can you shave — what about the eyebrow


i heard that it is harram to shave, and since i am hanafi i found out that you cant shave your jaw down. But 1) can you shave below the chin and the neck if your hair is growing there? 2) Is it also harram to trim your eyebrow so it doesnt become a unibrow.

A1:   وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته

The matter of beard has little to do with you being a hanafee, maliki, etc.

You cannot shave any part of hair that exists upon the jaw bone. These hairs must maintain the sunnah length under general circumstances.

2: One can pluck a little of the hair that exists in the middle to avoid it being a ‘uni-brow.’ One can pluck it so as to look a little neat. To do so would not be viewed as haram.

Allah Certainly Knows Best.
