What if ones husband wants eyebrows to be removed?

Modifying eyebrows is haraam in Islam...but what if one's husband wants it to be removed. The woman do not even come in front of any Na Mahram with her eyebrows modified so is it still haraam?


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

It is absolutely forbidden for believing women to shape the eyebrows, no matter be it only for the husband or any other thing. The blessed prophet (pbuh) has cursed those who remove hair from their eyebrows.

Dear sister, after this command, if your husband wants you to remove your eyebrow hair then you should not obey your husband in going against the command of Allah, as the creation is not to be obeyed when it involves disobedience to the creator.

Narrated by An-Nawwas ibn Sam'an Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "A creature is not to be obeyed when it involves disobedience to the Creator." Al-Tirmidhi [3696] And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
