  If the removing of hair is by means of pulling out the hair from its roots, it is the conduct which was cursed by the prophet PBUH, but if it was by means of shaving or scissoring, it is disliked by some of the scholars of Islam: Some of them prohibited the shaving & scissoring of brows & they considered it as same as pulling out the brow hair from its roots.  It is allowed only if the hair is long that it readres the eyes & harm them.

Timmering, neating shaving or pulling out the hair of the brows is known as Namas and the PROPHET MOHAMMED PBUH curses it.  Therefore it is not permitted by Islam.

Shaikh Abdel Aziz Bin Baz was asked the following question:

What is the opinion of Islam regarding removing of the hair which appears on the face of a woman?

Answer:

If the removed hair was growing on the brows or other part of the face it is an act of Namas which is cursed by Islam.  But if the hair was growing in an eccentric manner which deform the feminity of the woman and makes her appear like a man with beard and moustache then there is no wrong in removing it.

Shaikh Salih El Fozan was asked the following question: -

What is the opinion of Islam regarding the cliniuration of all or part of the hair of the brows by means of shaving, trimming or chemical eliminations?

Answer:

 Islam does not permit the elimination of some or part of the hair of the brows by any means whether shaving, timmering or chemical elimination as such an act is called Namas.  The practice and the practiced of Mohammed PBUH.  Because it is an act which aims at changing the creation of Allah.  The Almighty.  It is a satanic act.  Satan cunningly determined to corrupt the Man and ask him to change the creation and the original shape, which Allah has accepted, to man.  Allah tells man that Sattan said: I will order them to slit the ears of cattle’s and to deface the (fair) nature created by God”. [4:119] Therefore, what Islam asked them to do we must obey & practice and whatever it prohibited us and asked us not to do we must avoid.  Quran says, “ So take what the Apostle assigns to you, and dury yourselves that which he withholds from you”. [59:7]

 

 The permanent Committee for Decrees was asked the following question:

What is the opinion of Islam regarding the linking of artificial hair with the hair of head?

Answer:

  Islam doesn’t permit a woman to connect an artificial hair with her hair.

The permanent Committed for Decrees was asked the following questions: -

What is the opinion of Islam regarding putting-on, by a woman, of an artificial so that it appears fairer before her husband?

The husband and the wife must be fair before each other but within the limit of the teachings of Islam.  The putting on of an artificial hair (Barooca) was practiced first by non-Muslims woman and then it gradually inept into the Islamic society.  Therefore it is an act which is foreign to the Islamic society and a Muslim women must not imitate non-Muslims otherwise she will be like them.  The prophet PBUH say, “ Whoever imitate (non-Muslims) he is one of them”.

 

Shaikh Abdella El-Fozan was asked the following question: -

What is the opinion of Islam regarding the hair dying that makes the hair black?

Answer: 

The dying of the hair by black dying by women is not permitted by Islam.  It is mentioned that on the day of opening Mecca, the hair and beard of Jabir Bin Abdullah was white, therefore, the Prophet PBUH said “Change this white hair but avoid blackening” He also warned against blackening of the hair.  He said, “A time will cone when some people will blacken their hair and make it like the feather of the black dove, they will never smell the odour of paradise”

Shaikh Moh’d bin Salih El Otheimeen was asked the following question:-

What is the opinion of Islam regarding the dying of woman’s hair by colours other than black colour such as brown etc.

Answer:

 A woman may dye her hair by colour other than black dying by it must be within a reasonable limit and it must not make a woman becomes like non Muslim woman as this is not permitted by Islam.

Shaikh Bin Otheimeen was asked the following question:

          Is it permitted to dye some part of the hair such as its ends or its upper parts? 

Answer: 

If the dying was by the use of black dying it is prohibited by Islam.  The prophet PBUH allowed the changing of the colour of the white hair but to avoid blackening.  He said, “Change this white hair but avoid blackening”, He warned of blackening the hair. However, it is permitted to dye it with colours other than black but even this permission also is limited by rationalization of the dying by other colours.  In other words, dying by other colour must not be taken as a habit that change Muslim women and make then like non-Muslim woman.  The Prophet PBUH said “Whoever makes himself like non-Muslim he is one of them”.  Moreover, if the original colour of the hair was the black colour it is good to change it to another colour because the original in hair is black and its changing is act of deforming and disfiguring rather than decorating on beautifying.  It also makes the Muslim woman like the non- Muslims.

