Unwanted body hair

After how many days should we cut the unwanted hairs of our body?


It is not only permissible, but highly recommended that one pluck, cut, or shave his unwanted hair from the armpits and the pubic area. Removal of unwanted hair is a natural orfitrah Sunnah; and it is recorded that the Messenger (saws) and his noble companions removed their unwanted hair regularly.

Narrated Abu Huraira : I heard the Prophet saying. "Five practices are characteristics of the Fitra: circumcision, shaving the pubic hair, cutting the moustaches short, clipping the nails, and depilating the hair of the armpits." SAHIH AL-BUKHARI[Book 7 :: Volume 72 :: Hadith 779]

Yahya related to me from Malik from Said ibn Abi Said al-Maqburi from his father that Abu Hurayra said, "There are five things from the fitra: cutting the nails, trimming the moustache, removing the hair from the armpit, shaving the pubic region and circumcision." MALIK MUWATTA[Book 49 : Hadith 49.3.3]

There is no specific number of days specified by the Messenger of Allah (saws) for the removal of unwanted hair, but some of the companions have said that they used to remove their unwanted hair in a maximum period of every 40 days. And Allah knows the best.
