Hello brothers and sisters,
I have recently read on a French Islamic forum, that Muslim ladies are not allowed to pluck their eyebrows. Is that true? :?

Women cannot "shape" their eyebrows as it is haraam, only pluck them to differ from men -i.e. between the two eybrows(some men have one thick brow instead of 2)

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: “If removing hair from the eyebrows is done by plucking, this is namas (plucking the eyebrows) and the Prophet (saws) cursed the naamisah (the woman who plucks eyebrows) and the mutanammisah (the woman who has her eyebrows plucked). This is a major sin, and women are singled out in this ruling because they are the ones who usually do this, for the purpose of beautification, but if a man were to do it he would also be cursed, just as a woman is cursed for doing this, Allaah forbid.

If hair is removed from the eyebrows by a method other than plucking, such as by cutting or shaving, some of the scholars regard this as being the same as plucking, because it is changing the creation of Allaah, so there is no difference between plucking, cutting or shaving. This is undoubtedly more on the safe side, so a person must avoid that, whether man or woman.”

What if it is only between the eyebrows?

Fixing the eyebrows regardless of how it is done is haraam and not allowed. What is permissible is where it is extreme cases where it is bushy too much as to obstruct view or what not, it can be fixed to the point of where it looks normal. What is above the nose is not part of the eyebrows and can be removed. Please visit the above links for further information rather then continue to ask questions whose answer already have been explained above. Seeking knowledge is obligatory in Islam, don't look for quick answers and go visit the links.
