QuestionWhat is the ruling of praying behind a person who shaves his beard and even makes fun of those who let it grow, and he orders them to shave it?Answer
All praise is for Allah Alone, and may He send peace and blessings upon His Messenger, His Messenger’s family and His Messenger’s Companions.
It is not allowed to make fun of a person who grows his beard, because growing it is only obedience to the order of Allah’s Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam). You should advise the mocker, explaining to him that by making fun of the beard, he may not only be committing a major sin but he also may be committing an act of disbelief. Allah Almighty says:
Say: “Was it at Allah, and His Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations) and His Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) that you were mocking?” Make no excuse; you have disbelieved after you had believed. (Qur’an, 9:65-66)
And Allah is the Granter of success. May Allah send peace and blessing upon our Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam), His family and his Companions.
