Q: It is not permissible to shave underarms during periods, what is the ruling for shaving moustache or other facial hairs ?
A: In the state of haidh (menses) it is makrooh for women to remove their unwanted hair. Hence they should refrain from removing their hair in their menses. However if the facial hair looks conspicuous, then it will be permissible to remove it.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
