Shaving Or Trimming Chest Hair

Question

I want to know about the chest hairs. Can we trim these hairs like under the arm hairs? Although everyone should adopt the way GOD created us, but apart from showing off fashion, can anyone do this just for his personal deed?


Answer

The Shari'ah has provided guidance only regarding our physical and spiritual cleansing. Chest hair is not directly related to our appearance nor is it a matter of physical cleansing or cleanness. In the absence of an express prescription of the Shari'ah, we cannot say that trimming hair from one's chest is prohibited.

If someone, owing to any reason, trims or shaves the hair from his chest, he may do so.
