Purification / Using wax to clean the armpits

Using wax to clean the armpits

I heard from some shuyukh that it has been reported in a hadith that a woman should not use wax or syrup to remove the hair under her armpits or in her lower area!! استخدام الحلاوة في تنظيف الإبطين

Praise be to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and his companions.

As to what follows:

In response to your question, we say, and with Allah Almighty lies all success:

From what is apparent to me, there is nothing wrong with a woman using that for removing whatever is sunnah to remove of hair. However, the sunnah for removing hair from the private area is to shave it, not pluck it. So it is better not to pluck, whether by waxing or anything else. Rather, she should use a razor for that.

May Allah grant us and you guidance for whatever He loves and is pleased with.

 Your brother,

Dr. Khalid al-Muslih
