Cutting the hair different lengths

Q: Would it be impermissible and sinful to cut the hair in different lengths, if there are no haraam elements such as imitation of kuffar or a certain style, nor is the hair being shaven of partially just rather merely trimming it a bit on certain sides.


A: All the hair should be cut at the same length. This is in keeping to the sunnah.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
