Hair Removal

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Question: Is it permissible to remove strays of hair around the eyebrows and/or to “clean” them up?

Answer: In the name of Allah, Most Merciful.

I pray that this finds you well, and in the best of health and spirits. May Allah grant you all good and success in this life and the next.

It is permitted to trim one’s eyebrows slightly if they are unusually thick, or to trim the stray hair.
What is interdicted in the Prophetic hadiths is “shaping” the eyebrows.

And Allah alone gives success.
