Is the ruling on women removing body hair

Q: What is the ruling on removing facial hair? I particularly mean the mustache region, if there is long or somewhat short hair. Is it permissible to remove such hair or does it fall under the ruling of Nams (removing hair from the face/eyebrows)? What is the ruling on removing the hair of one’s legs and arms?


A: All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. It is permissible for women to remove the hair of the mustache, the thighs, legs and arms. (Part No. 5; Page No. 195) This is not similar to plucking the hair of the eyebrows that are forbidden to remove.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
