I can not grow a beard. The only places I can grow facial hair is a mustache, a little below my lower lip and on my chin. Lower lip and chin only grow a scraggly ugly bit of hair, therefor I shave it. (I let it grow for over a year once to see if it could be made to look differently, but it did not.
In a Hadith (posted somewhere in this thread) there is mention a Sahabi who the prophet would smile/laugh at due to his two strands of hair for the beard. (please read the Hadith as I'm not quoting word for word)
This Sahabi cut his beard and the prophet became upset. When the Sahabi inquired as to why he would laugh/smile at him, He said something to the effect that he would see angels swinging on those strands :)
Another thing to note is that each person is rewarded for his intentions. Regardless of how it looks, the reward will be there.
Also, its not Fard to grow a beard :). By that I mean there are certain men who can't grow facial hair and that's not their fault. Therefore, how can it be fard? At the same time, it's not permitted to shave the beard. So in such circumstances, yes, growing the beard and shortening the mustache is Wajib (mandatory)
Hmm, the reward of 100 martyr or to be laughed at temporarily :)
People are laughed at for their deformations or unfortunate circumstances but their reward is with the maker and the maker will reward so highly that those people will have wished for worse had they known what Allah had in store for them.
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
