The Ruling on Broadcasting the Khutbah in the Sister’s Section- Shaikh Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbad

Question: Is it allowed to broadcast the Jummah Khutbah on the women’s section with both the voice and image of the Khateeb?

Answer: “There is no need for this. [Is] the people’s affair showing pictures and [the women] looking at the men? This is not necessary. The women come to the masjid, stay away from the men, and have the picture of men [displayed] in their section as if they are with the men? This is a great mistake”.

The Ruling on Laser Hair Removal- Shaikh Sulaymaan ar-Ruhayli

Question: May Allah be good to you, what is the ruling on removing the hair on the body and face excluding the eyebrows using a laser? And removing the hair that must be removed for men, like the hair of the armpit and pubic hair, using a laser?

Answer: First: Is it allowed for a woman to remove the hair on the face and the body? We say: as for the eyebrows, then it is not allowed for a woman to remove it nor making it thin it, but leave it as Allah created it. As long as it does not exceed the usual form. If it exceeds the usual form such that it extends until the eyes or distorts the face, and this is not how Allah created women, then it is allowed for a woman to remove what exceeds that usual form. This is not changing the creation of Allah which is beautiful, but rather returning it to the original form.

As for the hair on the face which is not the eyebrows, then the Scholars differ. Some Scholars say that plucking -by which the one who does is cursed-is taking from the face in general. However, what is correct from the statements of the Scholars is that it is allowed for a woman to remove the hair on the face which grows except for the eyebrows. The origin of the woman is that hair does not grow on the face. So it is for her to remove it. As for the hair on the remaining of the body, she can remove it.

A question remains: is it allowed for her to remove the hair of another woman? The answer: as for removing the hair from the places which it is allowed for a woman to uncover in font of another woman, then she can assist her sister in removing it or assist a doctor to remove it.

As for the hair which grows in the places which are not allowed to be uncovered in front of women, then it is not allowed for her to assist in removing this hair because this is not from the way of medicine in which it is allowed for a woman to uncover her awrah. This is only from the way of beautifying the body. So like that: we say: it is not allowed for a woman to remove the hair that grows on the parts where it is not allowed to uncover in front of other women with a laser. This is because it is impossible that it can only occur except with help from another and we have heard from the doctors that what is called the home laser is harmful and it creates harm and burns. So it is not allowed to use.

As for hair which grows in the places which are allowed for a woman to show in front of other women, then it is allowed for a woman to assist her in removing it with a laser in clinics and the likes.

As for a man, then it is not allowed for a man to shave his beard and take from it even if it exceeds a fist length according to the correct opinion from the statements of the People of knowledge. This is because he sallahu alayhi wa salam said:

«وفِّروا اللِّحى»، «أُرخوا اللِّحى»

“Grow the beards” and “Keep the beards”

[From the Hadith of Ibn Umar and other than him in the Saheehayn]

As the remaining hair which has not been reported about removing it, then that which is apparent to me and Allah knows best, is that it is not allowed for a man to remove it because he will become like a woman except if it a lot which harms, then he can make it lessen the harm.

Is it allowed for men to remove the armpit hair using a laser? Yes, if it is affirmed that there is no harm. As for the hair on the pubic area, then it is not allowed to remove it using a laser due to what we mentioned of the cause [exposing the awrah] which is connected to the affair of the women. And Allah knows best”

The Ruling on Removing the Hair on the Hands and Feet – Shaikh Ibn ul-‘Uthaymeen

Question: What is the ruling on removing the hair on the hands and feet?

Answer: “If the hair is a lot then there is no harm in removing it because it is a blemish. If it is regular hair, then some of the People of knowledge say the removing of this hair is changing the creation of Allah. Some of them say: it is allowed because it is what Allah was silent regarding and the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa salam said:

ما سكت الله عنه فهو عفو

Whatever He kept silent about is pardoned

[Saheeh Sunan Abi Dawood no. 3800]

That is: it is not necessary upon you nor prohibited upon you. They say: hair divides into three types:

First type: What the legislation makes it haram to take from

 
Second type: what the legislation requested to take

 
Third type: what the legislation kept quiet about

 
So the legislation prohibited taking from the beard for a man and the eyebrows for a woman and man. The legislation requested for a person to take from his/her armpits and pubic hair and mustache for men. What it is silent about is what is pardoned. If Allah wanted it to be removed He would have ordered for it to be removed and if He wanted for it to remain He would be order for it to remain. So when He kept silent about it, then it returns to the choice of a person. If he wills he can remove it and if they will they can allow it to remain”.

The Ruling on Chewing Gum In Front of Others- Shaikh Ibn ul-‘Uthaymeen

Question: What is your opinion on chewing gum in front of people?

Answer: “In our custom, it is against the manhood/gallantry (المروءة)”.

[Kanz uth-Thameen Fi Su’alaat Ibn Saneed no. 799 pg. 182]

Translator’s Note:

Shaikh Ibn ul-‘Uthaymeen rahimahullah also mentioned this elsewhere in his works:

“What breaches manhood/gallantry according to one people may not be a breach according to other people. It may be a breach of manhood/gallantry in one time period and not in another. So we do not cease to return manhood/gallantry to customs and it is what people know to be good. So then, the issue is according to the customs of people. For example, the Scholars mention: from that which breaches a person’s manhood/gallantry is sleeping between two people who are sitting. So if someone sleeps between two people who are sitting, his manhood/gallantry drops. This is because it is against the usual [custom]. If he exits the same level of two people who are sitting, then his manhood/gallantry will drop. Another example, [if he] goes ahead or behind a row, [his] manhood/gallantry drops, if he chews gum in front of people, his manhood/gallantry drops, if he eats in the market, his manhood/gallantry drops. So we know that the principle for manhood/gallantry is what the people know to be good and what they know to be ugly/evil, then it is against the manhood/gallantry…”

The Ruling on Shortening Some of the Hair And Not Other Parts – Shaikh Ibn ul-‘Uthaymeen

Question: Is shortening some of the hair and not other parts enter into the Qaza’ which is prohibited?

Answer: “No, verily Qaza’ is shaving some of the head and not other parts*

[Kanz uth-Thameen Fi Su’alaat Ibn Saneed no. 716 pg. 166]

*Translator’s Note:

The Shaikh’s fatwa above should be understood to mean that which does not enter into imitating the disbelievers. For the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa salam said:

 تَشَبَّهَ بِقَوْمٍ, فَهُوَ مِنْهُمْ 

He who imitates any people (in their actions) is considered to be one of them

The Ruling on Reciting the Adhkar If One Forgets it – Shaikh Ibn ul-‘Uthaymeen

Question: If he forgets the adhkaar, for example the adkhar for the washroom, does he say it when he remembers?

Answer: “He does not recite it because it is a Sunnah whose place was missed. However, if you remember it close to the time then there is no harm”.

The Ruling on Listening to the Radio – Shaikh Bin Baz

Question: What is the ruling on listening to the radio and the likes if you are listening to or watching what does not have something haram in it?

Answer: “There is no harm in listening to the broadcasts of the Quran on the radio or beneficial Hadith or important news or the likes in terms of what is recorded of the Honorable Quran or beneficial Hadith or advice and the likes. I advise to have concern for listening to the Quran and the program Noor ‘ala darb due to what is in it of great benefit”.
