    Beautifying oneself: plucking one's eyebrows

    InshaAllah we can benefit from this short article about the rulling of plucking one's eyebrows.

    A Muslim man or woman should like only what is Halal in his/her spouse. When someone starts to enjoy what is Haram and starts to think it is beautiful, he/she should question his/her belief and its strength. It goes without saying that many of todays fashions (punk haircuts, etc.) are against the teachings of Islam, and are from the influences of Shaitan. May Allah protect us from these influences.
    Men are told to adorn themselves for their wives as women are for their husbands.



    Any beautification that alters the physical appearance Allah created us with is prohibited in Islam, unless it is for medical reasons. This prohibition includes plastic surgeries performed by people to change their noses, breasts, or other parts of their bodies. Allah (s.w.t.) said about what Shaitan said about his followers: And surely I (Shaitan) will lead them astray, and surely I will arouse desires in them, and surely I will command them and they will cut the cattle's ears, and surely I will command them and they will change Allah's creation. Whoso chooses Shaitan for a patron instead of Allah is verily a loser, and his loss is manifest. [Al-Qur'an: An-Nisa'(4:119)].



    The Prophet (s.a.w.) also prohibited tattooing, cutting the teeth and widening the gap between them for the purpose of beautification, plucking the eyebrows, and wearing wigs and hairpieces for both men and women, (or the addition of any other natural or artificial hair.)
    The Prophet (s.a.w.) said: Allah has cursed the Washimat and the Mustawshimat, the Namisat and the Mutanammisat, and the Mutafallijat for beauty, who change what Allah has created. (Al-Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawood, and At-Tirmizi).



    The Prophet (s.a.w.) said: Allah has cursed the Washimat and the Mustawshimat, the Namisat and the Mutanammisat, and the Mutafallijat for beauty, who change what Allah has created. (Al-Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawood, and At-Tirmizi).



    The Washimat are the tattooers, and the Mustawshimat are the people who are tattooed. The Namisat pluck the eyebrows to straighten them or to make them thinner, and the Mutanammisat are the people whose eyebrows are plucked. Some Muslim scholars apply this prohibition of plucking the hair to all the facial hair of the woman. The Mutafallijat for beauty are the peoples who widen the gaps between their teeth for the sake of beautification.

    Hmmm.. I was under the impression that a wife could pluck her eyebrows once she's married? Just like you're allowed to wear make up and all for your husband, or am I wrong about that too?

    The hadith is clear, nothing is mentioned if she can pluck them once married. Please read the article carefully inshAllah. It is a sad situation sometimes, i see girl as young as 12 years old has her eyebrows plucked, the glamorous entertainment world has influenced so many girls so effectively, their heroines are britney spears, aguilera, the bollywood etc. the hadith says "curse" which sounds stronger than haram. The word "curse" makes my hair stand.

    In the Name of Allah, Most Merciful & Compassionate From a previous question answered by Shaykh Abdurrahman ibn Yusuf:

    Taking the hadith and the various statements of the Hanafi jurists into consideration the following could be concluded:

    1. It would be permitted for a woman to remove a beard or a moustache that appears on her face. Even though it is facial hair, but since it is to stop women from resembling men, it is permitted. This is the opinion of the majority of scholars, in fact they have said it is recommended, not just permitted. The same will be to bleach this hair instead.

    2. If the eyebrows are linked in between, it would be permissible to remove the excess hair from in between to separate them [i.e. the hair above the nose]. The reason for this is that linked eyebrows are looked upon as a defect, hence it would be permissible to remove it.

    3. A 'few' stray hairs around the eyebrows would be permissible to remove by clipping them off, if it looks defective, or for married women creates abhorrence in their husband. This does not mean it is permitted to remove a whole line or two of fine hair from around the eyebrows [as is the case nowadays].

    4. Dense bushy eyebrows may be trimmed down to a more normal size. However, one must exercise great caution in this regard, since one does not want it to fall under the warning of the hadith. If one is not sure how to determine the normal size they should not act on the benefit of the doubt, but rather follow the more cautionary approach and trim less. What so called 'regular' [especially non-Muslim] people consider nowadays as the norm i.e. eyebrows that are shaped in particular unnatural or reduced to thin lines can not be considered as acceptable in Islamic law due to the severity of the hadith.

    5. Great caution has to be exercised in this regard, since the hadith is very strict and there are some Hanafi scholars who have taken more strict position. For instance, Mullah Ali al-Qari (Allah be pleased with him) comments [relating from Imam Nawawi] that plucking of the facial hair is haram (unlawful) for a woman with the exception of moustache or beard hairs (Mirqat al-Mafatih 8:218). The concessions mentioned above are for the removal of a defective appearance and not for purely beautification purpose, hence, caution in this matters is the way.

    Wassalam,
