sorry for not elaborating.

1) Safety

A young man, boy, with long hair but no beard and whose body still hasn't matured fully looks attractive. But not in a masculine way. This appearance attracts predators, some of whom are in our madaris and masajid, in our ijtemas, conferences and itikafs.

2) Niyyah

Most young boys who grow long hair do so with the intention of looking attractive rather than to follow the sunnah even though that's what they say. Most of the guys who had long hair when I was younger have since cut it off and grown "faux-hawks".

Kanzoor bhai, could you tell me if I am allowed to grow a zulfa because: I have a small beard groing on my chin, and my intention is for the sunnah, so is it permisable for me?

Although I have let this conversation continue for educational benefit, I would recommend as before to ask your local Imam as he will be able to answer you more correctly since he can physically see you.

I hope you guys don't mind and a huge Jazakallah to kanzoor bhai for benefiting us with his input.

Forgive me for not replying earlier brother te. I am not a scholar and I do know you. It's better to do as brother abu mohammed advised and ask an Alim you know.

1. Wafarah- long hair which are half way through the ears.
2. Limmah- those which go below the earlobes.
3. Jummah- those which go close to the Shoulders.

The braids are used by some mujahideen in jihad to keep their hair under control. Such as ths shaheed Amir Khattab. He had his hair braided as can be seen in some pictures of him.
