‘hair removal’

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.

A: وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته
Rule: Salah would be accepted with such detergents upon your clothing, primarily due to the extensive change that has transpired from its original state, (as well as its minuscule amount being used as part of the ingredient list.)
Advice: In your case, since you seem like an obedient servant of Allah (SWT) and wanting to do the correct thing, i would recommend that you have a few sets of clothing that you use only for a salah — clothing you have washed without such (animal product) detergent, this way your heart would not be restless. Give Allah (SWT) the most pure and inshalAllah you shall gain the greatest acceptance from Allah (SWT).
Allah Certainly Knows Best.
