Mocking the Beard is a Great Sin


Question :
What is the ruling on praying behind a person who shaves his beard and even makes fun of those who let it grow, and he orders them to shave it?

Answer :
All praise is for Allah alone, and may He send peace and blessings upon His Messenger, His Messenger's family, and His Messenger's Companions.
It is not allowed to make fun of a person who grows his beard, because growing it is only obedience to the order of Allah's Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم). You should advise the mocker, explaining to him that by making fun of the beard, he may not only be committing a major sin but he also may be committing an act of apostasy. Allah Almighty says:
Say: Was it at Allah Almighty, and His Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations etc.) and His Messenger that you were mocking? Make no excuse; you have disbelieved after you had believed.
"Say: Was it at Allah Almighty, and His Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations etc.) and His Messenger that you were mocking? Make no excuse; you have disbelieved after you had believed."
At-Taubah 9:65,66.
And Allah is the Granter of success. May Allah send peace and blessings upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and his Companions.
