    for Bharysh....women hair cut !!!

    ARE WOMEN ALLOWED TO CUT THEIR HAIR?

    Allah Taăla created the Human being, individually perfect - with no stigma
    of sin and in the best shape.

    In Surah Teen Allah Taăla declares:

    'Indeed we have created human beings of the best stature.'(Quran95:4)

    Every part of the human body has been placed respectively to serve its
    purpose. Some parts, organs and limbs play an important and vital role
    whilst others have a minor supporting role. At the outset, looking at the
    external human appearance its beauty is manifest immediately and, it's at
    this juncture that we are most grateful to Allah Taăla.

    Consequently, we are not owners of ourselves i.e. we have been entrusted by
    Allah Taăla with our physical body and internal self. Therefore, as this is
    a Trust (Amaanat), it does not belong to us; and as a result, we have to
    obey and respect its obligations. If the Maker requires us to fulfil a
    certain requirement, e.g. to cover a portion of the body from the navel to
    the knee in the case of men then that law is to be obeyed.

    Similarly, a woman is required to keep and wear her hair without cutting it
    short.


    This latter issue will be highlighted in the following discourse.

    Allah Taăla has concentrated the physical beauty of the human being in the
    upper part of the body, i.e. the face. The face is probably the most
    important feature in the whole external anatomy of the human being. In fact,
    every effect and reaction becomes evident on the face instantly. Hence, the
    face is the central part of the whole body exposed entirely and at all
    times.

    It is obvious that, what surrounds the face displays an important value and
    forms a protective gear. Moreover, it displays the beauty and identity of a
    person.
    Therefore, the long hair of the woman professes her beauty, the one
    most powerful image of a female.

    During Hajj/Umrah, in order to come out of the Ihraam, a man can either make
    Halq (shave) or Qasr (trim) of the hair on the head. For a woman, she has to
    clip the size of the small finger (approximately 2cm.)
    From among the restriction imposed on her during Hajj is (as the text
    appears in the Fiqh book, Al-Quduri).

    'She will not shave but trim'

    'Because Rasulullah (Sallallaaahu Álayhi Wasallam) forbade women from
    shaving but commanded them to trim (the hair).'

    The fact that women are only allowed to trim - a short length (2cm) and not
    more - explains the issue under discussion.

    Once the wife of Rasulullah (Sallallaaahu Álayhi Wasallam), Hadhrat Umme
    Salamah (RA) asked him, 'O Prophet of Allah, I am a woman who keeps her hair
    closely plaited; should I unto it when I wash after sexual defilement?' 'No'
    he replied, 'It is enough for you to throw three handfuls over it (your
    head)'.

    In another Hadith, Rasulullah (Sallallaaahu Álayhi Wasallam) replied to a
    question saying, 'As regards man, he should undo the hair of his head and
    wash it until the water reach the roots of the hair. But there is no harm if
    the woman does not undo it (her hair) and pours three handful of water over
    her head.

    These traditions clearly indicate that women are allowed, in exceptional
    cases, to throw water over their heads - which is not the real matter of
    discussion here - but that:
    the wife of Rasulullah (Sallallaaahu Álayhi Wasallam), Umme Salamah
    (Radhiyallaahu Ánhaa) herself had long hair;

    NOTE : The Noble Qur'an refers to them (wives) as the (Mothers of the Muslims)

    no directive was given to cut, trim, clip, or shave the hair in order to
    solve the problem ;
    and ,

    in many such questions a similar answer was given.

    In one of the most popular books of Fiqh (Islamic Jurisprudence) Hidaayah,
    the text reads:

    "It is not necessary for a woman to release her plaits when taking a bath,
    if the water reaches the root of her hair."

    4) Sheikh Hafiz says in Fathul Qadeer :

    "It is not permissible for men to imitate women in clothing and
    beautification that are especially associated with women only (and vice
    versa).

    5) Hadith:

    'Ibn Abbas (Radhiyallaahu Ánhu) reported that Rasulullah (Sallallaaahu
    Álayhi Wasallam) cursed the hermaphrodite from the men and the like from
    the women.'

    6) Hadith

    Rasulullah (Sallallaaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said : Glory (to Allah) who
    beautified men by the beard and (similarly) women by their lock of hair.

    7) By nature, Allah Ta'ala has distinguished men from women respectively in
    their beauty, e.g. externally the masculine beauty of a man is in the beard
    and the feminine beauty of a woman is in her long hair.


    It is reported from Hadhrat Ali (Radhiyallaahu Ánhu) that Rasulullah
    (Sallallaaahu Álayhi Wasallam) prohibited a woman from shaving her hair.

    Hence, for men to shave the beard is like the women shaving their head.

