Where can I find this Islamic Legal Maxim

Dear respected Shaykh, assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. I want to be advised of where the Islamic legal maxim which states the contradicting the etiquettes of the Sharee'ah is detestable but not prohibited can be found. Is dying the beard and plucking the eyebrows included in this maxim?

أين أجد هذه القاعدة الشرعية؟

All praise is due to Allah. May Allah's peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and companions.

To proceed:

This maxim was mentioned by a number of scholars including ibn 'Abdul Barr in at-Tamheed 1/142,397 and 11/13. Ibn Rajab mentioned this maxim in Jaami' al-'Uloom wa al-Hikam when he explained the hadeeth, "Indeed Allah has prescribed duties." It was also mentioned by al-Hafiz ibn Hajar in Fath al-Baari 1/253.

Undoubtedly plucking eyebrows does not fall under this maxim because Allah cursed the person who does that. This cannot be interpreted to mean detestability. And Allah knows best.
