Quraan & Hadith

THE SUNNAT OF RASULULLAH SALLALLAHU ALAYHI WASALLAM REGARDING THE BEARD

The status of the beard

Sayyidah Aayesha Radiallahu Anha narrates that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said:  

'Ten things are part of Fitrat, i.e. the natural way and the tradition of all the Ambiya of Allah. Among these are trimming the moustache and lengthening the beard.'—Sahih Muslim, Vol. 1, Page 129

Note: The word Fitrat refers to the practices of the Ambiya Alayhimus Salam. The word Fitrat also refers to Islam, [which means that it is part of Islam to adhere to these practices]. —Fath al-Baari, Vol. 10, Page 339  

Ibn Umar Radiallahu Anhu narrates that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said:  

'Oppose the disbelievers; lengthen the beard and trim the moustache very short.' —Sahih Bukhari, Vol. 2, Page 87

Note: The Ambiya kept long beards and none of them shaved it. The scholars of Islam unanimously regard the growing of a beard wajib. — Hidayah, Vol 4, Page 571  

The verdict of the Imams  

Ibn Hazam writes: ‘It is obligatory to trim the moustache and lengthen the beard.'—Al-Muhalla, Vol 2, Page 320  

Allamah Shawkani writes that the Persians had the habit of trimming the beard. Islam prohibits us from this practice and commands us to lengthen the beard. — Nayl al-Awtar, Vol 1, Page 116  

The Hambali school of thought also declares it Haraam to trim and shave the beard. This verdict is recorded in al-Iqnaa'.  

Imam Shafi'ii also expresses the same view in al-Umm. He writes: 'Shaving the beard is Haraam according to the leading scholars of the Muslim ummah and according to Imam Abu Hanifah, Imam Malik and Imam Ahmad.'

Arranging one's beard whilst looking into a mirror   

Sayyidah Aayesha Radiallahu Anha narrates that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam used to look into a mirror when combing his blessed beard. —Majma, Vol 5, Page 174/Fath aUBaari, Vol 10, Page 167

PRAYER IN CONGREGATION IS ONE OF THE SUNNAH OF GUIDANCE AND THE IMPORTANCE OF SALAAH

Abdullah bin Mas'ud Radiallahu Anhu reported:

He who would like to meet Allah tomorrow as Muslim, he should persevere and be on guard with regard to observing these prayers (Salaah), when the call is announced for them (Athaan), for Allah has ordained for your Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam the paths of right guidance, and these (prayers) are among the paths of right guidance.

If you were to pray in your houses as this man who stays away (from the mosque) and prays in his house, you would abandon the practice (Sunnah) of your Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, and if you were to abandon the practice (Sunnah) of your Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, you would go astray.

No man purifies himself (makes Wudhu), doing it well, then makes for one of those mosques without Allah recording a blessing for him for every step he takes and raising him a stage for it, and effacing a sin from him for it.

I have seen the time when no one stayed away from it (Salaah), except a hypocrite, who was well known for his hypocrisy, whereas a man would be brought swaying (due to weakness) between two men till he was set up in the saff.
