I was browsing through your answers but did not find the answer to my question. I am 18 years old and want to grow out my beard. However, when I do not shave, my facial hair takes a very long time to grow, and when it does come out it is curly and scraggly. My mother tells me to shave and I will not be punished as I am doing it so that my beard will grow fuller (which I am now doing.) Is this allowed if the intention is not to disobey or aesthetic, but instead to grow a more legitimate beard?

Answer:
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

I pray this finds you in the best of health and spirits. I am not aware of a dispensation for shaving for the reason mentioned.

And Allah alone gives success.

Faraz Rabbani
