Islam’s love keeping long hair, and rumor is that cutting hair is a sin in this religion. This is why most people ask, “In Islam what are the requirements for hair removal?” You should know that it is not that they are prohibited from removing any hair in their body but rather the hair that identifies them as females. Apart from the general body hair we get when still babies, like the eyebrows, eyelashes, and the hair growing on our heads, there is also the hair growing on the skin as a whole. Also the moment a person becomes an adolescent, he or she is bound to grow pubic hair and armpit hair.
Islamic people strongly regard hair removal issues as a religious context. This is why there are rules as to how this issue can be addressed. It is forbidden for the women to shave their hair. Trimming is not bad. You are allowed to have it the length you prefer as long as both you and your husband are okay with it. It is required of the woman to discuss this issue with the husband and agree on a look which will not leave her looking like a kaafir or an immoral woman. She should give good reasons like it is difficult to comb and maintain long hair.
The woman’s hair is considered her God-given beauty and they are not allowed to play around by shaving in weird styles. They are also not allowed to choose hair cuts which are named after immoral women or animals.
We have heard cases where a woman grows moustache. In this case it is allowed to shave as this hair is growing in the wrong place. It looks bad to keep hair which is growing in wrong places. You can use a device like the Silk’n Sensepil to achieve this. It is okay to remove body hair on the arms calves and thighs too. The eyebrows and the hair on the head should however be left untouched. There are other places though where an individual cannot reach. In this case, the other party is only allowed to help remove the hair basing on the part of the body he or she is allowed to see. The pubic hair cannot be seen by any other person apart from her husband. So he is the only one allowed to help her shave that part. Removing, trimming or even plucking the eyebrows is totally not allowed. There is a prophet who cursed any person doing the act, both the individual and the one helping in the act, as he said it is changing Allah’s creation.
Both sexes are required to shave their pubic hair and armpit hair as well. But come to think of it, it may be religious but it’s also meant to promote good hygiene to their body. In Islam what are the requirements for hair removal? These are mostly based in their rules so if you are thinking of becoming one, befriend a Muslim and learn more about their culture, so you will know what is required.
