CategoriesWomen's Issues [187]

Fatwa ID: 05096


Answered by: Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah




Is it permissible for a woman to remove facial hair? For example upper lip and chin (not eyebrows as I know this is forbidden). And is it permissible to remove arm and leg hair?



In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.




It will be permissible for women to remove facial hair in particular from above their lips and from their chins and also from their arms and legs. (Raddul Muhtar p.373 v.6 & Khawateen Ke Le Jadeed Masaail p.88)
