Shaping Eyebrows

Shaping eyebrows is probably the only thing that I have had numerous discussions about with friends and relatives. There are different kinds of reasons for people to do it but from what I gather it's mostly considered something so pettty that no thought is really put in that action, while on the other hand some people clearly know about the hadith of the Rasoolullah (peace and blessings be upon him) in which he curses the woman who shapes her eyebrows and the one who even does it. I myself have been put under pressure twice or thrice to really consider doing it because they are really big and oh well I still love them the way they are.

Moving on, there are even those who question the hadith by asking how come removal of upper lip hair is permitted while this is just mere shaping of an eyebrow. Some choose to explain that they do it because they want to look more appealing to their husbands and honestly All that men care about a woman's eyebrow is that she has a pair of it. Really, its just that much.

So a friend of mine made a wonderful poster that you can see above which goes well with what I really have to say all those peeps concerned with it ;)


  1. What's 'Feesabeelillah Sisters Club'????

  2. mariya - it is my sister's page on facebook :)

  3. If hadith is from authentic source, the sisters should follow it.
    There is no if-why-how allowed in matters of religion.
    When Muslims undertake to be slaves of Allah subhana hu wa taalaa, they need to practice HIS commandments.
    The best example is the Sunnah as practised by the Prophet Muhammad sallaho elaihey wasallem.

  4. Exactly....it isn't always easy, but we should try to follow the sunnah as best as we can. Inshallah it will be worth it!
    Great reminder and quote dear sis Shireen! :)

  5. Tariq - I agree completely with your comment but at the end of the day we all have our struggles. I know sisters who really want to stop yet they are still struggling, we just have to make sincere dua for them.

    Aziz - thank you for reading it :)

  6. What a wonderful quote, Shiru! Love it <3
