Can women use razors to remove dirty hair i.e under their armpits?


In his encyclopaedic work in the Hanafi Madhab, Bahare Shariat, Al-Imam Amjad Ali al-A’zhami (رحمة الله عليه) has mentioned concerning the removal of this hair:

“It is Sunnah to pluck the hair of the underarms and shaving it is allowed too.”

[Bahare Shari’at vol 3 pg 585]

Allah knows best.
