Answered by: Shaykh Umer Khan



Assalamu alaikum,

There is a man who has two very long hairs coming out of his eyebrows. Is it okay for him to level those two hairs? They are long and one goes over his eyes.

Yes, it would be permissible for the man to level the two very long hairs to make them more normal.[1] However, he should not go beyond that to remove an entire line of hair from the eyebrow or change the shape of the eyebrow.
