Is it permissible for a man to remove hair from inbetween his eyebrows? What about removing stray hair from face?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
If a man’s eyebrows appear abnormal, it will be permissible for him to fix it to the extent that it appears normal. More than this is not permissible. Similarly, if a man has stray hair on his face (not including the beard area), he can remove them.
وفي التاترخانية عن المضمرات ولا بأس بأخذ الحاجبين وشعر وجهه ما لم يشبه المخنث اهـ ومثله في المجتبى ( رد المحتار: 6/373 سعيد )
(وانظر: أحسن الفتاوى: 8/75،76 )
And Allah knows best.
