1) Is it allowed for men/women to cut/trim their eyebrows?
2) Whether or not maternal aunt (wife of mother’s brother) of my wife my mehram?

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

1.      It is prohibited for both men and women to cut/trim their eyebrows. At most, one may only remove the stray strands of the eyebrows.

عن علقمة قال  : لعن عبد الله الواشمات والمتنمصات والمتفلجات للحسن المغيرات خلق الله فقالت أم يعقوب ما هذا ؟ قال عبد الله وما لي لا ألعن من لعن رسول الله وفي كتاب الله ؟ قالت والله لقد قرأت ما بين اللوحين فما وجدته قال والله لئن قرأتيه لقد وجدتيه { وما آتاكم الرسول فخذوه وما نهاكم عنه فانتهوا } (صحيح البخاري، 7/ 83، دار الفكر)

 

ولا بأس بأخذ الحاجبين وشعر وجهه ما لم يشبه المخنث

(Radd Al-Muhtar, vol 6, pg 373/ vol 2, pg 418, HM Sa’eed / Al Fatawa al-Hindiyya, vol 5, pg 358, Rasheediyya)

 

2.      The maternal aunt of a wife (wife’s mother’s brother’s wife) is not Mahram to you.

 

 

وقوله: { وَأُحِلَّ لَكُم مَّا وَرَاءَ ذَلِكُمْ } أي: ما عدا من ذكرن من المحارم هن لكم حلال

(تفسير ابن كثير، 1/ 419، المفيد)

 

And Allah knows best

Wassalaamu `alaykum
