LOS ANGELES (AP) — The trucker with the long white beard and turban faced a dilemma over work he desperately needed that would require him to violate the tenets of his Sikh religion by cutting hair that had never been cropped.It wasn't about the way Lakhbir Singh looked that was an issue — it was just a clipping for a drug test. When he refused to go against one of Sikhism's five articles of faith, he lost the job."It was one of the hardest times of my life," Singh said through an interpreter of the incident five years ago. "My body went numb and I...

Life Under Islamic State Rule: The Lost Barbers

In Mosul, Iraq, under so-called Islamic State, whippings and imprisonment for unacceptable haircuts and clothing are commonplace, say fleeing residents. For special occasions, however, barbers still cut and shave in secret, facing dire consequences if they are caught making modern styles. As Abdullah shaves a client at a camp about 30 kilometers from his home city, the 21-year-old man tells VOA about the dangers of being a barber in Mosul. His account, similar to many, has been edited for clarity.Before Islamic State, my six brothers and I owned five barber shops, but, when they [IS] took over, I started only shaving beards and cutting men's hair at home in secret.Even if we shaved the...

Why China Is Banning Islamic Veils, ChinaFile

This 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 against “Islamic extremism” in this...

What haircuts are permissible? - IslamQA

What haircuts are permissible?I have a few questions. Firstly, is it permissible to cut your hair in different lengths (buzz cut or fohawks), or can you shave of your sideburns and make a style on your beard, not shave it off. I am asking this because when I was younger the barber used to shave my sideburns of while giving me a haircut, but I’m almost 16 now and my sideburns are huge and I have no beard…I look like a monkey… My dad said I can’t shave it off because its part of my beard and keeping a beard is [wājib?]If you break something that is wājib, are you still a muslim and what is the punishment?