    8) In their external features Allah Ta'ala created both sexes differently.
    For this and other reasons men are strictly prohibited to imitate women and
    vice versa.


    Rasulullah (Sallallaaahu Álayhi Wasallam) cursed men who imitate women and
    cursed women who imitate men.

    9) Hadith

    Glory (to Allah) who beautified men by their beard and beautified women by
    their plaits and locks of hair.

    Note : The above is a hymn read by groups of angels as indicted in the
    hadith.

    In conclusion, we must remember that our perpetual enemy, Shaitaan, will
    cause us to deviate from the truth and constantly instruct us to follow his
    dubious ways. Allah Ta'ala says, "And surely I (Shaitaan) will most
    definitely deviate them, aspire them and order them;hence they will change
    Allah's creation."(Qur'an 4:119)

          Fear Allah sarah!

          pray for your forgiveness, indeed Allah is merciful and forgiving!!!

            did u even bother reading quran even once in Ramadan?

            even though if u did but ever bothered to read the meaning of wot u reading ?

            even though if u did read the meaning, did u ever bother trying to getting the exact meaning for any specific verse?

            lets say u did all this but ever bothered to act upon it in real life, ever tried to apply the teachings of quran in ur life?

            well let me hear wot u have to say ?

Another sign that women are destined for hell, despite the jannat beneath their feet. I can't wait! Simultaneous freezing and burning. How ever will our creator manage that?
                Sarah, what is the reason for your being so negative in all your posts?

                  *sigh* calling Allah, a hypocrit...."he's even worse than me" you actually think your a level above him?

                  unh, well like Rehaan, just mentioned "Allah is merciful and forgiving" and many others have told have told me the same. Try to be overall a nice person, and pray five time a day, and im sure Allah will forgive the hair and pants thing, and let us in heaven...

                  You know what? Allah, will definetly forgive you, im sure about that, but I wont forgive you for calling Allah a hypocrite/worse then you...

                    i still cant believe she actually said that, its just not getting into my head!

                    i cant blame sarah for her dreadful and ghastly out spoken words!

                    i feel like we all are gonna get punished for her mistake we r suppose to tell ppl the right thing when they are off track.

                    but again i think she is being conditioned in different manner by her parents and i really dont know wots her parents r upto bcz this is some serious problem that they must be aware of!!

                    one thing we can surely do is pray for each others forgivness from Allah and Allah is so merciful he will for sure listen to one of our dua's so lets just do that and make sure we dont get off track again, pray 5 times salat and try to follow the Sunnah of Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) and very lastly fear Allah bcz very sooon we all must meet him its just matter of time!!

                    keep this in mind!

                      HEY! there is no such thing as doctrine of original sin in Islam aight?

                      Besides, there isnt any other major religion which liberates, dignifies both men and women than Islam. I mean from wht we can surmise from the texts of these religions.

                            cuz maybe I am??

                            did u even bother reading quran even once in Ramadan?
                            Thanks for the advice. I don't wait for Ramadan to read the Qur'an.

                            even though if u did but ever bothered to read the meaning of wot u reading ?
                            more than you can ever imagine my friend..

                            even though if u did read the meaning, did u ever bother trying to getting the exact meaning for any specific verse?
                            once again.. have pondered on the several meanings and their connotations and possibilities.. I let my mind roam free and am not chained down by tradition and dogmas.

                            lets say u did all this but ever bothered to act upon it in real life, ever tried to apply the teachings of quran in ur life?
                            once again.. i'm answerable to the force I submit to.. I don't see it as you.

                            well let me hear wot u have to say ?
                            always glad to share. My mission is to combat ignorance and tradition and let free thought rule. I'll be alone for a long part of it.. but sooner or later.. someone else will open their mind, break the shackles and join in thinking freely.

                            ... then I'd beg leave and not pester you any more.

                              here's something i came across on www.islam.org

                              Topic :
                              Women: Cutting Hair

                              Question:
                              Is it permissable for muslim women to cut her hair?

                              Answer:
                              Dear Br. F. As-salaamu alaykum. Islamic Law differentiates between "shaving" (halq) and "shortening" (taqseer) one's hair. In your question, you didn't specify why you meant by "cutting", therefore, we will give you the Islamic position in both cases. Shaving hair (i.e., cutting it by a sharp object such as a razor blade or skin-close clippers, etc.) is forbidden for women unless there is a justifiable reason such as the woman needs an operation on her head or has to undergo special treatment on her scalp. But shortening her hair is allowed if she desires to do so. The only thing is that when women shorten their hair, they should not be doing this to imitate men. Therefore, the intention is important behind the act. Thank you for asking and God knows best.
