Shaving the private parts

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Tafseer Raheemi


Is it a must to shave the anus and area around it?

What if it is difficult? Sometimes it bleeds a lot so should you still do it?


Yes, it is obligatory to clean all the hair below the naval. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam has said in a hadith that, there are ten things that occur naturally, and cleaning the pubic hairs is one of them (See mishkat page 44).

Although it may be a little difficult to clean the sensitive parts, one is compelled to do so due to the hadith mentioned above and similar ahadith, because to so is wajib. If using a blade causes bleeding then firstly, you will be strongly advised to take extreme care and complacency, and if this is still to no avail then one should use hair removal cream, preferably with medical advice from a doctor, so that it does not cause any harm.
