Which Pubic Hairs Should Be Removed?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by SeekersGuidance Answers Service

Question: I would like to know which area constitutes the pubic region ( from which pubic hair must be removed). Are the testicles included ?

Answer: Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

I pray that you are in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.

The hair which should be cut is that which surrounds the front private part, and above it up to the navel.
It would also be recommended to remove the hair from between one’s buttocks as this is closer to cleanliness.

And Allah alone gives success.
