Keeping Hair

A believer’s entire life is governed by the laws and injunctions of Shari’ah. In every aspect of one’s life, whether relating to one’s domestic, social and economic dealings, or one’s ibaadaat, deeni rituals and acts of worship, one is commanded to follow the mubaarak sunnah of Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

Similarly, in physical appearance, a believer is duty bound to emulate the way of Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and refrain from adopting the culture and ways of the kuffaar. In essence, every aspect of Islam is perfect and totally distinguished from all other religions.
