Woman waxing her arms and legs




Is it permissible for a woman to wax her arms and legs?

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

It will not be permissible for a woman to wax her arms and legs if her intention is to follow the fashion or to appear attractive to unrelated men. If however she does it with the intention of beautifying herself for her husband, it will be permissible.

(See: Raddul Muhtaar: 6/373; Aap ke Masail: 7/111,116; Bahishti Zewar: 2/77)

And Allah knows best.
