Ruling on selling razors

Question

My father sends me boxes of razors to sell. Given that these razors are usually used for shaving beards, and rarely for shaving moustaches and pubic hairs, and for this reason I feel doubtful, is it halaal or haraam, i.e., should I sell them or not?

Answer

Praise be to Allaah. 

It is not haraam for you to sell them and benefit from their price, but they are haraam for the one who intends to use them for a haraam purpose.
