The Islamic Ruling on Shaving the Beard

 

By Br. Bilal Az-Zuhri

 

In the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Beneficent, peace and blessing be upon the Messenger of Allah and whoever follows his path.

When discussing the Islamic ruling on shaving beards, perhaps it is important to note that shaving the beard is a tradition, which has been imported to the Muslim world as a result of the Western occupation to the Muslim countries, following World War One. These were the days when non-Muslim ideologies began to spread in our societies. Such ideologies resulted in the widespread of un-Islamic traditions amongst the Muslim Ummah. Therefore, such practices have no relation whatsoever with the Islamic Law, nor with the Arabic or even the Eastern culture.

According to the Arabic language terminology, a beard is the hair that grows on the cheeks and on the chin. The same definition applies in the Islamic terminology.

The sayings of Scholars

The majority of scholars have agreed that shaving the beard is forbidden in Islam, and that growing it is Wajib (mandatory). There are disagreements, however, on whether it can be shortened. With Allah's Will, we will firstly mention the scholars' sayings with regards to shaving the beard, then state the Islamic proofs for the prohibition of shaving it, as well as the proofs for and against shortening it.

The Opinions of the Four Schools of Thought

The Hanafis: They say that it is forbidden for a man to shave his beard, and they have instructed shaving any excessive hair over a handful; cutting anything from what is less than a handful is not allowed.

The Malikies: They ruled on the prohibition of shaving the beard, as well as shortening it if this would result in any disfigurement. If cutting parts of it when it gets too long would not result in any disfigurement, then it is allowed. However, some said that this would be Makrooh (undesirable).

The Shafi'is: They said that shaving the beard is Makrooh (undesirable), although Ibn Al-Rif'ah opposed this ruling, and said that Imam Ash-Shafi'i has stated in his book "Al-Umm" that this is Haram, not just Makrooh. Al-Athra'iy said that the correct opinion amongst the Shafi'is is that shaving it is Haram, unless it had defects.

The Hanbalis: They ruled that shaving the beard is forbidden. No disagreement about this has been reported in the Hanbali school of thought, as stated in "Al-Insaf".

[The above narrations were mentioned by Sheikh Ali Mahfooz, in his book Al-Ibdaa', page 410].

Imam Ibn Hazm said: "And they (scholars) have agreed that shaving the beard is a disfigurement, and is not allowed". [Al-Muhallah, 2/189] Sheikhul-Islam Ibn Taimiyah also stated that: "Shaving the beard is forbidden". [Al-Ikhtiyarat Al-Ilmiyyah, page 6]. Ibn Abdul-Barr stated in his book "At-Tamheed" that shaving the beard is Haram and that it is only done by the effeminate (those who imitate women).

Many of the recent scholars have also ruled on the prohibition of shaving the beard and the necessity of growing it. Among these scholars are: Sheikh Al-Albany in his book "Adaab Az-Zafaf", and his students, Sheikh Ali Mahfooz in his book "Al-Ibdaa'", Sayid Sabiq in his book "Fiqhus-Sunnah", Mahmoud Al-Istanbuli in his book "Tuhfatul Arous", Al-Qaradawi in his book "The Lawful and Prohibited in Islam", Sheikh Ismail Al-Ansari as well as all the scholars of the Arabian Peninsula who clearly ruled and explained the prohibition of shaving the beard in their books and lectures. And if we were to state the opinions of the different scholars in this matter, the whole issue of this magazine will not be sufficient, although we believe that the above should be sufficient for those who are sincere in looking for the truth.

Proofs for Prohibition

* Shaving the beard involves altering the creation of Allah, which is forbidden as stated in the Qur'an: "Allah cursed him. And he (Shaytaan) said: 'I will take an appointed portion of your slaves. Verily, I will mislead them, and surely I will arouse in them false desires; and certainly I will order them to slit the ears of cattle, and indeed I will order them to change the nature created by Allah.' And whoever takes Shaytaan as a Wali (protector or helper) instead of Allah, has surely suffered a manifest loss" [4: 118-119]. Sheikh Al-Albany said regarding this verse that it is "a clear statement that changing Allah's creation without His permission is obeying Shaytaan, and that there is no doubt that shaving the beard for beauty reasons comes under the rule of this verse" [Adabul-Zafaf, PP 119-120]. There are also numerous verses which command Muslims to follow the tradition of the Prophet (s.a.w) as Allah (s.w.t) says: "And whatsoever the Messenger gives you, take it, and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it)" [59: 7].

