Quran, Noble Quran

Quran: [17:36] "You shall not accept any information, unless you verify it for yourself. I have given you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brain, and you are responsible for using them."

Quran: [49:12] "O ye who believe! Avoid suspicion as much (as possible): for suspicion in some cases is a sin: And spy not on each other behind their backs. Would any of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Nay, ye would abhor it...But fear Allah. For Allah is Oft-Returning, Most Merciful."

PLUCKING EYEBROWS IS CURSE & FORBIDDEN

Allah has forbidden women to remove any part of the hair of their eyebrows; this action is called al-namas in Arabic, and it is haram.

Namas is the word used to describe plucking the eyebrows, or it was said that it means plucking the facial hair.

“THE WOMAN WHO PLUCKS FACIAL HAIR”

Is the woman who removes hair from her own face or the face of another woman.

“THE WOMAN WHO HAS THIS DONE”

Refer to A woman who plucks hair from her own face or tells another woman to do this for her.

Minmaas refers to tweezers, the tool used to remove a thorn. When a woman removes hair from her face, this can also be done by using a thread. This also includes thinning the eyebrows.

Evidence as follows:

Shaping the eyebrows by trimming, shaving or plucking their edges in order to appear beautiful,

As is done by some women nowadays, is haram because it involves changing the creation of Allah and following the Shaytaan in his tempting of mankind to change the creation of Allah.

Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta ‘ala) says:

“VERILY! ALLAH FORGIVES NOT (THE SIN OF) SETTING UP PARTNERS IN WORSHIP WITH HIM, BUT HE FORGIVES WHOM HE PLEASES SINS OTHER THAN THAT, AND WHOEVER SETS UP PARTNERS IN WORSHIP WITH ALLAH, HAS INDEED STRAYED FAR AWAY. THEY (ALL THOSE WHO WORSHIP OTHERS THAN ALLAH) INVOKE NOTHING BUT FEMALE DEITIES BESIDES HIM, AND THEY INVOKE NOTHING BUT SHAYTAAN, A PERSISTENT REBEL! ALLAH CURSED HIM. AND HE [SHAYTAAN] SAID: ‘I WILL TAKE AN APPOINTED PORTION OF YOUR SLAVES; VERILY, I WILL MISLEAD THEM, AND SURELY, I WILL AROUSE IN THEM FALSE DESIRES; AND CERTAINLY, I WILL ORDER THEM TO SLIT THE EARS OF CATTLE, AND INDEED I WILL ORDER THEM TO CHANGE THE NATURE CREATED BY ALLAH.’ AND WHOEVER TAKES SHAYTAAN AS A WALI (PROTECTOR OR HELPER) INSTEAD OF ALLAH, HAS SURELY SUFFERED A MANIFEST LOSS.”

Surah An-Nisa’ 4:116-119

Al-Qurtubi said in his commentary on the above verse:

A group said what was meant by changing the creation of Allah was tattooing and other things that are done for the purpose of beautification. This was stated by Ibn Mas’ood and al-Hasan.

Tafseer al-Qurtubi 5:392

Narrated by ‘Abd-Allaah (Radia Allahu ‘Anhu) that,

“ALLAH HAS CURSED THE WOMEN WHO DO TATTOOS AND THOSE WHO ASK FOR TATTOOS TO BE DONE, THOSE WHO ASK FOR THEIR EYEBROWS TO BE PLUCKED, AND THE WOMEN ASK FOR THEIR TEETH TO BE FILED FOR THE PURPOSE OF BEAUTIFICATION, CHANGING THE CREATION OF ALLAH.”

A woman from the tribe of Bani Asad whose name was Umm Ya’qoob heard of that and she came and said,

“I HAVE HEARD THAT YOU HAVE CURSED SO AND SO AND SO AND SO.”

He (Radia Allahu ‘Anhu) said,

“WHY SHOULD I NOT CURSE THOSE WHOM THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH (SALLA-ALLAHU ‘ALAYHI WA SALLAM) CURSED AND WHO ARE MENTIONED IN THE BOOK OF ALLAH?’

