The Ruling on Shaving the Cheeks, and is it Allowed for a Man to Shave when He is Fasting?
Question:

Is it correct to shave the cheeks, while leaving the beard, and is it correct to shave while fasting, even if blood flows - whether from shaving the head, or the pubic area or other?
Answer:

It is not permissible to shave the cheeks, because they are a part of the beard, but it is permissible for a man to shave his head or his pubic area and the like in Ramadhan or any other time, even if blood flows. Indeed, shaving the pubic area is one of the Sunan of Al-Fitrah. And may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon our Prophet, Muhammad and upon his family and Companions (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam).
