Question: Is plucking the facial hair, not including the eyebrows, forbidden?
Answer: Yes, it is haram. Plucking the facial hair is from the plucking which the Prophet cursed its doer, Peace be upon him and his family and him. It is a major sin, whether it is the eyebrows or on the cheeks or otherwise.
