It is permissible for a man to remove hair from his body, e.g. chest hair, hair of one’s back etc ?

Question Is it an accurate rule of thumb that a man can remove any bodily hair apart from the beard? Answer: ﺑﺴﻢ اﷲ اﻟﺮﺣﻤﻦ اﻟﺮﺣﯿﻢ In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

It is permissible for a man to remove hair from his body, e.g. chest hair, hair of one’s back, and leg/arm hair; however, it is unethical to do so.


Nonetheless, it is prohibited to shave off one’s eyebrows or shape them in such a way that one would look effeminate.

Only Allah knows best
