Brother in Islaam,

Your desire and zeal to maintain a sunnah beard is praiseworthy.

We advise you to apply oil and other beard stimulating products to stimulate the growth of your beard and prevent further beard loss. You may also seek the advice of medical experts.

You are in our du’aas.

And Allaah Ta’aala Knows Best.
