The Sunnah indicates that it is prescribed to remove pubic hair and armpit hair. The wisdom behind the prescription of removing the hair from these two places — and Allah knows best — is that removing it helps one to attain a perfect level of cleanliness and prevents what could emanate from them of bad smells if the hair was left without removing it. And there are other reasons and wisdom behind it. What was well known at the time of the Prophet blessings and peace of Allah be upon him was that they would use a razor to shave their hair. What is meant is so that she may remove her pubic hair, and the word used in this hadith refers to shaving, because that is the usual method of removing hair, but that does not mean that it is not allowed to use something other than a razor. End quote. So I picked up the razor and stood by his head. The Sunnah with regard to the removal of pubic hair is to shave it. In the case of armpit hair, the Sunnah is to pluck it, but if a person simply trims it, there is nothing wrong with that, but it is not what is best. Ibn Qudaamah may Allah be pleased with him said: Shaving the pubic hair is mustahabb and is part of the fitrah, and it is very inappropriate to leave it, so it is recommended to remove it, and whatever means one uses, there is nothing wrong with it, because the point is to remove it.
Allaah has prescribed for His Prophet peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him and his ummah the Sunan al-Fitrah practices that are in accordance with the natural inclinations of man. The Prophet peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him set a time limit with regard to some of these sunnahs, stating that they should not be left for more than forty days, as narrated in the hadeeth of Anas may Allaah be pleased with him who said: A time limit was set for us with regard to cutting the moustache, clipping the nails, plucking the armpit hairs and shaving the pubes — we were not to leave these for more than forty days. No man should be with another man under one cover and no woman should be with another woman under one cover. There is no dispute among the scholars on this point. In the case of mahrams, it is permissible for them to look at one another from above the navel and below the knee. All that we have said about looking being forbidden applies when there is no need to do so, and what we have said about it being permissible among mahrams applies when there is no desire involved. With regard to using wax instead of plucking, this is permissible, The Standing Committee was asked: is it permissible for a man to use wax to remove hair such as armpit and pubic hair?

Like many other young women, the first thing I learned about my body as a 13 year old was how to conform it to society's standards. And in addition to being obedient and having a knack for cooking and housework, society expected me to have a hairless, thin body. Because I grew up in Turkey, where women are still devoted to ancient waxing practices, the rite of passage didn't come by way of a candy-hued, friendly Venus razor. It came through a one-inch thick disk of clear, amber-coloured hard wax, warm and sticky -- a far more vengeful goddess than its Western counterpart, as I was later to find out. Prior to our yearly seaside vacation, my mother pulled me aside and told me it was time I learned how to remove my body hair by myself, so that like her and every other "orderly" Turkish women I could practice it every month.
