the side note was just for fun... what i mean is, where does chest shaving get controversial ... i dont get it.
Ali Iqbal | 12 years ago
it always was. even the name-sake muslims avoid it.
Muhammad Faizan Chaki | 12 years ago
so if my frend chanda does it.. it means he aint even a namesake muslim :/
how when where why... is it so.. isnt it the case that you are porbably mixing cultural bias with religion... just a thought!
think about it.

The Prophet Sallallahu Alayihi Wassallam was very hairy, very much, and it is in hadith, in book of bathing in bukhari. This is not a cultural thing, people today do not shave those parts which are to be shaved, but shave those which they should not.

so this means, not shaving chest is good.. the thing is, is shaving it bad!
the prophet didnt use threading to smooth his hairline above his forehead, yet the scholars dont mind it!

the way i see islam, anything not prohibited, either explicitly or implicitly, is fine. shaving chest is not prohibited explicitly... my query would be, is there any implicit reference to its prohibition anywhere.
