Plucking Eyebrows

By Mufti Bilaal Cassim

CHECKED AND APPROVED: Mufti Ebrahim Desai


Q.) Is it permissible for a woman to pluck her eyebrows?

A.) Mullah Ali Qari (R.A) has commentated that plucking of the facial hair is haram (prohibited) for a woman with the exception of moustache or beard hairs, if any woman is unfortunate enough to be troubled by these. (Mirqaat Vol.8 Pg.295; Ashrafiyyah).

However, if the eyebrows have become so dense that it is unseemly for a woman and incites abhorrence in her husband, it is permissible to trim it to a more appropriate and normal size. (Ahsanul Fataawa Vol.8 pg.76; Zakariyya Book Depot) And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
