Removing pubic hair

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it necessary for a woman to shave the underarms and pubic hair regularly and are women allowed to use scissors or shaving blades for this purpose?


A: Yes.

It is better for them to use scissors or other hair removers, like creams etc. rather than shaving.

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