Inshallah this finds you well and at peace.

Tidying / Removal / Plucking of Eyebrows

Our sunni sisters cite a hadith from Ibn Masaood that the removal of eyebrows and the person who remonves them is a haram act. They only allow the plucking of the middle area between the nose so as not to be like a man. However most shiasisters do not consider it haram and have beautifully shaped brows to form a nice tidy shape - no complete removal of course

Please can you help me. Is the hadith weak if so in ehat way? Is there any hadith to prove it is halal. How do you suggest I explain this to my sunni friends. What are the limitations guidelines is it zina or is it all about intention?

Thank you and May Allah bless you and your family.
Answer: According to the major Marjas, this is not permissible for her except that she is safe from falling into forbidden activities and does not intend by it to excite non-mahram men.

In terms of the Hadith, it is not permissible if it tempts a non-mahram man or normally causes him excitement.
