​If we grow the beard it will be difficult for us to find work in our country By : Shaykh Sulaymaan Ar-Ruhaylee



“May Allāh reward you with good and be good to you. He says: “If we grow the beard it will be difficult for us to find work in our country, so what is your advice?”
Shaykh Sulaymaan Ar-Ruhaylee, may Allāh preserve him:

“It is incorrect, it is not correct! Rather it is from the whisperings of the Shaytān. Why do I say not correct and I am certain about what I say? Because my Lord (Allāh), Glorified and Exalted is He, says:

{And whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him (has taqwā of Allāh), He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty). And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine.} [Sūrah At-Taghābun 65:2-3]

One of the Quranic transcribers, Yazeed al Faarisee, related that he saw the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) in a dream during the era of Ibn Abbas and informed him. Ibn Abbas said, “Allahs Messenger (pbuh) used to say, ‘ Satan is unable to imitate my form, so whoever dreamt that they saw me, actually saw me’. Can you describe the person that you saw?” Yazeed replied,

قَدْ مَلَأَتْ لِحْيَتُهُ مِنْ هَذِهِ إِلَى هَذِهِ حَتَّى كَادَتْ تَمْلَأُ نَحْرَهُ
His beard filled from here to here (from one cheek to another) and almost filled his neck (or lower part of the neck or upper part of the chest or above chest)” [Tabaqat Ibn e Sad 1/417, Ibn e Abi Shaybah 11/525, Musnad Ahmad 1/361-62, Musnad Abu Ya’ala, Shamail al Tirmidhi 393, Ibn e Asakir 1/229]

Shaykh-al- Albani On Issue of Length of the Beard

Shaykh al Albani RA concluded:

So, the authentic narrations contain that which is a proof for the permissibility of trimming the beard or taking from it, and that it was a well known practice amongst the Salaf. This is in opposition to what some of our brothers from Ahl al-Hadith think, those who are severe against allowing the trimming of the beard, clinging to the general saying of his “…and leave the beard!” without paying attention to the fact that what was understood from the general meaning was not intended due to the lack of the action of the Salaf upon this interpretation, and amongst them are those who reported the general hadithitself, and they are: ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar, and his hadith is in the two ‘Sahih’s; Abu Hurayrah, and his hadith is in ‘Sahih Muslim,’ and I have given the origins of both in ‘Jilbab al-Mar’ah al-Muslimah’ (p. 185-187); and Ibn ‘Abbas, and his hadith is in ‘Majma’ az-Zawa’id’ (5/169).


And from that in which there is no doubt is that the reporter of the hadith is the most knowledgeable about the intended meaning of it than those who did not hear it from the Prophet (peace be upon him), and he is the more enthusiastic in following it than them.

On Trimming What is in Excess of a Fistful from the Beard By || SHAIKH AL-ALBAANI

yelllow 4

Questioner: We’re aware that there are­­ detailed hadiths which have been reported concerning letting the beard flow, and what is apparent from them is that they are an order [to do so] and an obligation, and we know thehadith of ’Abdullah Ibn ’Umar [where it is stated], ‘… that when he would perform Hajj or ’Umrah he would trim some of his beard,’ so is this a proof for the permissibility of trimming the beard, whether that be more than a fistful or from either side?

Al-Albaani: This issue has no connection as to whether it is obligatory to let the beard flow or not, but rather as to whether it is allowed to trim the beard [in the first place] or not, correct?

Questioner: Yes.

Ruling on Commandment of Growing The Beard & shaving the beard

Shaving the beard is haraam because of the saheeh ahaadeeth that clearly state this, and because of the general application of texts that forbid resembling the kuffaar. One of these reports is the hadeeth of

Hadith of Abdullah Ibn Umar

1. Narrated Nafi’: Ibn Umar said, The Prophet said, ‘Do the opposite of what the pagans do. Keep the beards and cut the moustaches short.’ Whenever Ibn ‘Umar performed the Hajj or ‘Umra, he used to hold his beard with his hand and cut whatever moustaches. Ibn Umar used to cut his moustache so short that the whiteness of his skin (above the upper lip) was visible, and he used to cut (the hair) between his moustaches and his beard.  (Bukhari Book 72 Hadith 780)
