Asalamalikum brother Ahmer,Is it allowed in ISLAM to shave or wax chest hair?actually i am a professional bodybuilder ie i need to wax my body.

Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Rahim (In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)


Dear Brother,

From the navel till the knees you are not allowed to show these body parts to anybody. Therefore ensure your career doesnt ear you sin !

For shaving of body hair - there is no hadith specifically over this.

Bukhari Volumn 007, Book 072, Hadith Number 832.
Narated By 'Abdullah : Allah has cursed those women who practise tattooing and those who get it done for themselves, and those who remove hair from their faces, and those who artificially create spaces between their teeth to look beautiful, such women as alter the features created by Allah. Why should I not then curse those whom Allah's Apostle has cursed and that is in Allah's Book?
