Ask The Imam Question and Answer

1004 Do you have to remove unnecessary hair, especially in the lower area of body (i.e. shave from navel or just nearest from navel) and if yes then after how many days should this be done?
According to the Sunnah of the Prophet (S.A.W) every adult Muslim, as a part of keeping his body clean, should remove the hair on his pubic area and that which grows under his armpits. This hair may be removed through any method that one feels comfortable with. A person should not let this hair grow for more than (around) forty days, as has been reported in a number of narratives ascribed to the Prophet (S.A.W).
