Question By : Adeel Hassan

Assalamu Alaikum! I have 2 Questions; 1. Do Women need to clean the Dirty Hairs from the body just like men do? How and When? 2. About Talaq... Its been a very hot debate that talaqs whatever is the number will be counted as one if it is given in one setting. Is it correct according to Hanafi Fiqa?

The answer to your question is as follows:

1. Yes, shaving armpit and pubic hair is necessary for both men and women preferably once in a week or at least once in 40 days. Nevertheless, women should avoid using ironic instrument such as blade instead they should apply hair removing lotion for the purpose.
Narrated by Abu-Huraira (R.A): I heard the Prophet saying Ą°Five practices are characteristics of the Fitrat: circumcision, shaving the pubic hair, cutting the moustaches short, clipping the nails, and depilating the hair of the armpitsĄ±. The Hadith is common for both men and women.
(Saheeh Al-Bukhaari, Vol: 07, Hadith No. 779)
