general meaning of the words of the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be

Concerning that,
reference should be made to specialists. Ibn Muflih (may Allah have mercy on
him) said in al-Adaab ash-Shar‘iyyah (3/97): It is haraam to treat
sickness or apply to the eyes anything that is najis [impure], taahir [pure]
but haraam, or harmful, and so on. End quote.


That should not involve extravagant or wasteful spending;
rather the hair should be removed by the normal means by which it is removed
in such cases, with no need for spending large amounts of money, for
something concerning which the most that can be said is that it is
permissible or an adornment, whilst noting that some scholars differ as to
whether it is even permissible in the first place.

otherwise; rather whatever is permissible at times other than Ramadan does
not become prohibited by fasting.
