Title: Tell me about undershave for men and women? and having girl friend in Islam?



The area of shaving for a person (male/female) is above and around the
private parts. The area immediately under the navel is not to be shaven. If
possible, it is commendable to shave around the hind private part as well.
(Al-Kaamil, commentary of Muslim, Imaam Nawawi, vol. 1, pg. 128)
Islam strictly enforces the separation of sexes. All extra-marital
relationships are prohibited, including so called "friendship". Allah Ta'ala
has created the pure and wholesome institute of nikah to fulfill the natural
instincts which He has created in man and women.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.

Mufti E. Desai
