(2) I heard that a person must grow his beard up to one fist. is it so?…..I am the student of engg., I want to know that is having a beard strictly compulsory in Islam or it is a sunnah.I have come to know that beard should be atleast be covered by the fist of one’s hand.Please tell me that beard with smaller length than the fist is similar to the clean shaven beard of the person.I always remain in a discouraged spirit to have the beard on the land of darul harb as we muslim students are so much dependent on the nonmuslims for our future careers & education.As it is getting very difficult to follow the rule of beard in this environment due to communal hatreds. So, please sir help me on this.I am trying to keep my beard to sunnah length, and as I understand it, the minimum requirement is a fist length…Question: Assalamualaikum, I know that a majority of the Hanafi Ulamaa has said that the beard must have a length of one fist. Some brother said to me that some Ulamaa said it is enough to keep it at a length at which it covers the skin. (at such a length that you can grab it with the top of your fingers) is this true and which Ulamaa has said this? Also what is the status of wearing a moustache (without beard) as we seen many Muslims do? Was salaamcan u clarify the length of the beard?…evidence you gave in Answer 9687 regarding the verdicts on the Miqdar (length) of the beardMy question is that I know that trimming the beard less than fist length is haram but my dad pressures me to cut the beard and maintain it less than fist length. As my beard is now only growing and yet I do not get it fist length. So what should I do? Can I disobey my dad because beard is wajib and it is the sunnah of my Prophet Muhammad (SAW) but if I do not cut the beard my dad gets sad and my dad tortures me too. So what should I do? Please reply.
