Removing facial hair in the state of haidh

Q: Is it permissible for a woman in her menses to remove her facial hair?


A: In the state of haidh (menses) it is makrooh for a woman to remove her unwanted hair. Hence she should refrain from removing her facial hair in her menses. However if the facial hair looks conspicuous, then it will be permissible to remove it.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
