Salaam my question is is the shaving Haram? if its haram can you give me prove from Hadith? and how long we have to have wsalaam


(Fatwa: 263/239=D/1430)


It is haram to shave beard. It is narrated in many hadith: احفوا الشوارب واعفوا اللحی (trim the moustache and grow beard). The imperative sentence suggests that it is wajib (essential). Therefore, shaving beard is haram. The beard at least should be one fist in length:

کما في الدر المختار: ولذا یحرم علی الرجل قطع لحیتہ وقال الشامي تحتہ وھو أن یقبض الرجل لحیتہ فما زاد منھا علی قبضۃ قطعہ (رد المحتار مع الدر المختار 9:583)
