How Long One’s Beard Should Be?

with regards to the minimum and maximum in fact there are over seven or eight
opinions on the issue and you find you know some ULEMA very few in classical
period and it’s become very common in our period to claim that you cannot
touch the beard at all let it grow even if it goes down to the floor now this is
something that you in fact you do not find any of the classical ULEMA that
I have researched and Allah knows best who sent this but this is opinion that
has been popularized by certain certain scholars and they say you cannot touch
the beard at all on the other hand and the other extreme you have people who
say it is obligatory that you must trim the beard after a certain length and
they usually say after one fistful and in the middle there are four or five
positions how can it be in the middle well some say it is Mustahab to trim
some say it is mustahab not to trim some say you’re allowed to trim below the fist
length some say you confer from the sides and not from those from the bottom
etc so there’s many different opinions out there looking at all of them and
their evidence is one thing is quite clear the Prophet SAW said I’m
commanded growing the beard this has been reported in over five or six
traditions most of which are in Bukhari and Muslim in Muslim Ahmed It was in
Tirmdhi the Prophet SAW said
he said don’t pluck it so when he said
don’t pluck the beard and let it to grow this is quite clear that this is an
obligation that we must follow it it is reported by at least three of the Sahaba
and at least ten of the tabiun that they used to trim their beards some of
them after a fistful some of them only during hajj and umrah but over you know
10 of the early scholars of islam used to trim their beards to some fashion and
this shows us that they understood from the command of the prophets SAW
that the prohibition is not to trim but the prohibition is to not have a beard
so they understood that if you if you trim it after a fistful if you trim it
after a like this does not contradict the hadith or the Prophet SAW to grow the
beard growing the beard means you grow it it doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to
touch at all it means you have something called a beard so the fact that these
early Sahaba and tabiaun trimmed to a certain level some later scholars
would then say ok since they trimmed only to a fistful this is the minimum
requirement but the question right here in a hold on a sec if the sahaba
tabiaoun only trim to a fistful does that make it a legal ruling in our
religion some would say yes it does that is a position of many ULEMA and i remember I do
not agree with this basic or Usuuli principle and I would say the fact that
the Sahaba or tabiaun trimmed to a fistful shows us the maximum that
it shows us is that this is a good length and it is a mustahab length to
have to claim that a person is sinful for trimming less more than a fistful if
you like I mean having a beard less than a fistful to claim a person is
disobeying Allah and His Messenger I think that’s very very harsh statement
to derive from the actions of the Sahaba and Tabiaun I think that the most
that can be derived is that the beard has an optimal length and that optimal
length is a fistful if somebody has a beard that is of a smaller length and a
fistful I do not think that such a person is sinful at all he has not
disobeyed Allah and His Messenger you might say it is makrooh you might if you
sum if somebody said this I would see where they’re coming from and it could
even the argue it is MOBA and not makuu so the question is what is the bare
minimum well the bare minimum for this needs to be needs to be looked at
linguistically what is a lahia and the majority position of the linguists and
the grammarians is that a Lahiat the arabic word for a beard is that which grows
on the cheeks and the chin there is one very strange opinion minority opinion
that the beard is only that which grows on the chin so you find some of the
modern duaat and scholars shave everything except what grows on the chin
and they say this is a very minimum of alaihe and they have some evidence
because they have some linguistic grammarians that support it but the
majority position which has been held by the majority of linguists including
given an eminent I see it including even one board including an Fela body and
others I’ll have to look up some more names but the majority position has been
that the beard is that which grows on the cheeks and the chin therefore if a
person has facial hair that constitutes a beard when you look at it you think
this is a beard then I think that a person has met the bare minimum
obligation and they are not sinful for it I
do not think the Sharia has a minimum in terms of centimeters in terms of I think
this is going a little bit too we’re getting a little bit too you know what
about the what’s very common now where it’s just like a thin line but yeah the
draw line the draw line this if somebody looks at it and I really don’t think
this is called a beard even in the English language I mean I think this is
a facial hair that no shaving for two days I mean I think a reasonable amount
of hair and here’s the point now who defines what is reasonable I don’t have
a precise definition I mean when you see a beard you know what it is it’s not you
cannot nobody takes a measuring tape and measures how long the hairs are what it
is I think this is a bit too precise but but what you’re talking about that
pencil line which is less than you know one millimeter and you know the hair is
literally just not shaved for two days that doesn’t quite constitute a beard
because it’s not the full cheeks it’s not the full cheekbones and the full
chin that a person has hair on in any case so to shave the hair of the upper
cheeks and the hair beneath the chin on the throat this is pretty much unanimous
consensus allowed I mean there’s hardly any difference to shave the hair that’s
below the eyebrows for example below the eyes right really high up on the cheek on
the cheek upper cheekbone until shave the hair on the throat this does not
constitute the beard because that’s not the beard that’s other facial hair but
but to shave more and more down to the cheek to just get that pencil line as
you said I think that that is problematic and it doesn’t do justice to
the beard so I would say if a person uses your average trimmer that is found
in the supermarket’s right in the trim to a reasonable length and they shave
and they have a fashionable beard if you like and that’s very common amongst
Muslims I would say they have done the minimum they are not sinful but it is
mustahab and it is encouraged to grow it longer
and I would say the optimum amount would should be to have a fistful because that
is what the Sahaba did I would say it is definitely must to have to have that
long of a beard and Allah knows best
you

If Allah makes you stand up you will never fall, and if he lets you fall and leaves you to yourself, you will always fall.
