Below is the comment to:
What Islam says About the Beard
From The Shari Length of the Beard by Mufti Afzal Elias, May Allah reward him abundantly, aameen.
Transferred to the web for the benefit of all Muslims by Islam.tc


Quote:
The Blessed Beard... Grow it, what's so hard to understand?
Commentary by Islam.tc

Muslims are overcome with western influence in their lives and it's easy to forget, nay, neglect the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him). Little do these Muslims realize the magnitude of their actions in imitating Kufaar (see Hadith section). This is a truly shocking! Hopefully the information presented herein will enlighten those. And then there are others who claim that the matters concerning beards is a "little" issue not worthy of mention nor practice. To them I say get off the denial bandwagon, you're a Muslim! Follow the Prophet (Peace be upon him) in all aspects of life, for he was the best of examples. I couldn't tell you how many times I've mistaken a Muslim brother (outside of the Masjid) for a kaafir on account of his clean-shaven, well oiled, face. How can I say "Assalaamu Alaikum Brother!" when I do not know if he is a Muslim. Yet that very brother then wonders why he was ignored! Sure, he can tell if others are Muslim on account of their beard, but what about himself? From one brother to another, I say: "Grow a beard, then, since it also promotes Brotherhood in the real world. Stand with your Brothers, be one. We know you think you are handsome without it (a beard), but who cares? What matters is how Allah (S.W.T.) sees you. And when you do grow a beard, don't mock the Sunnah, please grow it correctly, i.e. FIST LENGTH. That is the prescribed length and no shorter (see Hadeeth section)..." Peace.

Allah says

Quote:
"O ye who believe! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority among you." (Quran 4:59)

"O ye who believe! Obey Allah and His Messenger, and turn not away from him when ye hear (him speak)." (Quran 8:20)

"O ye who believe! give your response to Allah and His Messenger, when He calleth you to that which will give you life; and know that Allah cometh in between a man and his heart, and that it is He to Whom ye shall (all) be gathered."(Quran 8:24)

"Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah an excellent exempler for him who hopes in Allah and the Final Day, and who remembers Allah." (Quran 33:21)

"What Allah has bestowed on His Messenger (and taken away) from the people of the townships,- belongs to Allah,- to His Messenger and to kindred and orphans, the needy and the wayfarer; in order that it may not (merely) make a circuit between the wealthy among you. So take what the Messenger gives you, and refrain from what he prohibits you. And fear Allah: for Allah is strict in Punishment." (Quran 59:7)

The Companions tell us what the Prophet SAW says:

Quote:
Importance of the Beard in the words of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam):

(1) Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said "I have no connection iwth one who shaves, shouts and tears his clothing eg. in grief or affication."
- Reported by Abu Darda (R.A.) in Muslim, Hadith no. 501

(2) The teachings of Hadhrat Ammar Bin Yaasir, Abdullah Ibn Umar, Sayyidina Umar, Abu Hurairah and Jaabir (R.A.), indicate that ALL used to keep beards that were one fist length or more. Hadhrat Jaabir (R.A.) had said: "We used to grow long beards and only during Hajj and Umrah did we trim them to the required length (i.e. fist length)."

(3) Hadhrat Abdullah Ibn Umar (R.A.) relates that: "He who imitates the kuffar (non-believers) and dies in that state, he will be raised up with them on the Day of Qiyamat (Judgement)."

(4) Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) says: "Trim closely the moustache, and let the beard flow (Grow)."
- Narrated Ibn Umar (R.A.) in Muslim, Hadith no. 498

(5) "Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) ordered us to trim the moustache closely and spare the beard" says Ibn Umar.
- Muslim, Hadith no. 449

(6) Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)said: "Act against contrary to the polythesists, trim closely the moustache and grow the beard."
- Reported by Ibn Umar (R.A.) in Muslim, Hadith no. 500

(7) Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said "Trim closely the moustache and grow the beard."
- Reported by Abu Hurairah (R.A.) in Muslim, Hadith no. 501

(8) Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: "Anyone who shaves has no claim to the mercy of Allah"
- Reported by Ibn Abbas (R.A.) in Tibrabi

(9) Hadhrat Abdullah Ibn Umar (R.A.) used to cut that portion (which exceeds the grip of the hand) of the beard.
- Tirmidhi

The Imams say:

Quote:
The Beard according to the Great Imams of Jurisprudence

Hanafi

Imam Muhammed (R.A.) writes in his book "Kitabul Aathaar" where he relates from Imam Abu Hanifa (R.A.) who relates from Hadhrat Haytham (R.A.) who relates from Ibn Umar (R.A.) that he (Ibn Umar) used to hold his beard in his hand and cut off which was longer. Imam Muhammed (R.A.) says that this is what we follow and this was the decision of Imam Abu Hanifa. Therefore, according to Hanafies, to shorten the beard less than a FIST LENGTH is HARAAM and on this is IJMA (concensus of opinion).

Shafi'i

Imam Shafi (R.A.) in his Kitabul Umm states, "To shave the beard is HARAAM." (Shari Minhaj dar Shara Fasl Aqueeqa).

