The Ruling on Dyeing the Beard Black

Question :
What is the ruling on dyeing the beard black, and what is the ruling on the one who does so?

Answer :
It is not permissible to dye white hair black, whether it is on the head or beard, because it has been confirmed by authentic Hadiths from the Prophet Peace Be Upon Him that he forbade it. But it is lawful to change it to a color than black, such as red or blonde, with henna and Katam mixed together, based upon the saying of the Prophet Peace Be Upon Him:
"Change this white hair, but avoid black."
Muslim no. 2102 and Abu Dawud no. 4204.
And his saying Peace Be Upon Him:
"Verily, the Jews and the Christians do not dye their hair, so be different from them."
Muslim no. 2103.
And Allah is the Granter of success.
Ibn Baz
