Shaping of Eyebrows

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.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

Was Salaam
