When shaving the sitr should you leave a fingers gap from your belly button and then shave or should you start from your belly button?


Shaving the A’naa (pubic hair) is part of nature and from the the sunnah of the Prophet of Allah (صلى الله عليه وآله وصحبه وسلم).

Ibn A’bideen (رحمة الله عليه) states: “the A’naa is the hair close to the genitals of a man or woman.” These hairs should be removed within forty days. The hair immediately below the navel is where he initiates from.

Allah knows best.
