Not sure if I cut all unwanted hair

Fatwaa ID: 1762

Assalamualaikum. I was wondering: while cutting underarm hair /pubic hair, what if we are not 100% sure if I got/cut all the hairs. But I think I did.

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

One should not entertain unfounded doubts. Remove the unwanted hair to the best of your abilities and regard it done. You may use easier methods such as trimmers and hair removal creams to ensure that you have appropriately removed the unwanted hair.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
