The Ruling on Removing the Hair on the Bach, the Legs and Thighs for men


Question :
Is it permissible for men to shave the hair his back, legs and thighs, along with the pubic area and the armpits, without imitating women, or disbelievers such as the People of the Book and others?

Answer :
It is permissible to remove the hair from the aforementioned places, as there is no harm in it to the body, so long as it not done with the intention of imitating women or disbelievers. This is because, fundamentally, things are permissible, and it is not allowed for the Muslim to make anything forbidden except with evidence, and there is no silence of Allah, the Most Glorified and His Messenger Peace Be Upon Him in the matter proves that it is permissible. This is because the Messenger Peace Be Upon Him made it lawful for us o shorten the moustache, trim the nails, pluck the armpits, and shave the pubic region; and He permitted men to shave their heads, and He cursed those women who remove the eyebrow hair of others and those how have their eyebrow hair removed, and he ordered us to grow beards, but he was silent concerning hair other than that. Anything about which Allah and His Messenger Peace Be Upon Him are silent is allowed and it is not permissible for anyone to forbid it, as the Prophet Peace Be Upon Him said, in the Hadith narrated by Abu Tha'labah Al-Khushani:
Verily, Allah has imposed certain obligations, so do not lose them ; and He has imposed certain limits, so do not exceed them ; and He has forbidden certain things, so do not violate them ; and He has silent regarding some things as a mercy to you, not due to forgetfulness, so do not investigate such matters.
"Verily, Allah has imposed certain obligations, so do not lose them ; and He has imposed certain limits, so do not exceed them ; and He has forbidden certain things, so do not violate them ; and He has silent regarding some things as a mercy to you, not due to forgetfulness, so do not investigate such matters."
Ad-Darawutni no. 502 and A; Bayhaqi 10 :12, 13.
A number of scholars have written about the above- mentioned Hadiths and other Hadiths and narrations from the Companions carrying the same meaning. Al-Hafiz Ibn Rajab - may Allah have mercy on him - has mentioned some of them in Jami' Al-Uloom wal-Hakam in his explanation of the Hadiths of Abu Tha'labah. Whoevre wishes to investigate this matter should refer to it. And Allah Knows best.
Ibn Baz
