Benefit: A Warning against Shaving the Beard

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

 Shaykh ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ibn Bāz (raḥimuhullāh) said: As for the beard, it is impermissible to shave it or take anything from it at any given time; rather it is an obligation to let it grow due to that which has been affirmed in the Ṣaḥīḥayn (Bukhārī and Muslim) on the authority of Ibn ʿUmar (raḍi Allāhu ʿanhu) who said, the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam) said:

Oppose the polytheists, lengthen the beard and clip the moustaches.

Likewise, Imām Muslim collected in his Ṣahīh, on the authority of Abū Hurayrah (raḍi Allāhu ʿanhu) who said, the prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-sallam) said:

Trim the moustaches and grow the beards, oppose the Fire-Worshipers (Majūs).

This calamity has become greater in this time of ours due to many of the people opposing this Sunnah and waging war against (growing) the beards, and them being pleased with looking like women and disbelievers (by not growing their beards), nevertheless, even those who associate themselves with knowledge and educating [fall into this calamity of trimming the beard]. Verily to Allāh we belong and to Him we shall return. We ask Allāh to guide us and guide all of the Muslims to accept the Sunnah, adhere to it and call towards it, even if most of the people turn away from it. Allāh (alone) is sufficient for us, and He is the best disposer of affairs, there is no might nor power except with Allāh the Most High and Exalted.

Benefit: Al-Albānī: May Allāh Beautify You with the Beard

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

On an occasion while Shaykh al-Albānī was ill, a doctor who was clean-shaven visited him. After giving the Shaykh his medicine and on his way to leave, he said to the Shaykh:

“Make duʿāʾ for me Shaykh!”

So Shaykh al-Albānī replied:

“May Allāh beautify you with that which He has beautified the men with [i.e. the beard]”.

Excerpt: O Muslim Men, Do Not Be Metrosexuals!!

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
An excerpt from the beneficial lecture series: "The Eleven Women Who Spoke About Their Husbands (CD 2/4)." In this section, Dāwūd Adīb discusses the evolution of metrosexuality - the feminisation of the male in our time. Drawing upon examples from the core topic and the behavioural impact evident in some of the Muslim men today, the issue of natural disposition from a Sharīʿah angle is discussed.
