Q & A: “shaving chest hair…”

SHAVING CHEST HAIR

Q. Bro are we allowd [sic.] to shave or wax our chest hairs?

A.

Yes, although I have heard that there is some element of dislike in it. In the Radd al-Muhtar of Imam Ibn `Abidin, it has:

“There is no harm in shaving hair from the chest or the back…[1]

ولا باس في حلق شعر الصدر والظهر

 And Allah knows best.


[1] Imam Ibn `Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar, vol.6, p.407. See also Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanvi’s, Beheshti Zewar, p.830.