* Shaving the beard involves disobeying the order of the Prophet (s.a.w) who commanded us to grow our beards, as he (s.a.w) said "contradict the non-believers, grow the beards and cut the moustaches" [Bukhari and Muslim]. Ibn Jarir have also narrated to the story of the two messengers of Kisra (the Persian king) to the Prophet, who entered to where the Prophet (s.a.w) was, and they had shaved their beards and grown their moustaches, the Prophet (s.a.w) hated to even look at them and told them: "Woe to you! Who ordered you to do that?" They replied: "Our lord (i.e. Kisra) ordered us". The Prophet then said: "But my Lord ordered me to grow my beard and clip my moustache". Here we see that the Prophet (s.a.w) hated to even look at the unbelievers, so how would his reaction be had he seen those who claim to be his loyal followers imitating the unbelievers and shaving their beards? Also, it is important to note that the Prophet (s.a.w) attributed the order of growing the beard and clipping the moustache to Allah (s.w.t), so it becomes an order from Allah (s.w.t) to the believers, which makes it mandatory on the believers to follow, and forbidden to disobey.

* Shaving the beard is a way of imitating the disbelievers, as mentioned at the beginning of the article, and the Prophet of Allah has commanded us in numerous hadiths to contradict the people of the book (Jews and Christians) and to contradict the pagans and Magus. So since shaving the beard is a tradition practiced by non-Muslims, it makes it mandatory for the Muslims to contradict them by growing it.

* The imitation of women, and there is no doubt that shaving the beard is an imitation of women, and Imam Ibn Hajar Al-Haythamy n his book "Az-Zawajir" stated that such imitation is amongst the Major Sins in Islam.

* Contradicting the traditions of the Prophets and righteous men. Imam Al-Shanqiti said in his commentary on the verse "He (Harun) said: O son of my mother! Seize (me) not by my beard, nor by my head" [20: 94], that it is a Qur'anic proof that growing the beard is the tradition of the Prophets of Allah.

* Finally, shaving the beard is a contradiction of the Fitrah (nature) which was intended for us by Allah, since growing the beard is one of the ten natural instincts as maintained by the Prophet (s.a.w). The fact that Arabs before Islam used to grow their beards can be explained by the fact that they inherited it from the Prophet Ibrahim (a.s).

Shortening the Beard

The scholars have disagreed on the ruling with regards to shortening the beard, whether in length or width.

Imam At-Tabari said: "Some scholars have taken the hadith literally and considered it undesirable to cut anything from the beard, either in length or width, while others said that the excessive hair can be removed if it was more than a handful" [Fathul-Bari, 10/350]. He then related some narrations stating that the Companions (r.a.a) used to remove the excessive hair over a handful during Hajj and Umrah. He also related narrations that did not restrict this to Hajj and Umrah. Amongst these Companions is Omar, and his son Abdullah, Abu Hurairah (r.a.a), as well as a group of the Tabi'een.

Amongst the scholars who issued verdicts allowing to cut the hair in excessive of a handful, is Imam Hassan Al-Basri, Ataa' and At-Tabari. The Judge 'Eyaadh went further to say that it is undesirable to exaggerate in its size, just as it is undesirable to cut it short. And this is the opinion of some of the recent scholars. As for tracing it to the extent of shaving, as some do, this action is not allowed, and no one from amongst the accountable scholars, whether recent or ancient, mentioned the permissibility of such a thing.

Shaving the Moustache

Shaving the whole moustache is considered Makrooh (undesirable) by all scholars, because the Prophet (s.a.w) mentioned shortening the moustache in his hadith, and not completely shaving it. When Imam Malik was asked about the person who completely shaves his moustache, he said that he sees that he should be beaten up, he also said that this is an innovation that appeared between people. [Narrated by Al-Bayhaqi, also mentioned in Fath Al-Bari, 10/347].

An Important note

Finally, we would like to touch up on one important issue which is widely misunderstood by our youth, and that is shaving the hair of the head completely, which is thought to be an act of Sunnah by many Muslims, relating to the Hadith by the Prophet (s.a.w) "Shave it all or leave it all". The purpose from this hadith is to forbid Qaza' (under cuts), that is shaving a part of the head and leaving another part. So this hadith is ordering Muslims to cut their hair in equal lengths, not to shave it completely.

Those were some points, which we wanted to illustrate, hoping that these words would benefit our readers who sincerely seek to know the ruling of Islam.

Now what if you work and you haver to shave? I admite I cannot keep a beard and from my understanding a goatee is sufficient and the minimum requirement. However I cannot keep a goatee either as my job does not allow it how do the scholars comment on this?

Actually, if it is a religious mandate, your company has to allow you to keep a beard, in the USA.