Shaikh Mohd bin Salih El Otheimeen was asked the following question:

          What is the opinion of Islam regarding the dying of the whole hair by any one of the dying colours such that red, yellow, white or golden?

Answer:

Dying of the hair by black dying is not permitted by Islam.  But its dying by other colour is permitted.

Shaikh Salih El Fouzan was asked the following question:

          What is the opinion of Islam regarding the covering of the face by a woman so that non-Mahran may not see her?  

Answer: 

The Islamic teaching order the woman to veil her face and not to allow non-Mihrams to see it.  Aishaa PBUH says that while they were travelling with the PROPHET PBUH women were veiling their faces when the travelling men cross by them.  When they pass off the women unveil their faces and so on.  Therefore I advise the Muslim women to red the books related to Hijab and Purdah which deal with this issue in a unite sufficient manner.

 

The permanent Committed for Decrees was asked the following questions:-

          What is the opinion of Islam regarding women who dress Hijab (purdah) but appear before foreign men exposed and sometimes sit with them and drink tea or coffee or go out with them at the sight of their sponsor who do not express any opposition?

Answer:

 Islam prohibits women from going out exposed-face.  It also prohibits woman from sitting with foreign men or going out with them.

Shaikh Mohammed Bin Ibrahim was asked the following question:

          What is the opinion of Islam regarding a woman who exposes her face and hands before foreign men?

Answer:

 According to the ELHAKIM who related from Ibn Masood that the latter said about the Quranic verse “That they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinary) appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms” [24-30-31], that the term “they should not display their beauty” The beauty, here means gold and other ornaments and the term “except what ((must ordinary)) means the face and the two hands and the ring.  However, according to Ibn Abee Shaiba who related from Ikram who dealt with the term “except what (must ordinary) appear” by interpreting it to be face and the two hands.  According to Aishaa PBUH once entered to the prophet PBUH, She was dressing short dresses.  The prophet PBUH turned his face away from her and told her, ‘ Asma, If a woman reaches the age of puberty ((menses)) nothing must appear from her except this, and he pointed at his face and two hands”.

          Abu Dawood related that the prophet PBUH said “If the maid menses it is not good to see from her except her face and hands up to the join” Therefore the most correct interpretation to the prophets saying and the above Quranic verse seems to be dear evidenced to the fact that if the woman is ordered to veil her head, face and chest, then it is natural that is ordered to include the head, the neck and the chest under the veil.  Bukhair related from Aishaa PBUH that she said, “May Allah bless the wives of the finest Muhajireen (migrators) that they obeyed the verse “that they should draw their veils over their bosoms” and consequently they veiled themselves according to the teaching of Islam.  Unfortunately, today many Muslims women resemble themselves to n9on-Muslims women and adopt latest fashions and claim them to be Islamic uniform.  The true Islamic uniform must neither be transparent nor describe the shape of the body.  It must be wide, loose and covering all part of the body.  A trouser cannot be suitable dress for women even if it was loose and wide because it described and moreover it also makes the woman have shapes like men and it also makes women like non-Muslims women.

          As far as the verse of Quran deals with the respectable Islamic uniform of the old women who have no desire for men and marriage and whose messes caused to appear they are the women. If men see them from sexual point of view they will feel disgust.  Such women may put their clothes on themselves and it is better to be covered according to the teaching of Islam so that they may appear as model behaviour for the young generation.  It is better for them not to show off or decorate themselves before strange men.  The Quranic verse which deals with such women and give above meaning says, “The old ladies who don’t desire marriage, The may appear respectably dressed, not absolutely veiled and not displaying decorations but if they elevate themselves by veiling themselves, it would be better for themselves.  “They must not show off any sign of decoration that may more the aurinality of ill hearted me.    In other words, the above Quranic verse prefers that even the old women who don’t desire to get married must appear veiled and respectable Islamic dress before strange men.

          Um Salma PBUH related that She & Maimoona were near the Prophet PBUH when Ibn Un Maktoun entered.  This man was blind.  The prophet PBUH ordered them to get veiled.  When they told the Prophet PBUH that the man is blind and cannot see, the Prophet PBUH asked them whether they were blind and if they could not see him [Refer to Tirmizi]
