Plucking facial hair

Reference: Fataawa Noor ‘alad-Darb – Volume 11, Page 14, Question No.5540

Question: Is plucking hair from the face without [plucking] the eyebrows impermissible?

Response: Yes, it is impermissible. Plucking facial hair is considered to be from an-nams [النمص – which refers to plucking the eyebrows], and the Prophet ﷺ cursed the one who does so; and it is considered from the major sins – whether or not it is from the eyebrows, the cheeks or other than that.
