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

A:
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.
