can muslim women shape their eyebrows and do manicure and pedicure?
Asalamu alaikum wa ramatu Allah wa barakatu Ladies,
We all love to look beautiful, but I am so tired of seeing "Muslim" women with plucked/waxed eyebrows who follow the Sunnah.
I asked myself, "these women should know it is haram, right?!" "How can they not know their religion?! This is a big deal!"
So with that said:
Bismillah ArRahman, IrRahim,
It is not permissable, it is haram, to pluck, wax, touch the eyebrows.
Bukhari (4886) and Muslim (2125) narrated that ‘Abd-Allah ibn Mas’ood (may Allah be pleased with him) said: May Allah curse the one who does tattoos and the one who has a tattoo done, the one who plucks eyebrows and the one who has her eyebrows plucked, and those who file teeth for the purpose of beautification, changing the creation of Allah.
Sheikh Ibn Jibreen said: “It is not permissible to cut the hair of the eyebrows, or to shave it, reduce it or pluck it, even with the husband’s approval. This is not the matter of beauty, rather it is altering the creation of Allah Who is the Best of creators. A warning has been narrated against doing that and the one who does it is cursed; this implies that it is forbidden.
So, with that said....what do you ladies do to your eyebrows?
I myself just lighten the hair above my arch with a little hair bleach and also a little below the arch.
