Sheikh Faysal Mawlawi, deputy chairman of the European Council for Fatwa and Research, stated that: “It is not allowable for a Muslim woman to have a laser hair removal surgery as this involves the uncovering of the `Awrah Mughalazah (the private parts) before another woman which is totally rejected in Islam unless there is a necessity for doing so. Here, removing hair is not a necessity; rather, it is a matter of beautification or a complementary matter.”
Sheikh Abdel Khaliq Hasan Ash-Shareef, a prominent Azharite scholar, adds: “If this laser hair removal operation involves the uncovering of the private parts of a woman, then it is not permissible to undergo it.
However, if the hair removed is in a place other than the private parts and a woman is to do it for another woman, then there is nothing wrong with this. In addition, it should be noted that the use of laser in removing hair should not bring about any dangers or inflict harm on any other bodily part, and the verification of this should be done by consulting a trustworthy Muslim physician. Almighty Allah says: “Spend your wealth for the cause of Allah, and be not cast by your own hands to ruin; and do good. Lo! Allah loveth the beneficent” (Al-Baqarah: 195)
Above all, if the laser hair removal surgery is done by the husband for his wife or by the woman herself, then there is nothing wrong in this.”
