THE NOBLE BEARD AND HAIR OF THE HOLY PROPHET Allah bless and greet him and his Family and Companions

Bismillah al-Rahman al-RahimTHE NOBLE BEARD AND HAIR OF THE HOLY PROPHETAllah bless and greet him and his Family and CompanionsThe Noble BeardThe adjectives used in relation to the noble beard in the authentic narrations of the Prophetic attributes are ample/full/plenteous (kathr), large/heavy (dakhm), and great/very large (azm). Thick (kathth) is also used but seems of less established reliability. Wide (arda) is not used in the hadith but as a gloss by a contemporary scholar.The most authentic evidence the hadith of Jabir in Muslim and Ahmad merely states a full (kathr) beard.Following are the narrations that mention the Noble Beard:1. In Sahih Muslim from Jabir ibn Samura Allah be well-...

Clothing - Oxford Islamic Studies Online

Clothing In Muslim countries, a person's clothing may reflect practical, religious, social, cultural, and political considerations. For centuries, Muslims typically wore long, flowing garments. Today some Muslims prefer Western-style clothing to traditional attire, and others opt for modern variations of customary dress.Practical Functions.Practicality has been a significant factor in the clothing choices of Muslims. Long, loose-fitting garments have many advantages in the hot, dry climates of the Middle East. Covering the body provides protection from sun exposure and allows perspiration to remain on the skin, which keeps the body moist. In addition, traditional Arab head coverings, such...

These barbers found a sanctuary of style in Baghdad after fleeing the Islamic State - Middle East - Stripes

These barbers found a sanctuary of style in Baghdad after fleeing the Islamic StateBAGHDAD — Nearly everything about the barbers at one establishment of suave Iraqi hair is at odds with the puritanical militants who overran their home towns.Skilled in blow-drying and thickly applying gels, they transform patrons with chic looks that the Islamic State has brutally sought to eradicate.The barbers also sport risque hairdos. They drink, chain-smoke and curse like sailors — all punishable sins, according to the group.They have endured extraordinary suffering because of the hard-line Sunni militants, who rampaged through their home towns and murdered family members and friends.But here in central...

In Iraq, to Be a Hairstylist Is to Risk Death - latimes

BAGHDAD — A bomb rips through a women's hair salon, shattering wall-length mirrors and shredding posters of coiffures.In another neighborhood, gunmen fire wildly into a busy barbershop, killing the owner and three teenage boys waiting for haircuts.At yet another shop, a masked visitor presses a note into the palm of a horrified haircutter. The message: "Our swords are thriving for the neck of barbers."Iraq's insurgency has long targeted local police, government leaders and national guardsmen as a means of destabilizing the nascent democracy, but now guerrillas have taken aim at a far more unlikely line of work.In what some describe as a Taliban-like effort to impose a militant Islamic...

U.K. Pastors Are Growing Beards for an Unexpected Reason, TakePart

These days most guys who grow long, bushy beards get labeled as hipsters trying to morph into microbrewing lumberjacks from the 1890s. But the laughing wink and nod folks give to the hairy, Portlandia-style stereotype isn’t always extended when the men growing the beards are Muslim—or perceived to be Muslim.Now, two ministers in predominantly Muslim areas of London are being praised by a prominent Church of England official for growing beards to signal solidarity across ethnic and religious lines in the community.“Two of the most energetic priests in east London [have] recently grown beards of an opulence that would not have disgraced a Victorian sage,” the bishop of London, Richard...

Why China Is Banning Islamic Veils, ChinaFile

Why China Is Banning Islamic VeilsThis week, regional authorities outlawed Islamic veils from all public spaces in the regional capital of China’s Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region (XUAR). The Urumqi ban, which went into effect on Sunday February 1 (coincidentally the third annual World Hijab Day ), empowers Chinese police to punish violators and dole out fines of up to U.S.$800 for those who fail to enforce the prohibition.In recent years, the veil has emerged as a key battleground in the struggle to regain stability in Xinjiang. Stripping women of their head and body coverings provides the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) with a rare measure of what it sees as “progress” in the struggle...

Roots of Rebellion: Beards and beyond in Iran, Bidoun

It seems that “unconventional” hairstyles are this season’s taboo in the Islamic Republic. “Football clubs have been ordered to stop players with long, messy hair, ponytails, hair bands and certain kinds of beard, or they will be fined and banned from playing,” warned Iran’s Football Federation in November.Unconventional beards reference a host of Iranian variations on the goatee (bozi). The professori, the thicker traditional version and the diplomat, a sculpted matrix of thin lines from lip to chin, are both under fire: last year the Tehran passport office stopped accepting either, demanding either a full beard or no beard at all in official pictures. Photo studios opposite the office...
