    Default Eyebrows?


    Salam,
    I know we aren't allowed to pluck our brows, but can we wax or shave or bleach or laser remove or nair? Please provide specific evidence about the eyebrows. Thanks!

    I don't want to completely remove them lol! Rather, I would like to shape them so I don't look like a man with bushy eyebrows.

    salam sis

    the point is that you cant remove the hairs. so waxing, shaving and laser removal arent allowed. BUT im not sure about bleaching i think its is allowed but its a bit weird in my opinion

    Question:
    I understand that plucking the eybrows is prohibited in Islam. I have the following questions. 1) Can the eybrow hairs be trimmed? 2) Can the eybrow hairs be lightened in color (for example from brown to blond)?
    Please provided daleel.
    Assalamu Alaikum

    Answer:

    Praise be to Allaah.

    Namas is the word used to describe plucking the eyebrows. According to a saheeh hadeeth, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The woman who plucks facial hair and the woman who has this done are cursed.” (Reported by al-Bukhaari and Muslim).
    Namas means plucking the hair, or it was said that it means plucking the facial hair. “The woman who plucks facial hair” is the woman who removes hair from her own face or the face of another woman. “The woman who has this done” refers to a woman who plucks hair from her own face or tells another woman to do this for her. Minmaas refers to tweezers, the tool used to remove a thorn. When a woman removes hair from her face, this can also be done by using a thread. This also includes thinning the eyebrows.
    The fuqaha’ agreed that plucking the eyebrow hair is included in the removal of facial hair, which is forbidden because of the hadeeth: “Allaah has cursed the women who pluck their facial hair and the women who have this done.”
    The majority of fuqaha’ said that removing facial hair other than the eyebrows is also included in Namas, and the fuqaha’ agreed that the prohibition on Namas in the hadeeth should be understood to mean that it is haraam.
    Removing facial hair is also forbidden for men. (Al-Mawsoo’ah al-Fiqhiyyah, part 14, Tanammus).
    Al-Haytami said: as for removing some of the eyebrow hairs if they have grown long, I do not see anything wrong with this according to our companions, but it should be makrooh because it is changing the creation of Allaah, may He be glorified and exalted. Nothing concerning this was narrated so it should be makrooh. (Al-Fataawa al-Kubra by Ibn Hajar al-Haytami, part 4, Baab al-‘Aqeeqah).
    If the eyebrows have grown so long that they are troublesome or causing harm such as preventing one from seeing properly, then the part that is causing the problem may be trimmed.
    With regard to dyeing the eyebrows or a part of them with a blonde colour or a colour similar to that of the skin, there is nothing wrong with this, as was stated in a fatwa issued by our Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him and raise his status). He also stated in a fatwa that it is permissible to remove hair growing between the eyebrows because this is not part of them, but he stated that it is not permissible to trim the eyebrows if they are not troublesome or causing harm.

    And Allaah knows best

    Also:

    Question:
    Some women go to beauticians who style their eyebrows by shaving or trimming their edges. What is the ruling on this?

    Answer:

    Praise be to Allaah.

    Shaping the eyebrows by trimming, shaving or plucking their edges in order to appear beautiful, as is done by some women nowadays, is haraam because it involves changing the creation of Allaah and following the Shaytaan in his tempting of mankind to change the creation of Allaah. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “Verily! Allaah forgives not (the sin of) setting up partners in worship with Him, but He forgives whom He pleases sins other than that, and whoever sets up partners in worship with Allaah, has indeed strayed far away.

    They (all those who worship others than Allaah) invoke nothing but female deities besides Him, and they invoke nothing but Shaytaan, a persistent rebel!

    Allaah cursed him. And he [Shaytaan] said: ‘I will take an appointed portion of Your slaves;

    Verily, I will mislead them, and surely, I will arouse in them false desires; and certainly, I will order them to slit the ears of cattle, and indeed I will order them to change the nature created by Allaah.’ And whoever takes Shaytaan as a wali (protector or helper) instead of Allaah, has surely suffered a manifest loss.”

    [Al-Nisa’ 4:116-119]

    In al-Saheeh, it was reported that Ibn Mas’ood (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “Allaah has cursed the women who do tattoos and those who have this done, the women who pluck eyebrows and those who have this done, and the women who file their teeth and change the creation of Allaah.” Then he said: “Should I not curse those whom the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) cursed, when it says in the Qur’aan (interpretation of the meaning): ‘… And whatsoever the Messenger gives you, take it, and whatever he forbids you, abstain (from it)…’ [al-Hashr 59:7]”

    I get really confused when it says you can't do something because you are changing Allah's swt creation...but then wouldn't dying hair and ear piercing and gaining/losing weight also fall under that category?

    lol i know its confusing but the thing is, dying the hair and peircing the ears are allowed becuase there is proof from the sunnah that it is allowed... and plucking the eyebrows inst allowed becuase there is proof from the sunnah that it is haram.

    ^ But it doesn't say anything about other methods. Just like when it says to "trim the mustache" and so forth.

    Plucking and dyeing the eyebrows

    I've read somewhere that if your eyebrows are like over over bushy [for eg. like John Howard's (as exaggerated in the cartoons)] then it's ok...only if they're so bushy in the whole area.


    (human images removed)


    Anyhow, I don't do anything to my eyebrows, but a shape is still formed where a majority of the hairs are [that is, the triangle archy shape] and there's just less hair underneath, which is still visible, but not worth plucking/waxing/bleaching/stringing

    Bleaching may not remove hairs but it would still make them appear a different shape as the bleached hairs will not remain so visable anymore.
    Some scholars are of the opinion that plucking is allowed for neatening the eyebrows but one mustn't pluck to the extent that it alters their appearance altogether e.g.thick heavy eyebrows end up like a pencil thin line.
