Assalaamu 'Alaikum warahmatulla
I know that girls arn't allowed to do their eyebrows but some state that you are only allowed to do the middle which is line with the nose. Is this true? please let me know as it is a thing most common and if it is wrong then we shouldn't be doing it.

Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)

No, this will not be permissible. However, if the eyebrows have become so dense that it is unseemly for a woman and incites abhorrence in her husband, it is permissible to trim it to a more appropriate and normal size. (Ahsanul Fataawa Vol.8 pg.76; Zakariyya Book Depot)
