DOES YOUR HAIRCUT RESEMBLE THAT OF THE EVILDOERS?

All Praise be to Allah(swt), the most compassionate, the most merciful.

It is narrated from Ibn ‘Umar that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah(swt) be upon him) saw a boy, part of whose head had been shaved and part of it left. He told them not to do that and said: “Shave all of it or leave all of it.” (Bukhari-5921) Al-Albaani classed it as saheeh in Saheeh al-Nasaa’i.

The one who is to cut his hair should make it all the same length. Either short or long.
Shortening a part of the hair and keeping other parts long comes under the heading of qaza and it is forbidden.

 Abu Dawood narrated from ‘Abd-Allah(swt) ibn ‘Umar (may Allah(swt) be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah(swt) (blessings and peace of Allah(swt) be upon him) forbade qaza’ and said: “Shave all of it or leave all of it.”

it says in Sharh al-Iqnaa’: Qaza’ includes shaving some places on the sides of the head, or shaving the middle and leaving the sides, as most of the Christians do, or shaving the sides and leaving the middle, as many of the foolish do, or shaving the front and leaving the back. Ahmad was asked about shaving the back of the head and he said: This is the action of the Magians, and whoever imitates a people is one of them. Thus it is known that it is not permissible to leave some parts of the hair longer than others. (‘Abd-Allah(swt) ibn Ghadyaan, ‘Abd al-Razzaaq ‘Afeefi, Ibraaheem ibn Muhammad Aal al-Shaykh.)

Nowadays it has become a trend among youth, both men and women, to keep a part of hair in such a way that there is an are that is long and an area that is completely shaved.
It must be noted that, it is without any doubt, a wrong action and qaza.

It was narrated that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah(swt) be upon him) forbade qaza’; he saw a boy who had part of his head shaved and he said: “Shave all of it or leave all of it.”

It is following blindly the wrongdoers and evildoers. Moreover, this style is not beautification rather it is spoiling peoples appearance and altering the creation of Allah(swt), which is forbidden. There is no benefit in it but only wastage of time, effort, and money. Apart from taking part in wrong and following corrupt people foolishly.

Just because some TV actor adopted this style all men are getting crazy over it. Did you even give it a second thought before following? We advise men not to go for it and if you happen to have it already, mend it before it is too late. The trends of corrupt and disbelievers are not for Muslims. My dear brothers abstain from it.

We advise women to keep hairstyles that are acceptable and that which their mothers and grandmothers kept. There is a blessing in following halal and a greater reward in avoiding that which is wrong yet tempting for the sake of Allah(swt). Do not follow the steps of immoral and corrupt people.

May Allah(swt) help us.
