As Salaamu Alaikum,
Q: In Islam I know that plucking or shaving or shaping the eyebrows is Haram. But what is the ruling on removing the hair over the nose (unibrow) for a female as it is very thick and unsightly and makes one look unfeminine and makes one have low self-esteem?  Jazakallah I await your feedback.

Wa Alaikum Assalaam,

A: If it is so thick that it is not normally the way the females have it, and it makes you look unfeminine, then it is allowed to remove it to the extent needed.

And Allah Knows Best.
