Is it not permissible for a woman to remove another woman’s pubic hair.

Q:

Aoa, due all respect , i would like to know that can a shia (baligh=adult) woman allowed to remove her pubic hair by any other woman either muslim or non muslim (any age ) kindly reply me according to shia fiqh

A:

Assalamu Alaykum
Thank you for your Question.

It is Haram for one to see or show his or her private part to another (other than the persons spouse).
So it is not permissible for a woman to remove another woman’s pubic hair. As the process involves seeing others private part and that is Haram.

Hope this helps
