Plucking eyebrows

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I know that plucking eyebrows is haram in Islam; our Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) has cursed the women to pluck eyebrows. Alhamdulillah, I have never done my eyebrows despite going college/university because I don’t want Allah Ta’ala to be angry with me. However I was thinking when we get married, on the wedding day, is it ok to pluck the eyebrows only for that one day? Would that still be sinful? We’re not going to do a big wedding, just a little one – according to Sunnah so nobody comes, would that be ok? I know Allah is still watching but is it permissible only for that one day?


A: It is not permissible.

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