Not really..... Of course there are laws which state that if the growing of a beard or the covering of a head is a religious duty then it is permissible, but various companies have varying policies. Most likely if I were to fight this then I'd be fighting a losing battle. Prior to employment we have to sign contracts which we (employees) firmly agree to company policy.

I might agree with this but if it is due to religion, the comany would allow you to do this if it is mandatory Religiously. At least ask, unless, you do not want to have a beard.

Good day everyone.

I've always wondered about the above quoted hadith

"contradict the non-believers, grow the beards and cut the moustaches"

Can someone find the Arabic version with full isnad? Who are the non-believers that the Prophet is referring to? Didn't Jews as well as pagan Arabs have beards too?

Hi everyone,

This is a very important subject for me which I hope will be solved by some1 as soon as possible.

I used to have a beard. And I grew it long. Now, it happened that i suddenly got an opportunity to go abroad from my home. Now I had to get a passport. I thought that it would be difficult to get a VISA to say USA or UK with the photo with the beard. So regretfully I shaved it. Now I know that I committed a sin. Now, a neighbour of mine one day came up to me and started giving me a lecture saying the beard is a holy thing and shaving it is a huge sin. But the fact is that he has never grown his beard, he shaves regularly. I said shaving regularly and shaving after growing a beard may be the same thing. Emphasis on may be. I said I wasn't sure about it. But he said he was sure that it is not the same thing. And said mine was the bigger sin. Now, can someone shed light on this matter. And the fact that he said he was sure about something he may not have been and let's assume that he was lying just to get ahead in this arguement. How big a sin is it to lie about matters of religion i would also like to know that. I'll be looking forward to the solution of this problem. Thanks.

I will not believe it until someone provides with a verse in the Glorious

I got a few questions....

Am I to understand that we can only shave our mustaches? We cannot cut our hair when it gets too long, or trim the beard when it gets too long?

Also, our Prophet (SAW) said to shave the hair on our bodies, including the pubic hair. Why is this not considered disfigurement? Is this practice mandatory or Sunnah?

What about the hair on our heads?

Please someone answer me ASAP.

Yes, May be it's good to have one, but never mandatory. Quran does not make it mandatory. So none has the right & authority from Allah to make it mandatory.

Assalamu alaikum

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala says in Holy Quran, 'Say: (O Muhammad) If you love Allah, then follow me, Allah will love you and forgive you your faults, and Allah is Forgiving, MercifuL 3:31

Now it is Sahih Bukhari, 'Volume 1, Book 12, Number 713:

Narrated Abu Ma'mar:

We asked Khabbab whether Allah's Apostle used to recite (the Qur'an) in the Zuhr and the 'Asr prayers. He replied in the affirmative. We said, "How did you come to know about it?" He said, "By the movement of his beard."

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala left the choice for you.

Your conclusion on beard is perfect. But I couldnt understand the Sahih Hadith:

Quran Says:

"You shall recite what is revealed to you of the Scripture (the Quran), and observe the Salat." 29:45

 There are many other verses, saying us to recite and confirming that the prophet obeyed all the orders Allah gave and he didnt do anything else other than Quran.

By reading quran anyone can be sure that the prophet always recited from Quran in the salat. Does it mean that Abu Ma'mar didnt read or understand Quran? The answer is equally funny, the movement of beard can mean reading anything, how it can mean Quran? Doesn't it make us think of the basis of hadith how weak and baseless it is?

The verses or Quran is enough to prove what the prophet did.

***MOD EDIT***

Nu...please do not post your deviated ideas in any forum except in intrafaith section. This forum respects and adheres to quran AND sunnah. (read guidelines). You are welcome to discuss other issues here but you will not be allowed to treat hadith in this manner in other forums. Thank You.

Bismillah irrahman irrahim

Assalamu alaykum

Brother by quoting the Ayah, you have made things very easy for me, JazakAllah khair. We all know that recitation in salah should be from Holy Quran and if we know then the Messenger (sallallahu alayhi wassalam) who broght the message surley was crystal clear about this fact. Thing is sahabah (ra) never had a twisted mind to be giving clarification of such minute things and they dint know that ummah is going to so self obsessed that they are going to cause fitnah on each little detail.

I am sorry if i sound harsh but this is what we have become, where ever it does not suite our desire to follow the sunnah we raise questions about its credibility. The whole point of mentioning this hadith was to show that Sayyidina Muhammad sallallahu alhyi wassalam had a beard. And coming up with an excuse of 'who knows what he was reciting', i cant even believe that some1 would come up with that.

