to pluck some of the hair of the eyebrows which is impermissible. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) cursed those who pluck their eyebrows and those who have their eyebrows plucked. A woman is allowed to remove any hair she might have on her cheek, mustache, legs and hands.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
