Answered by: Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah




Is it permissible to remove hair by using metal on the body and is there any authentic hadeeth supporting this fact?



In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful




It is preferable for a woman to use cream, wax, powder, etc. to remove unwanted hairs from her body. It is also acceptable for women to use razors to remove hair from below the navel, but it is better for them to remove it by plucking it out.
