Darul Uloom again releases a strange fatwa, saying shaving and waxing is not good as per Sharia

While issuing a strange fatwa, Darul Uloom of Deoband said that waxing and shaving are not considered good in Sharia. It was asked by a person named Abdul Aziz that whether shaving and waxing in hands and feet by women and men is allowed under Sharia or not?

In their reply, the fatwa department of Deoband said that it is not allowed under Sharia, except for the lower part of the navel, besides the armpits and moustaches, to remove hair from any other part of the body. In his written fatwa, Deoband said that it is against cleaning of hair through waxing and shaving.

  • Waxing and shaving called as ‘Khilaf-e-adab’.
  • Practice was questioned by a man named Abdul Aziz.
  • Darul Uloom had earlier issued fatwa against saying ‘Bharat mata ki jai’.

When asked about this strange fatwa, when the Maulana Salim Ashraf Qasmi of Deoband, said that this fatwa is absolutely correct. According to Sharia rules. In the fatwa waxing and shaving called as ‘Khilaf-e-adab’, not ‘haram’.

Let it be said that this is not the first time that such a strange fatwa has been issued by Deoband. Earlier, a similar fatwa was issued. It was said that wearing bangles (at shops) by the hands of unknown men is against Islam and is considered sin. In addition, another fatwa had said that it is un-Islamic for women to cast ‘mehndi design’ on their hands by unknown men. It is not justified under Sharia.

Daroom Uloom Deoband is located in Saharanpur district of Uttar Pradesh. It is believed to be Asia’s largest seminary (Madarsa). It often remains in the headlines for controversial fatwas. Once a fatwa saying Bharat Mata ki jai’ is not suitable for Muslims, was issued on behalf of Darul Uloom.

Darul Uloom had also said about abortion that it is a crime to kill foetus in Islam, and it has been condemned in the Quran Sharif. Duroom Uloom, had also condemned having artificial hair, beard or mustache.
