Laser hair removal

Q: Is it allowed in Islam to use a laser machine at home to remove your pubic hair? I ask this question because elders have told me it is not allowed in Islam because at the time of your janaazah your body becomes very very heavy and your soul does not leave your body if you use an object to remove your pubic hair. This is why I wanted to confirm whether it is or not allowed in Islam. I was intending to buy the lumea precision plus.


A: A laser machine is an unnatural way. Though it is permissible but we do not encourage this.

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