What is the ruling concerning the removal of women's body hair? If it is permitted, who is permitted to do that for her?


Praise be to Allah.

It is permitted for a woman to remove all her body hair, except for her eyebrows and the hair on her head, which she is not permitted to shave or remove by other methods. She may remove other hair herself, or her husband or other mahram may remove it within the limits of what he is permitted to see, or another woman may do this, within the limits of what she is permitted to see.
