All questions are worthy of asking



My question is kind of puzzling but I think it is important
My question is: Is a man suppose to shave his legs if his hair grows big like we do to over private parts? I 'm asking this question because most of my friends do it and I didn't because I was never told. So please answer this question and don't leave it as joke.
Thank You


Praise be to Allah.

We would never consider your question as a joke for the reason that you do what you are supposed to do by asking about something you dont know its ruling.

At the age of our Prophet Mohammed (Peace Be Upon Him) someone, called Abu-Refaa, may Allah be pleased with him, came to him while he was addressing his speech, and said. Oh Prophet a strange man came to ask about his religion for he knows nothing about it.

Our Messenger came to me, as the man said, leaving his speech and sat on an iron chair, as I believe and start teaching me things he learned from Allah, then he completed his speech.(Narrated by Muslim - # 870)

Hence, it is your right upon us to answer your question if we know its response

Hair is divided into 3 parts:

  • First: Hair that must be removed as the pubic region and the armpit.
  • Second: Hair that must be leftover as it is such as mans beard.
  • Third : Hair that we told nothing about and there is no legal text determines its remaining or its removal. (Though Allah doesnt forget anything in his Quran). This hair is left to you as you want to leave or remove and you are at liberty in that.

(Also see question #451 ) and Allah is the most knowing.
