Muslim girls shaving their legs
Fatwa No: 84018


I would like to know if Muslim girls are allowed to shave their legs.


Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the World; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.

There is no an evidence in Shari'a that prohibits or commands shaving/removing the hair of a woman's/man's leg. Such a matter comes under the ruling that applies to the matters about which the Lawmaker has kept silent. Thus, a person has the choice to do or not.
Allah knows best.
