Trimming bodily hair

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by SunniPath Answer Service Team

I’am a 16 year old boy and I wanted to ask; how should one remove his pubic hair, arm pit hair, and should we also remove hair between the buttocks? Please tell me how to remove it? I use a mustache trimmer to trim my facial hair, so can I use this trimmer to trim my pubic hair, arm pit hair and buttock hair? But how shall I remove the hair between the buttock as it is hard to reach? If I use the trimmer to trim the pubic hair completely, will it hurt? Will it grow hard and cause me to itch? Will it itch any where if I use the trimmer for arm pit or buttock? Please do help me. .

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah
