Furthermore, is it included in the rights (huqooq) of parents to stop their children from following the sunnah. Please answer with reference to Qur’an and Sunnah, so that i can be convinced myself and then be able to convince my parents.


‘For Muslim males to grow a beard is Waajib (compulsory), and to let it grow
