|Husband and Wife Shaving Each Other|
|Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. Does Islam permit a husband to shave his wife's pubic hair and vice versa? Jazakum Allah khayran.|
Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.
Dear brother in Islam, we would like to thank you for the great confidence you place in us, and we implore Allah Almighty to help us serve His cause and render our work for His sake.
There is nothing wrong for a husband or wife, if they so wish, to shave each other’s pubic hair, for certainly they are allowed to see or touch such areas of their bodies which must remain covered from others. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Guard your private parts and do not expose them before anyone except your own spouse.”
