What does Islam say about hair in the nose?

Question: Sorry for my weird question, but what does sharia say anything about the hair in the nose? (Emil)


Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh!

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious to all in this world and in the next world only the Merciful to the believers.

Part of Islamic scholars believes that shortening (not shaving) nose hair desirable (mustahabb). Hair in the nose are a guarantee that the disease of leprosy and plucking together with the roots causes an itch.

The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: "Do not pluck the hair from the nose, truly this will cause the itch. Yet shorten them "(Daylami, Musnad Firdaus: № 7604, 5/43, Zuharul Firdaus: 4/181).

And Allah knows best.
