Q: I have a skin condition (similar to eczema) and I am finding it difficult and painful to remove pubic, scrotal, back passage and surrounding hair by shaving. However, I have found through personal experience that either plucking or trimming these hairs are more suitable for me. According to the Sharia, which is more preferred for removing these hairs if shaving is harmful for a person: trimming or plucking?
A: Trimming is better.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
