Threading for mens

May 22, 2021 | Miscellaneous


AssalamuAlykum WW.

I wanted to ask if removing the hair in between the two eyebrows, is permissible to remove for men?

Also is it permissible for men to thread the hair on their face, for example, the hair just above the beard in order to shape up their beard?

JazakAllah khair


It is permissible to remove the hair above the nose, which forms a uni-brow. Similarly, one is permitted to remove the hair on their cheeks and face. However, a non-mahram beautician or practitioner cannot do this procedure for them; it must be a male or a mahram female.
