To Shave One's Beard


Question :
What is the ruling on shaving the beard?

Answer :
The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said,
Shorten your moustaches and grow your beards.
"Shorten your moustaches and grow your beards."
Ahmad 2/52.
And he included among the ten characteristics of the Fitrah: trimming the moustache and growing the beard. And the beard of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم), was thick. And Allah, the Most High says that Harun said:
0 son of my mother! Seize (me) not by my beard, nor by my head!
"0 son of my mother! Seize (me) not by my beard, nor by my head!"
Ta Ha 20:94.
The beard is the hair which grows on the jaws and the chin. The left and right (bottom) jaws are the places from which the lower teeth grow and the beard encompasses the left and right jaws, and since these authentic commands have been given, it is obligatory upon the Muslims to obey Allah. Obedience is not complete , unless it is full compliance, therefore whoever shaves his beard has disobeyed the words of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم)
Grow your beards...
"Grow your beards... "
Al-Bukhari no. 5893 and Muslim no. 259.
and:
Expand your beards...
"Expand your beards..."
and:
Let your beards...
"Let your beards..."
and:
Leave your beards...
"Leave your beards..."
So the shaver or the one who trims it has violated that obedience and committed an act of disobedience, therefore he must turn to Allah in repentance and remorse, and Allah turns in forgiveness to those who repent to Him. And Allah knows best.
Ibn Jibreen
