Q: I have a few questions to ask which I am in doubt about.

1. Are women allowed to remove hair from any part of the body example arms, legs or face during her hayz or nifaas.

2. Is a woman on haidh or nifaas allowed to read any wazifa that is from the quran? Example any quranic ayat as a wazifa during her monthly cycle or not.

3. If a women has sideburns is she allowed to thread them or shave them if the are really long?



1. It is makrooh.

2. If it is a wazeefah recited with the niyyat of du`aa then it is permissible.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
