Are men allowed to remove the hairs above the nose in the monobrow?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Are men allowed to remove the hairs above the nose in the monobrow? I know this question has been asked before. But I wanted to be really clear on this. My parents have been saying that no, men cannot do this. So I was wondering whether you could also write down what I can tell my parents. Could you give the evidence and your thought process on why it is allowed, so I can explain it properly to my parents that it is allowed. Jazakallah

Answer

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

وَلَا بَأْسَ بِأَخْذِ الْحَاجِبِينَ وَشَعْرَ وَجْهِهِ ما لم يَتَشَبَّهْ بِالْمُخَنَّثِ كَذَا في الْيَنَابِيعِ

( قَوْلُهُ وَالنَّامِصَةُ إلَخْ ) ذَكَرَهُ فِي الِاخْتِيَارِ أَيْضًا وَفِي الْمُغْرِبِ .

النَّمْصُ : نَتْفُ الشَّعْرِ وَمِنْهُ الْمِنْمَاصُ الْمِنْقَاشُ ا هـ وَلَعَلَّهُ مَحْمُولٌ عَلَى مَا إذَا فَعَلَتْهُ لِتَتَزَيَّنَ لِلْأَجَانِبِ ، وَإِلَّا فَلَوْ كَانَ فِي وَجْهِهَا شَعْرٌ يَنْفِرُ زَوْجُهَا عَنْهَا بِسَبَبِهِ ، فَفِي تَحْرِيمِ إزَالَتِهِ بُعْدٌ ، لِأَنَّ الزِّينَةَ لِلنِّسَاءِ مَطْلُوبَةٌ لِلتَّحْسِينِ ، إلَّا أَنْ يُحْمَلَ عَلَى مَا لَا ضَرُورَةَ إلَيْهِ لِمَا فِي نَتْفِهِ بِالْمِنْمَاصِ مِنْ الْإِيذَاءِ .

وَفِي تَبْيِينِ الْمَحَارِمِ إزَالَةُ الشَّعْرِ مِنْ الْوَجْهِ حَرَامٌ إلَّا إذَا نَبَتَ لِلْمَرْأَةِ لِحْيَةٌ أَوْ شَوَارِبُ فَلَا تَحْرُمُ إزَالَتُهُ بَلْ تُسْتَحَبُّ ا هـ ، وَفِي التَّتَارْخَانِيَّة عَنْ الْمُضْمَرَاتِ : وَلَا بَأْسَ بِأَخْذِ الْحَاجِبَيْنِ وَشَعْرِ وَجْهِهِ مَا لَمْ يُشْبِهْ الْمُخَنَّثَ ا هـ وَمِثْلُهُ فِي الْمُجْتَبَى تَأَمَّلْ
