Q: Is waxing of hands haram (prohibited) while fasting?

Waxing is not Haraam while fasting, nor does it break the fast. However, if this is done for purposes of beauty in imitation of non-Muslims style, then it is not permissible whether one is fasting or not. Doing any sin while fasting is obviously a greater crime. In any case, the fast does not break.
