Plucking The Eyebrows


I would like to know if neatening/plucking the eyebrows are haraam? 


If a few strands of hair of the eyebrows are extremely long, causing obstruction to vision or creating discomfort to the eyes (due to protruding into the eyes) and require some trimming, there is no harm in doing so. In cases other than these, one will not be permitted to trim and shape the eyebrows (as this is interfering with the natural characteristics with which Allah Ta’aala has created one.)