She said,

“I HAVE READ WHAT IS BETWEEN THE TWO COVERS [OF THE QUR’AN], AND I DID NOT FIND ANYTHING IN IT LIKE WHAT YOU HAVE SAID.”

He (Radia Allahu ‘Anhu) said,

“IF YOU HAVE READ IT, HAVE YOU NOT READ THAT ALLAH (SUBHANAHU WA TA ‘ALA) SAYS,

‘…AND WHATSOEVER THE MESSENGER (MUHAMMAD SALLA-ALLAHU ‘ALAYHI WA SALLAM)) GIVES YOU, TAKE IT, AND WHATSOEVER HE FORBIDS YOU, ABSTAIN (FROM IT)…”

Surah Al-Hashr 59:7

She said,

“OF COURSE.”

He (Radia Allahu ‘Anhu) said,

“HE FORBADE THAT.”

She said,

“I THINK YOUR WIFE DOES IT.”

He (Radia Allahu ‘Anhu) said,

“GO AND LOOK.”

So she went and looked and she did not see what she was looking for.

He (Radia Allahu ‘Anhu) said,

“IF SHE HAD BEEN LIKE THAT, SHE WOULD NOT BE WITH US.”

Bukharee 4604 & Muslim 2125

Al-Qurtubi said concerning the meaning of tattooing:

Tattooing is done on the hand; it involves piercing the back of the hand with a needle and filling it with kohl or another substance so that it changes colour. [Translator’s note: this refers to the type of tattooing known at that time]

Tafseer al-Qurtubi 5:392

Ibn Hajar said concerning the meaning of plucking the eyebrows:

The mutanammisah is the one who asks another to pluck her eyebrows, and the naamisah is the one who does it. Al-nimaas means removing the hair of the face with tweezers. It was said that the word nimaas refers specifically to removing hair from the eyebrows in order to reduce them or make them straight.

Abu Dawud said in al-Sunan:

Al-Naamisah is the one who plucks the eyebrows in order to reduce them.

Fath al-Bari, 10/377

Al-Qurtubi said:

With regard to all of these matters, the hadeeth indicate that those who do them are cursed and that they are major sins. But there is some difference of scholarly opinion concerning the reason why they are forbidden. It was said that it is because it is a kind of deception, or because it is changing the creation of Allah, as Ibn Mas’ood said. This is more correct, and it also includes the first meaning. And it was said that what is prohibited is what is permanent, because it is changing the creation of Allah; with regard to what is not permanent, such as kohl and make-up, the scholars have permitted that.

Tafseer al-Qurtubi, 5/393

In al-Saheeh, it was reported that Ibn Mas’ood (Radia Allahu ‘Anhu) said:

“ALLAH HAS CURSED THE WOMEN WHO DO TATTOOS AND THOSE WHO HAVE THIS DONE, THE WOMEN WHO PLUCK EYEBROWS AND THOSE WHO HAVE THIS DONE, AND THE WOMEN WHO FILE THEIR TEETH AND CHANGE THE CREATION OF ALLAH.”

Then he (Radia Allahu ‘Anhu) said:

“SHOULD I NOT CURSE THOSE WHOM THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH (SALLA-ALLAHU ‘ALAYHI WA SALLAM) CURSED?

Removing facial hair is also forbidden for men.

Al-Mawsoo’ah al-Fiqhiyyah, part 14, Tanammus

Shaykh Ibn Jibreen said:

“It is not permissible to cut the hair of the eyebrows, or to shave it, reduce it or pluck it, even with the husband’s approval. This is not the matter of beauty; rather it is altering the creation of Allah Who is the Best of creators. A warning has been narrated against doing that and the one who does it is cursed; this implies that it is forbidden.

REMARKS FROM QURAN.MU

My dear sisters in Islam, Good Luck. ENJOY YOUR LIFE !

I am sure that you will say, we continue Plucking eyebrows etc, then when times come at your Old age, when your Sexual Desires starts decreasing, they will make Tawbah and go to perform Hajj, by putting in mind that Allah (SWT) will forgive you.

But I will say: I am not sure that Allah (SWT) will forgive you, after you had read the above. ENJOY LIFE ONCE AGAIN !
