i do consider us brother and sister in humanity. not sure you can call me brother? i'm kuffar. so no i'm not "struggling" with islam, i just don't believe. sorry but i can't make such a promise. i find great problems within islamic theology and i see them in action everyday. clearly you have a kind and gentle heart, so i hope you study hard and become a force in your community.

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.

I don't do anything. Just let em be. This is what I would ask. Do you want people to see your beautiful? Or .. Do you want Allah subhana WA ta'ala to see you beautiful?. Shouldn't be to hard to answer that! Salam

"rather it is altering the creation of Allah Who is the Best of creators." that reasoning always makes me laugh seems how muslims are commanded to shave their pubes, or is that just women? also, muslims often circumcise girls. how is that not altering the creation of allah? and of course you are also commanded to circumcise males. do you not trim your nails? did allah not create them to grow continuosly.

Mike , those that you mentioned are done for hygiene. Also women pluck their eyebrows so much that it forms a new shape. Or it's mot even there and they pencil it in. Argue with Allah all you want. Aoudu billahi. I seek refuge in Allah from that. Salam

"Argue with Allah all you want." thanks. i will. ;)

so you are telling me that the all-knowing, all-powerful god created mankind from scratch. and in his wisdom he put forskin on the penis so it would be unhygienic and then said, cut it off. how many boys do you think are mutulated by bad circumcisions every year?

then allah made the pubic region the second hairest (on most people) place on the body. then said, oh yeah, having hair there is unhygenic. shave it off. lol. i'm starting to like this guy. he is quite the prangster. prost.

p.s. can you shave your legs?
