Sunnats and Aadaab of Keeping the Hair – Part 8

Haircut1. The pubic hair and the hair under the armpits should preferably be shaved once a week. It is better and more rewarding to remove the unwanted hair on the day of Jumuah. If this is not possible, then one can remove the hair every second or third week. However, it is makrooh-e-tahrimi (impermissible) to leave it for more than forty days. 

عن عائشة قالت قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم عشر من الفطرة قص الشارب وإعفاء اللحية والسواك والاستنشاق بالماء وقص الأظفار وغسل البراجم ونتف الإبط وحلق العانة وانتقاص الماء يعنى الاستنجاء بالماء (سنن أبي داود رقم 53)

Hadhrat A'isha (Radiyallahu Anha) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "Ten actions are from among the pure and unadulterated way (i.e. the Sunnah which was practised by all the Ambiyaa of the past); trimming the moustache, lengthening the beard, using the Miswaak, rinsing the nose with water, clipping the nails, washing in between the fingers and joints of the body (the areas that perspire), plucking the hair under the armpits, removing the pubic hair and making istinjaa with water (at the time of relieving oneself)".

وعن أنس قال: وقت لنا في قص الشارب وتقليم الأظفار ونتف الإبط وحلق العانة أن لا تترك أكثر من أربعين ليلة. (مسلم رقم 258)

Hadhrat Anas (Radhiyallahu Anhu) reports: In regard to trimming the moustache, clipping the nails, plucking the hair of the underarms and the shaving of the private areas, a time limit was fixed for us that it should not be left longer than forty days.
