Het weghalen van ongewenste snorharen is volgens Shaykh Muhammad al-Saalih ibn ‘Uthaymeen toegestaan. Als motivatie zegt hij dat deze haartjes niet op het gezicht van een vrouw thuis horen en daarom het geen probleem is deze weg te halen.
Wat betreft het blonderen van snorharen heeft hij geen advies over gegeven.
Hier onder een aantal uitspraken van Shaykh Muhammad al-Saalih ibn ‘Uthaymeen, het is wel in het Engels:
Removing facial hair.
With regard to hair which is abnormal, because it grows in places where hair does not usually grow, such as a woman having a moustache or hair growing on her cheeks, there is nothing wrong with removing this, because it is abnormal and is disfiguring to the woman.
The Standing Committee was asked about women removing facial hair, and they replied as follows:
It is OK for a woman to remove hair on the upper lip, thighs, calves and arms. This is not the same as plucking (eyebrows), which is forbidden.
‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz, ‘Abd al-Razzaaq ‘Afeefi, ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Ghadyaan, ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Qa’ood.
Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, 5/194, 195
The Standing Committee was also asked:
What is the ruling on a woman removing hair from her body; if it is permissible, then who is allowed to do that for her?
It is permissible for her (to remove) everything except her eyebrows and the hair on her head; it is not permissible for her to remove those, or to remove anything from the eyebrows whether by shaving or any other means. She, her husband or one of her mahrams may do that for her, with regard to the parts of the body that they are permitted to see; or another woman may do that, with regard to the parts of the body that she is permitted to see.
‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz, ‘Abd al-Razzaaq ‘Afeefi, ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Ghadyaan, ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Qa’ood
Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, 5/194
The hair of the private parts and the thighs may not be seen by either another woman or a mahram.
It is forbidden for a woman to remove her eyebrows or part of them by any means, whether it be by shaving, cutting, using a depilatory substance, because this constitutes the plucking for which the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) cursed the one who does it, i.e., the women who plucks all or part of her eyebrows, claiming that it is for the purpose of beautification, or the woman who does that for her.
This is changing the creation of Allaah which the Shaytaan promised to enjoin upon the sons of Adam.”
