If Allahs want you to trim/shave the beard, why he(creator) had given a beard that grows.

One incident happened in India..
A young man was working as a labor in a steel shop. He was financially weak, but had beard and was pious. His uncle was in UK, he thought that he would give his daughter to his sister's son in India. The UK girl asked him to shave the beard; he denied and eventually the proposal was closed. Both got married to different persons of their choice.
In very small period of time, the poor man became rich & the UK girl became poor. She married a guy of her choice, he was a drunkard and that led to the mishap. Now the bearded man is helping his uncle's daughter.

I would like to share some ideology of the majority of my community people.
First, they usually start either discouraging the keeping of a beard or say trim it (less than a fist length so that it looks 'good')
Then when they see their argument is not having an effect, they give up overall, but still try sometimes.
However then it is, Allah Ta'ala who grants honor to His bearded servants, firm in following the wajib sunnah of Hazrat Muhammad (Salallahu 'alayhi wassalam), and the fasiqs come frequently and request the firm servant of Allah to make dua.

Strange ideology of most people....

Hence all brothers who have started keeping beards by the Grace of Allah Ta'ala, don't get discouraged, a Hadith, mafhoom(central idea); there is no obedience of the creation in the disobedience of Allah Ta'ala.

This logic is flawed. Allaah سبحانه وتعالى has given hair and nails also which grow constantly. Yet moustache should be trimmed, pubic hair should be shaved off and nails should be clipped.

That was a rhetorical question!

It's all about obedience, decency and handsomeness.

Can you Imagine?

Can you imagine how disgusted people had felt when they first saw men shaving their beards? Yet now its kind of the norm amongst the disbelievers and some believers.

Can you imagine if women started to grow beards (or wear fake ones), wouldn't that be digusting? Yet, in the future it would also be the norm!

Yuk.


From the beginning of time till the end of time, Allah's way and the Sunnah of all Anbiya (as) is "PERFECTION"

Yes, disgusting piece of filth!

This diarrhea was all over the newspapers. Looks like they want to start making it acceptable and normal.

Or we can say that we are not alone and Aliens have landed...YUK

This really is "Once Upon a Beard"



Peter the Great (1672-1725), Tsar of Russia, wanted to Westernize his nation. To do so, among other actions, he required the men of Russia to shave their beards in imitation of the highborn men of Western Europe. Or, alternatively, to pay a beard tax. Men who paid this tax were given a token as proof

www.beardtoken.com/about



In 1705, Emperor Peter I of Russia instituted a beard tax to modernize the society of Russia following European models. Those who paid the tax were required to carry a "beard token". This was a copper or silver token with a Russian Eagle on one side and on the other, the lower part of a face with nose, mouth, whiskers, and beard. It was inscribed with two phrases: "Money Taken" and the other side was old Cyrillic for the date, 1705, but certain folklore says that future versions of the token stated "the beard is a useless burden".

Didn't know that 'Dailymail' is observing the tweets of Syrian Mujahideen so desperately LOL...

''Abu Fulan al-Muhajir has been begging fellow
militants for advice on dealing with split ends
in his beard.


On Twitter he wrote: 'My beard's got split ends.
What to do?'


"Female jihad sympathisers were quick to offer
advice.
One of his 5,654 followers, Umm Ammar wrote:
'Not a beard expert but when we get split ends in
our hair we trim half an inch or so.
'They grow back quicker and stronger.'
Another advised to 'trim and oil it', while user Khadija told Mr al-Muhajir
to 'stop straightening
it'.



He appears to have contacted another rebel
fighter, Israfil Yilmaz, to ask where he could
buy hair conditoner.
Mr Yilmaz tweeted: 'That awkward moment
when somebody asks me if there is hair
conditioner available in Syria. Why is that even
important in a warzone?'
Mr al-Muhajir then replies: 'Sorry but I wanna
know. Some of us had gorgeous hair and needs
(sic) to take care of it.'
Twitter user Independist-R2D2 wrote: 'What do
you have against hair conditioners? Makes a
Sunnah beard feel luxurious.'


Note: Didn't post the link purposely cos it contains the images of women.

I'd been noticing how the beard has been growing in popularity. There is a new trend amongst the kuffar at the moment. So many young men have started growing full beards for fashion.

Have you guys noticed this trend.

I only bring it up because I read an article in the papers saying that the market for shaving products have dropped dramatically due to this new fashion. The losses have gone into their millions!

Good thing is we can tell if they are Muslim or not, although many have been shaving their moustache!
