Men removing body hair


1. Is it permissable for males to remove hair on the following body parts: the chest, feet, hands and forearms, and legs.

2. While making masah of a zulfar in wudhu, is it permissible to groom the hair, e.g wetting it and grooming it in such a way where one ensures that it is neat.


1. This is a culture that is coming up starting from kuffaar quarters. You should in every way oppose this type of a culture.

2. It is permissible.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
