The sunan al-fitrah (lit., "customs of nature") are a collection of hygienic or cosmetic practices enjoined by the Prophet[saas] as consistent with fitrah:

'A'isha reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Ten are the acts according to fitra: clipping the moustache, letting the beard grow, using the tooth-stick, snuffing water in the nose, cutting the nails, washing the finger joints, plucking the hair under the armpits, shaving the pubes and cleaning one's private parts with water. The narrator said: I have forgotten the tenth, but it may have been rinsing the mouth.(Sahih Muslim, II.502)[6]

Certain other practices, e. g. tattooing, plucking the eyebrows, wearing wigs or hairpieces, or filing down the teeth, were specifically discouraged or forbidden by the Prophet[saas] as contrary to fitrah

removing the pubic hair is complusary for men and women and must be done every

"The Prophet is reported to have said:“The fitrah consists of five things: circumcision, trimming the moustache, cutting the nails, plucking the armpit hairs and shaving the pubic hairs” "

Hmm, I see no gender specificity here, so if you are a woman and have facial hair -a moustache, for example- you may not trim it, and men should also shave their pubic hair and pluck their armpit hairs.

In any case, Muslims men and women who fail to do what the fitrah demands will SURELY go to hell when they die, because it shows that their hearts have a disease; they are lost losers, even worse than Jews, a.k.a., apes and pigs.

Some do, some don't. It is not a religious thing at all. Many men, like me, like the sides trimmed but the bush intact. Many American women shave because they thing men prefer it. Wrong.

lol yes it is.

Take a look-see at " themuslimwoman.com ." Muslims women have to be very concerned about their hygiene and hair removal: THey have to PLUCK out their ARMPIT hairs and shave their pubes. Leg shaving is optional and eyebrow removal is absolutely VERBOTEN, I mean, haram.

Muslim men have to shave their scrotums and get rid of hair around their anuses...Yuck. More information than I wanted.(from another website but I had to mention it). I can't get the image of scruffy old Yassar Arafat out of my mind. Was he possibly cleaner shaven on his privates??!!!

What I don't understand is the practice of "ghusl" which is when all parts of the body are thoroughly washed. It is required after marital intercourse (and other instances) but not, apparently BEFORE sexual intercourse. In MY house, things are the exact opposite, thank you very much. We bathe beforehand and then bask later...

Ruling on removing pubic hair for an old man who is unable to do this for himself

When my father became very old and was no longer able to take care of his own personal hygiene needs, I used to trim his moustache and shave his pubic hairs for him, but this meant that I saw his ‘awrah (private parts, which should remain covered) without intending to. Is this a sin on my part or not? I heard that the person who sees his parents’‘awrah has to fast for two months – is this correct or not?

Praise be to Allaah.

There is no sin on you if you remove your father’s pubic hair when he cannot do this for himself. What you have heard about having to fast for two months is not correct.

Muslim friends,
I want to ask u one question. One day, I was chatting with a girl from Pakistan. A girl told me an interesting fact, that in Muslim religion, it is paramount, impreative and compulsory for all the women of all ages and all families to keep it tidy and clean, and smooth and shaved down there.
But, Muslim religion is close to Sikh religion, and
Sikh religion does not allow its adherents to cut or shave or trim or snip or pull or even pluck hair from any part of the body, nowhere.
Is it true, Muslims?
First of all, Islam is not close to any rleigion, because Islam is not a rleigion - it is a LifeStyle.
Second, wheter you want to shave any body hair, is up to you, it's not compulsory.

NO christianity is about a lifestyle change islam is about do this and don't do that. You are about WORKS and christians are about relationship with the LIVING God that you can PERSONALLY know.

Islam calls men and women to remove that unwanted hair , so why you focus on women?!! I don't understand. Women naturally care more about their appearance and hygiene than men, but it doesn't mean that they are the only who meant to remove hair from these parts, men also have to.

why would men and women need to remove hair from there? there is a reason God made hair grow there.

Oh really?so, can you generalize?Would it be possible that a person never remove it?Can you imagine that?Then ,yes ,therec is reason. that hair is a sign that a male or female now is adult ,not a child.
