Q: This is another question about hair removal, please forgive me if it seems trivial. There are procedures for permanent removal of hair. Are these permissible for a woman/men and doing it for husband/wife or is it considered changing Allah’s creation like plastic surgery? Because the hair will never grow back after this type of procedure.

A: Woman must have the hair(s) removed by a woman, preferable by a female that is part of the same faith. The one removing such hairs must not view the awrah (that which is private) unless it is the spouse that is removing such unwanted hairs for his/her spouse. Alternatively, the hairs of the awrah can only be removed by a ‘stranger’ under conditions of emergency (surgery, etc.)
One must seek removal of hairs that would not create greater problems such as scaring, burns, and other adverse related affects.
For a man to remove chest hairs, leg hairs etc. would be makrooh.
Allah Certainly Knows Best.
