        The support for prohibition for shaving the beard is drawn by Ulema from the ahadeeth where Rasool Allah (sallallaho alaihe wasallam) directed people to grow a beard and shave the mustache so that they were different from the kuffar and mushrekeen.

        Rasool Allah (sallallaho alaihe wasallam) himself had a beard. So, the keeping of a beard would definitely fall in th ecategory of a prefered sunnah as he both encouraged people and did it himself.

        When we say that shaving is akin to imitating the kuffar and mushrekeen, we find that nowadays we are imitating them in many respects. Clothes, social customs, communication etiquites, etc. As one scholar said in a dars I recently heard a recording of we are today following the sunnah of the west. May Allah guide us in following the Sunnah of Rasool Allah (sallallaho alaihe wasallam).

          if shaving is not good for health (How weird!!), then whhy is it ok to shave moustaches?

          The best theory would be, it must have been a fashion the muhammed liked, and evrybody else just copied him.

            read wot factfinder wrote !

            "The support for prohibition for shaving the beard is drawn by Ulema from the ahadeeth where Rasool Allah (sallallaho alaihe wasallam) directed people to grow a beard and shave the mustache so that they were different from the kuffar and mushrekeen."

            that means kufarz(non-muslims)back then had beards whereas it was the same for muslims so to be different than u kufarz back then and even now we were told to shave mustache !!

            how logical is that !

                What if the beard has to be shaved for medical reasons. Like when sharpnel from a daisycutter went through the beard and you have to operate?

                    its exactly the same as when a mujahids bullet pierces through the smelly, hairy and filthy armpit of a hindu 'sainak'.

                      shaving your beard is not haram, but growing a beard is sunnat-e-rasool...

                            ali_r is right, u shud consider women....
                            i heard in a movie once "the more the hair, the more the man"....
                            thats what men r about, being hairy....
                            otherwise they wud be smooth like girls....

                            Both Halal & Haram r evident but between them r doubtful things, most ppl have no knowledge about them. So whoever saves himself from suspicious things saves his religion & honor, & whoever indulges in suspicious things indulges in Haram.
