I do the unibrow.  My husband asks me why because I am naturally a blonde so my eyebrows can't be seen (I don't wear make up, so I always look eyebrow-less).

I could care less about having arched eyebrows.  If someone wants to judge me for my eyebrows, they have some serious issues.

My dear Sisters

Please do not be under ANY illusions- removing ANY hair from the actual eyebrows is haraam.

Yes some jurists may try to distort Hadith to suit their own opinions, but they are authentic hadith clearly stating that Allah's curse is one those women who remove eyebrow hair/shape their eyebrows like a bow.

But if you do want to try to reconcile these opinions, just remember the Hadith that states you should stay away from unclear matters. This is definitely one of those so please please do not do it.

And if your husband requests it??? lol Obey Allah above all else- your Lord and Creator. There is no obedience to creation in disobedience to Allah. Please sisters, do not try to cling on to ridiculous reasons to commit this trivial thing. 

I see it as I will have enough to be accountable for on the Day of Judgment. I don't want to add this sin, which is so easy to avoid, to my record too.

This is exactly how I would understand it. If your husband requests it then I thought it would be allowed.

Obviously this would only stand for certain requests such as this?

The article is very detailed, and here is the summary:

SUMMARY:

''To sum up, according to the majority of classical jurists, it is permitted for married women to pluck, trim and neaten their eyebrows ‘slightly’ for their husbands, provided they do not expose them in front of non-Mahram men. As for non-married women, this remains impermissible. However, if the eyebrows look deformed and defected then it is permissible for even non-married women to turn them into a more normal size. Trimming the eyebrows excessively into a thin fine line is not permitted for both married and not married women, since it distorts one’s appearance and results in imitating immoral women.

And Allah knows best

Women Plucking their Facial Hairs
Responses
Dr. Shehzad Saleem


Response: In one of your answers you have stated that there is nothing wrong with women plucking their facial hairs. I have some reservations about your deduction as I have contrary evidence: `

Abdullāh Ibn Mas`ūd has reported: Allah curses those ladies who practice tattooing and those who get themselves tattooed, and those ladies who remove the hair from their eyebrows and faces and those who make artificial spaces between their teeth in order to look more beautiful whereby they change Allah's creation.

His saying reached a lady from Banī Asad called Ummi Yāqūb who came (to `Abdullāh) and said: I have come to know that you have cursed such-and-such (ladies)? He replied: Why should I not curse these whom Allah's Apostle has cursed and who are (cursed) in Allah's Book! Ummi Yāqūb said: I have read the whole Qur'ān, but I did not find in it what you say. He said: Verily, if you have read it (i.e. the Qur'ān), you have found it.

Didn't you read: And whatsoever the Apostle gives you take it and whatsoever he forbids you, you abstain (from it). (59.7)

She replied: Yes, I did. He said: Verily, Allah's Apostle forbade such things. She said: But I see your wife doing these things? He said: Go and watch her. She went and watched her but could not see anything in support of her statement.

On that he said: If my wife was as you thought, I would not keep her in my company. (Bukhārī, Kitābu'l Libās) The opinion here in Saudia is that the word plucking/removing is used and with special reference to face; therefore any form of removal of hair from face is cursed according to this hadīth.

Now as my wife practices Hairdressing, Electrolysis and Beauty Therapy she is a bit confused at your reply. She has been studying Islam at her college for the past four years. She has been taught that such a practice is strictly forbidden. She has since then stopped doing so, but when we read your view, the subject has come up again. We would like to know the proof of your deduction.


Comment: In my opinion, one must always keep in consideration two fundamental principles while studying and interpreting Ahādith:

Firstly, to determine, as far as possible, the context and the background, all Ahādith on a particular subject should be collected and then analyzed as to ascertain the overall picture which emerges.

Secondly, they must be related to the Qur’ān and Sunnah. This means that they must have a base in these two primary sources of Islam. They cannot and must not be taken independently.

Applying these principles to the hadīth you have referred to shows that there were a number of practices (only some of which have been mentioned in this hadīth) which the Arab ladies used to undertake which entirely changed their natural physical appearance and some of which actually gave a false impression of their outward looks. Almost all the major books of hadīth mention the various texts in which these practices have been is narrated.

The initial part of the hadīth you have alluded to `... whereby change Allah's creation' itself suggests the relationship of this hadīth with the Qur’ān:. Verse 31 of Sūrah Rūm, reads thus:

Follow the nature upon which Allah has created mankind. It is not proper to change this nature. (31:31)

It is in accordance with this principle mentioned in the Qur’ān that the Prophet (sws) forbade a number of such practices. In other words, the nature -- physical as well as spiritual -- of a human being must be preserved in the shape Allah has created. Consequently, anything which may become a means of changing or modifying this nature is undesirable.

However, a fine distinction exists between beautification to quench one's aesthetic sense and alteration, the former being a permissible thing.

These Ahādith also mention a practice called "Tannamus" which means removing the hair which extends on to the forehead in a particular style. This again was forbidden by the Prophet (sws).

The hadīth you have mentioned contains this word; however it has been erroneously translated as `to remove hair from the face'. In the light of this analysis, it is evident that removing hair from the face is something which the Prophet (sws) never did forbid.

So is cleaning of the eyebrows permitted then? Not shaping, i mean removing the extra hair/unibrow.....

I know that some scholars say it is allowed whilst others say its haram, but what if a womans eyebrows resemble a mans?

Thank you for taking your time in reading and replying to this post

Allah hafiz


Don't get confused sister Allah is great and merciful
