Answered by Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah
Assalamualaikum mufti saab. I have a question regarding the removal of hair whilst sitting in Itikaaf. the hair removal from the arms and legs is a preparation for Eid as it will not be possible to remove the hair after the duration of the itikaaf.
Yes, it will be permissible for a sister to remove the hair from her arms and legs whilst being in the state of Itikaaf in her designated place. She would not be allowed to leave her designated place and go to the bathroom to remove the hair.
Only Allah Knows Best