Sorry for going off the topic but this had to be settled.

wassalam

Firstly, Sorry if my last post did hurt anyone. Sister Fatima or any bro/sis; if you have an answer please answer me and help me to understand truth, in this intrafaith link:

http://www.islamicity.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=8793&PN=1 - http://www.islamicity.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=8793& ;PN=1  

Quran Says:

"You shall recite what is revealed to you of the Scripture (the Quran), and observe the Salat." 29:45

 

And do not recite [too] loudly in your prayer or [too] quietly but seek between that an [intermediate] way. 17:110

 

 

The hadith you Quoted above refers to a companion of the prophet. We expect a companion to have said prayer with the prophet and he is supposed to hear him reciting, according to the instruction of the Quran. The sahaba is supposed to know the instruction of Quran. Sahabas were also taught by the prophet how to say prayer according to the Quran.

 

So why one have to believe that a sahaba had to depend on the beard movement of the prophet to know what he had to recite in the prayer??

 

So either you believe that man (Whoever described the hadith, not Sahaba) or you believe Allah that the prophet and his companion followed the Quran.

 

I prefer to believe Allah who confirms that the prophet did everything whatever was told to him in Quran.

 

I am not disregarding the Quran, Prophet or the Companion. Just can't agree with the person who described the hadith & to my understanding wrongly reffered to the Sahaba. Coz if I believe that man; it will mean disregarding the Quran, Prophet and the Companion.

 

My apologies once again and would expect your reasons for not agreeing with me in the Intrafaith link above. Please help me, I want to correct myself if I am going wrong anywhere.

Sahih Bukhari:

Volume 7, Book 72, Number 780:

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.

Volume 7, Book 72, Number 781:

Narrated Ibn 'Umar:

Allah's Apostle said, "Cut the moustaches short and leave the beard (as it is)."

Volume 9, Book 93, Number 651:

Narrated Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri:

The Prophet said, "There will emerge from the East some people who will recite the Qur'an but it will not exceed their throats and who will go out of (renounce) the religion (Islam) as an arrow passes through the game, and they will never come back to it unless the arrow, comes back to the middle of the bow (by itself) (i.e., impossible). The people asked, "What will their signs be?" He said, "Their sign will be the habit of shaving (of their beards). (Fateh Al-Bari, Page 322, Vol. 17th)

Sahih Muslim:

Book 002, Number 0498:

Ibn Umar said: The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Trim closely the moustache, and let the beard grow.

 

Book 002, Number 0499:

Ibn Umar said: The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) ordered us to trim the moustache closely and spare the beard.

 

Book 002, Number 0500:

Ibn Umar said: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be opon him) said: Act against the polytheists, trim closely the moustache and grow beard.

 

Book 002, Number 0501:

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Trim closely the moustache, and grow beard, and thus act against the fire-worshippers.

 

Book 002, Number 0502:

'A'isha reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be npon him) said: Ten are the acts according to fitra: clipping the moustache, letting the beard grow, using the tooth-stick, snuffing water in the nose, cutting the nails, washing the finger joints, plucking the hair under the armpits, shaving the pubes and cleaning one's private parts with water. The narrator said: I have forgotten the tenth, but it may have been rinsing the mouth.

Growing the beard is mandatory no question about it so grow your beards brothers and wear the sign of the believers follow the sunnah like your life depended on it there is really no excuse not to,,Asalamu alaikum wa Rhmattullahi wa Barakatu

"It is not fitting for a Believer, man or woman, when a matter has been decided by Allah and His Messenger to have any option about their decision: if any one disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he is indeed on a clearly wrong Path." Surah 33,Ayah36

"We sent not an apostle, but to be obeyed, in accordance with the will of Allah. If they had only, when they were unjust to themselves, come unto thee and asked Allah.s forgiveness, and the Messenger had asked forgiveness for them, they would have found Allah indeed Oft-returning, Most Merciful.But no, by the Lord, they can have no (real) Faith, until they make thee(Muhammad
(SAWS)) judge in all disputes between them, and find in their souls no resistance against Thy decisions, but accept them with the fullest conviction
."
Surah 4, Ayat 64-65

Excuse me kind brother, but you are telling me that the rulings of the Four Imams(Allah of mercy upon them) is "bs"?  You should reconsider. Could you offer your proof in support of "it is an optional extra virtue"? Multiple Proofs for the beard have been offered. Produce yours. I pray this isnt just your opinion!

What makes you a Muslim is fulfilling the Mandatory obligations!  Rasullah(SAWS) commanded to grow the beard, and Allah commands to obey His Messenger(SAWS)!

"Say: "obey Allah and His Messenger.: But if they turn back, Allah loveth not those who reject Faith." Surah 3,Ayah 32

"He who obeys the Messenger, obeys Allah. But if any turn away, We have not sent thee to watch over their (evil deeds). " 
Surah 4, Ayah 80
