is the ruling on women removing body hair
and, if it is permissible, who is allowed to do this for them?
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 all their body hair, except their eyebrows and the hair on their heads. It is not permissible for them to remove these in total, or anything from the eyebrows, whether by shaving or other means. Women can remove hair other than this by themselves, or their husbands or one of their Mahrams (spouse or permanently unmarriageable relative) may do it for them - from the parts of the body that they are permitted to see. Another woman may also do it, from the parts of the body that she is permitted to see also.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
