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

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh

It is permissible for one to remove the hair on the shoulders and biceps. However, it is undesirable for men to remove hair on the chest, back and legs. However if a need exists, it would be permissible to remove such hair.
