Hadith 1639

Ibn `Umar (Radhi Allahu Huma) said: The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa saw a boy, some portion of whose head was shaved and some of it was left out. He Sallalahu aleihi wa prohibited them from that and said,

"Shave the whole of it or leave the whole of it.'' [Muslim].


Commentary: This order of Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa was based on the reason that that hair-style was then in vogue among the Jews and Christian priests and ascetics. This style was also popular with the group which was given to mischief and disobedience. This is, however, permissible in exceptional circumstances. In any case, either one should shave the hair completely or keep them in such a style that there is no resemblance with women.

Hadith 1640

Abdullah bin Ja`far (Radhi Allahu Huma) said: The Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa gave respite for three days to the family of Ja`far (after his martydom). Then he came and said,

"Don't weep for my brother after this day.''

He said, "Bring all of my nephews to me.''

We were accordingly brought as if we were chickens. Then he Sallalahu aleihi wa said,

"Call for me a barber.'' He directed him to shave our heads which he did. [Abu Dawud].


Commentary:
Ja`far was the cousin of the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa and he was martyred in the battle of Mu'tah. Although martyrdom is an honour but even then the bereaved family does feel the shock of the loss. For this reason, the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa permitted them to give vent to their grief for three days. It should not, however, be taken to mean that he allowed them to lament and wail, because that is prohibited. What he actually allowed them was the natural weeping which does occur when people come for condolence and speak of the deceased. Such expression of grief is permissible after a period of three days also.

Therefore, what the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa had advised them was not in the nature of unlawful but natural. The children of the deceased called themselves "chickens'' as they were greatly enervated by the tragedy. This Hadith has been mentioned here to confirm the validity of shaving the hair of the head, especially of children, although keeping bobbed hair is more meritorious because the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa himself did so. Bobbed hair are cut short and allowed to hang loosely.

Hadith 1641

Ali radiyallahu anhu said: The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa prohibited a woman from shaving her head.[An-Nasa'i].


Commentary:
This Hadith is also included in At-Tirmidhi but Sheikh Al-Albani has regarded it "Da`if'' (weak). Please see Ahadith Ad-Da`ifah. However, in order to avoid resemblance with men, this prohibition for women will stand. If it is required on medical ground then it will be permissible.
