Islamic Question and Answers

From the Fatwa Department

Q: Can a woman wear coloured contact lenses and can these lenses be worn for beautification purposes ?

Q: What is the ruling regarding women shaping their eyebrows?


 

A: It is not permissible for women to neaten, trim, shape or cut their eyebrows. However, if the eyebrows appear grossly abnormal, extremely long and thick then they may  be trimmed slightly for them to appear normal. (Ahsanul Fatawa Vol. 8 Pg. 76)

There is a Hadith which mentions that women who remove such hair are accursed. The Hadith appears in Sahih Bukhari #4886, Sahih Muslim #2125, Sunan Abi Dawood #4691, Sunan ibni Majah #1989, Sunanud Daarimi Vol.2 Pg. 363 #2647.
