Complete beard because it is Sunnah and shaving your beard makes one look childish, change my mind




Depends on what you mean by a complete beard. If you mean having one, it's fard. The differences come in what is defined as the beard. Only a very minor group of scholars don't consider it fard, but the overwhelming majority do and that's the correct opinion, Wa Allahu alam.




By the grace of Allah my beard is officially 8inches at 18. I look like a king.


Masha Allah


Allaahumma baarik


Sheesh bro 8 inches!?!?


Muslim (383) narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Trim the moustache and let the beard grow; be different from the Magians (Zoroastrians).”  https://www.google.com/amp/s/islamqa.info/amp/en/answers/48960


Mine gets irritating when it gets too long Even though i dream of an arthur morgan esque beard


Where the goatees only gang at 😌 Btw I know it's sunnah to keep a full beard, I just can't grow one lol. I think it's due to medical reasons, Allaahu A'lam


i grow it as much as i can but it’s not much lol, i manage


Hermit look


I chose don't cut it at all, let it grow as much as it goes. I will neaten the beard by lining it up (cheeks and neck line) every now and then, but won't trim it till it reaches a fistfull, as is the stance of Hanafi Fiqh.


I can grow out a full beard and do that but normally I line it and trim the entire thing. I'm trying to grow out a full one now bahaha. Going solid I think insha'llah I can grow out a fistful length within 3 months




My beard is 6 inches mashallah 🙏🏽


6 inches is the length of approximately 0.67 'Wooden Rice Paddle Versatile Serving Spoons' laid lengthwise.


Thank u 😊


I go full beard and make a little French moustache.


Same but trim the stache the grows into my mouth.


It just suits my face best like that while still following sunnah


Love a bearded brother! Clean shaven.. makes a man look less manly.. more like a female’s face.


You have spoken the truth


not long, not short. trimmed time to time


I cant becasue of a illnes.


I don't grow it because it is perceived as a social/cultural status symbol more than anything else these days. Lots of guys grow them but still indulge in major sins. I will only grew it when I feel I'm worthy of growing it out when my I make sure to be more practicing and meet other areas of Sunnah. And even then I don't want that association of thinking I'm a pious guy just because of a beard. It does not indicate piety.


That analogy is flawed. Think of it this way, do you stop praying because you commit sins?


Praying is same as growing beard? What religious connotation is there to growing beard ? Many people in our community grow it because they think it has a religious connotation (make them look pious, even tho they hit up girls for zina on Insta) of making them appear pious. When in reality it was only done to differentiate Muslims from polytheists in appearance at the time of the Prophet(AS). No way is it more important to me than prayer or other aspects of Sunnah which has spiritual /religious connotation. But, that does not mean I won't grow it nor I believe its not considered fard. I'm aware of that but it's not a priority before other aspects of Deen where I grew up and raised in. Especially due it being perceived as a cultural/social/religious status symbol. Anyhow, I think some blame needs to go on guys who think Islam means grow beard before work on character. It's about time to hold people responsible. If you are Sunnah and Deen observing guys, don't go around seeking Zina and frequenting hookah shops.


I think I’ve made my point. Your view on beards is skewed and only you can change it. May Allah give you hidaya


I'll grow a beard when Muslim guys stop sending DM's to Muslim girls for zina and Muslim girls stop accepting such DMs for anything other than halal marriage involving parents. Say amen.


The strongest opinion to the brothers is that its sinful to not grow the beard, so if someone does so to please Allah why criticize him with regards to his other sins? Why help the shaytaan against your brother in this way to possibly discourage other brothers that read your message. We hope the brothers continue to let their beards grow and continue to refrain from their other sins. This seems like a trick of the shaytaan akhi, tbh no one really cares about how big another brothers beard is. Do it for the sake of Allah and continue in obedience to the Creator. How can someone not be worthy or be worthy of growing their beard out akhi? Allah ordered us to grow our beards, and we are Muslim.


Who told you it's sinful? It is not in my school of thought. I can easily grow a beard, whenever, but how many Muslims know it just done to differentiate Muslims in appearance from polytheists and it has no religious/spiritual connotations? In my community(American Muslims), people associate it with piety and see it as a religious act. Lots of guys grow it to appear religious. But they are sending DMs on social media for Zina , often to Muslim girls too. Alhamdillah I put a big spiritual effort to not coming near zina, which takes way more dedication than anything else, and never had any physical relations with opposite gender let alone hitting up Muslim girls for zina. I'd much rather be the guy that don't grow out beard right away but prioritize much more serious aspects of Deen than guy who rushes to grow beard for status symbol while greatly lacking in character or outright being indecent. Allah did not order us to grow beards, it's the Prophet Mohammed who did. I follow a religion where Allah is just and status symbols mean nothing to him, rather your actions. I am sure to Allah one who don't grow out beard but stay away from Zina is better, much better , than one who did and seeking Zina with Muslim girls. I wish you guys took seriously avoiding Zina as much as you take serious growing beards. I don't follow a religion where people are crazy over growing beards but could care less about people hitting up girls all the time for Zina. Just as long as he has beard you are comforted. I can easily grow very nice beard with my genetics, btw,and I I guess I can become trillion times better than guys with beards that seek Zina and immodesty since beard seems so valued , lol.


Qur'an 4:59 "O you who believe, obey Allah and obey the Messenger" Qur'an 53:2-3 "Your companion (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) has neither gone astray nor has erred."" Nor does he speak of (his own) desire." Quran 59:7 "whatsoever the Messenger gives you, take it; and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it). And fear Allah; verily, Allah is Severe in punishment." Akhi whatever the Messenger commanded us with, It is from Allah. There isnt 2 different religions. The Messenger taught us what Allah wanted.


I can’t grow a proper one, alas my option 2. Makes it look manly, and full, but not too weak fluffy ball.


Men try to blend into society. It depends on their job. A banker would definitely shave. I wish the ummah had better consistency than Sikhs. However, there are so many different cultures and that a part of the beauty.


I only shave the mustache.




I used to keep a solid beard but the mask wearing has made my already skin condition out so now I'm clean shaven.


Fist length for me. When it grows bigger I trim it up.


My school prohibits facial hair for males, only allowing faint moustaches. Nothing on the chin. Most of my community doesn’t have beards, or a fistful. Am I done for ?


beard is a sign of masculinity


I had a huge beard, was so proud of it alhamdulillah, then I was told that there was dandruff in my beard so I shaved it and I need to apply oil everyday and brush the beard downwards. Inshallah make dua I can have a proper beard again soon.


I heard that if I shave it every once in a while it'll grow bigger than if I let it grow normally so I shave it once every 2 months


Many people have said this is false
