Is Laser Hair Removal Allowed?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Ustadha Shaista Maqbool
Question: assalamu alaykum.
1 – Is it haram to have laser hair removal done?
2 – If it is not haram, is there any places which should be left alone e.g. I know women are not allowed to laser their eyebrows, and men are not allowed to laser their beards. Apart from these two areas where else is forbidden?
Answer: Wa’alaikum assalaam warahmatu Allah,
Yes, laser hair removal is allowed.
Apart from eyebrows and beard for men, only those places that require uncovering of one’s nakedness would be prohibited; so if it doesn’t require one to expose one’s nakedness, it is permissible to do laser hair removal there.