Maaliki

Shekh Ahmad Nafarawi Maliki in the commentary of Imam Abu Zayed's booklet states, "to shave the beard is without doubt haraam according to all Imams." It is also mention in "Tamheed" which is a commentary of "Muatta" (Sunnan Imam Malik (R.A.)) that to shave the beard is HARAAM and among males the only ones to resort to this practice (of shaving) are the HERMAPHRODITES (persons who possess both male and female features and characteristics).

Hanbali

The Hanbalies in the famous Al-Khanie'a Hanbali Fatawa Kitab state that "to grow the beard is essential and to shave it is HARAAM." Also in the Hanbali Mathab books "Sharahul Muntahaa" and "Sharr Manzoomatul Aadaab", it is stated "The most accepted view is that it is HARAAM (prohibited to shave the beard)."

Also note, according to scholars of Islam: "To shave off the beard is unlawful (haraam) and one who shaves his beard is legally speaking an unrighteous fellow (FASIQ); hence, it is NOT PERMISSIBLE to appoint such a man as an Imam. To say Taraweeh behind such an Imam is MAKRUH-E-TAHRIMI (near prohibition)" (Shami Vol.1, p.523)

The Durre-Mukhtar states: "No one has called it permissible to trim it (the beard) less than FIST-LENGTH as is being done by some westernized Muslims and hermaphrodites." (Vol. 2, p. 155). Also, "It is forbidden (haraam) for a man to cut off another's beard." (Vol. 5, p. 359).

my five year old daughter asked me when she could be in Jannah.

She then asked me if she would be able to see me there. So I told her to make Dua for me that Allah give us all Jannah.

Her next question was: Will Allah let you in Jannah (Due to my age, she thought only young people are allowed in Jannah together with children. So I told her that I wasnt old (realy) and that Allah will make everyone young again.

Guess what her next question was!

Will you have a beard?

My reply made her crack up. I told her that in Jannah there is no beard.

She couldnt stop laughing, she couldnt imagine me without a beard. Then she said, "Will I recognise you". SubhanAllah such thoughts and questions from little ones. Beautiful.


So when men are in jannah they don't have a beard?
even in Jannatul Firdous
Oh yeah today i learnt that in Jannah men and boys are handsome (no offence ladies we are pretty too) and ladies and girls are pretty and beautiful because it is from Allah(SWT)

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (radiallaahu 'anh) reports that the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) stated, "The people of jannah will be hairless, beardless, and black-eyed; their youth will not cease, nor will their clothes wear away." (at-Tirmidhi)

Hadhrat Mu'adh ibn Jabal (radiallaahu 'anh) reports that the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) stated, "The people of Jannah will enter it hairless, beardless, wearing antimony, aged thirty or thirty-three years." (at-Tirmidhi)

When the Ulamah of Taliban were visiting UK they were asked numerous times in UK as to why they are punishing men for not having FULL Sunnah beards when there is nothing in Sunnah or the Fiqh on this matter and they replied, "There is ludity in Afghan society and Ameerul-Mumineen Mullah Omar (HA) deems that by forcing a FULL BEARD such matters may be curtailed so the Hakim (i.e. Ameerul-Mumineen Mullah Omar (HA)) has authorised Qadhees to issue Ta'zeer punishments on the matter which is acceptable in the Shariah"

They further added, "Where there is explicit and Shariah compliant evidence of ludity and illicit contacts (i.e. homosexuality, sodomy) Hadd punishments are awarded and where there is insufficient evidence for Hadd but enough evidence then Ta'zeer is applied". Precisely what Mufti Taqi Usmani (HA) is saying and this is the stance of not only Hanafi Madhab but the entire Ummah and (ta'zeer) is used on a daily basis in Saudia, Afghanistan and wherever Allah (SWT) has blessed people to have Islamic Shariah.

So again "no punishment = No hadd" and doesn't mean that the perpetrators of these heinous acts WALK!

Perpetrators of these heinous acts can get fined, imprisoned, boycotted, exiled lashed, or in extreme cases EVEN KILLED!

Once upon a time, there were some kuffar who had invented shaving for men, they shall be cursed till doomsday.

And in this generation, they have invented an APP.

They call it the shave app. It's for real. The screen appears to have a stuble and you use the fingers to shave the hair off.

There's also an app for "beard styles". well its not for the Muslim's as we follow the Prophet (SAW) and not these kuffar who like to mock of everything.

What is this world coming to.

The Prophet (saw) will not intercede for those whose moustache is overlapping their upper lips.

The water we drink that touches the moustache as we drink it, becomes makrooh.

Even the kuffar are feeling the pain of shaving.

They've called it beardism. See news paper article about a guy who didn't get his job as a car hire man because he had a beard. From Thursdays Metro paper, London.

I just had read the news paper article and my goodness i was SHOCKED. Basically what ive understood was that the man cudnt receive the job because he has a beard which basically means of his look. Its like as if the late 1900s have arrived from america to the UK. (martin luther kings time). becuase in that time people cudnt do things because of their look and that is kinda similiar to beardism. That is really not fair.
