Shaving Beard

26 Oct 2021 Ref-No#: 3861

Assalamu wa alaikum, i am 21, my beard is naturally less grown and rolled, few hairs etc, many tell me to shave it 2, 3 times so it can start grow properly, it looks bad also, i heard that prophet Muhammad saw ordered to have better personality, so its better for non believers and i heard from scholars that specially practicing muslims should take care of their personality,
1. I dont know properly about opinions of ulma (if) differing about beard and specially i dont know what is permissible for me to do, should i ignore those peoples or do what they are saying?


Wa ʿAlaykumus Salām Wa Raḥmatullāhī Wa Barakātuh

Kindly refer to the following article:

In essence, the command of the Sharīʿah is not about ensuring that the beard grows to a certain length, but rather it is about leaving the beard to grow naturaly upto one fist i.e., let it be – do not trim or shave it.

We have been commanded to be neat and tidy, however, this should not be done at the expense of compromising other commands of the Sharīʿah. You should neaten your beard with oiling it.
