Having a beard isn't Farj, shaving isn't harmful for your boady either. So it's completely your choice.
 
But I won't appreciate shaving as asked by employer, if I want to have my beard & feel good with it. I won't walk in for a type of job which is not suitable with beard either.

As Salamu Alaikum, nuoo1.Having a beard is'nt Fajir you mean.shaving is'nt harmful for your body.I chose not to because Prophet Muhammed(Saw) says:The beard is a sign a mans natural beauty.Sounds to me that shaving it is like one who whats to be like a woman.I never look at shaving as an option.Just wanted to know if any brothers have had this experience because their's a high percentage of us that have beard.

Wearing saris, ear and nose piercings, lipstick and nail colors are also not harmful for men's bodies. So are those also choice?

Give us a super break bro!

Yea, your Psychopathic reaction convinced me, you need a break. Given.
 
if you are ever normal, give me the relation between beard and all those items.
 
If you have some quaranic ref to sport a beard, do explain that.
 
If you want to know why some of the items you mentioned aren't alowed through Quranic ref, do ask, I will be more than happy to eliminate your misconceptions.
 
Islam isn't a faith to follow blindly, it's a religion of understanding & following. Try to understand each and everything that you do & believe in. Allah has given you all the resons for each and everything He ordered us to do. Except the elements of basic faith mentioned in 2:177
 
Don't have to make so animated reaction, that's also unislamic. Allah tells us to argue with logic and wisdom.

For Five prayers and their way to perfom and also how to do wudu is not written in Quran. Not every thing you can extract from Quran. Sunnah is living life that Allah choses. Some Sunnah ways are wajib and some are not wajib, like in morning Fajar prayer it is wajib sunnah to pray 2 rakat sunnah before Farad. See it is sunnah why we called it as "wajib" due to its importance. In the samway brother there are many other "wajib sunnah".

Walaikum Salam  Hello Akhe, it's been a while since I've talked with you. I realize it's somewhat different, but I've had prospective employers frown on my tattoos before. I've learned to cover them up for job interviews. I think anything outside the realm of what's expected is often frowned upon by prospective employers. Did someone actually straight-up ask you to shave your beard off ? If that's the case, that doesn't sound right.

Salam Bro,
 
It is there very clear in Al Quran, you just need to read Al-Quran to extract it.
 
However, I don't want to go into that discussion here, that's a different issue. Why don't you just ref a sahih Hadith, which says that having a beard is mandatory/Fard.
