Plucking/Shaping eyebrows in Islam.



I have a question regarding eyebrow plucking. In general its haram proven by sahih hadith. But i want to know is there any exception for those women who have intense bushy eyebrows that look like manly eyebrows???
Is there any permission to make eyebrows normal in shape? Not for beautifying or shaping extremely.
If husband is not happy with this intense manly eyebrows & feels unattractive, what should the women do then? Is it permissible for her to pluck/cut some of eyebrows to make it normal.


Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah!

It is not permissible to remove the hair of the eyebrows for beautifying or shaping because it is Haram by Sahi hadith as you said.this is the plucking for which the Messenger of Allaah cursed those who do it, and it is a kind of changing the creation of Allah. (Bukhari Shareef:4886)

Dear sister, do not forget that Allaah is Wise in whatever He decrees for His slaves.Some people are beautiful in appearance and some are not; that’s just how it is and the entire matter is entirely in the hand of Allaah. Therefore, it is essential that you be patient and seek reward with Allaah, and not transgress His sacred limits for the sake of your looks.

Listen very carefully,
Yes, if trully some excess hair grow around the eyebrows which make it ugly then it is allowable to remove that extra hair, not for beautifying. (Ahsanul Fatwa, vol. 8, p. 76).
