Is it allowed for other women to view women's body including their private parts?
  • Question:

    For hair removal purposes, is it allowed for other women to view women's body including their private parts?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    In Islam, a woman may not show or expose her nudity except to her husband. A Muslim woman can expose any part of her body to another woman except the portion that is between the knee to the naval. This principle is only broken if the matter is a medical surgery or something of a similar dire necessity.

    And Allah knows best.
