In regards to Fatwaa no. 016/04 does it mean that plucking of the eyebrows is allowed if they do not become a thin fine line as indicated by Abu Dawood who mentioned that the Naamisah is the one who plucks eyebrows so that they become thin and fine?
Thank you for your clarification.
Yes it is permissible for a woman to trim and pluck her eyebrows for neatening purposes only. It must not be thinned out into a fine line as is the practice of the Kuffaar and modern women.
