Growing a beard isnt a obligation upon a man, its Allah swt who grows the beard, its the mans obligation to stop shaving off what Allah grows. :shade:

It took me over 65 years to grow a beard. Because of my ethnic background facial hair is very sparse on the people of my race (well part of my family tree, I'm mixed race)

After going without any type of face fur, except a sick scraggly mustache, a beard suddenly grew during Ramadan (2007) it has never grown longer then fist length and is still exactly fist length although I do not trim it.

Yes, it is snow white.

With reference to the moustache, that's clip/trim though right? Not complete clean shaven where the moustache is, otherwise your beard looks a bit 'clip on'.

but then as you get older i think your hairs will eventually turn white naturally but i cant wait that long :X

But i have come across some sisters who say 'yes i dont mind a brother with a beard' and when you mention fist length their reply would be 'oh i thought maybe a shorter one, oh well inshaAllah he can do better as he's more religious etc etc...'

The length of the beard is a difference of opinion between scholars. Nearly all scholars agree that it is wajib (obligatory) to grow one. The extreme minority opinions are those that say a beard is only sunnah, and those who say you cannot trim it at all.

I think we should keep in mind that because of genetics some races do not have facial hair. I faced that problem and never dreamed I would ever have a beard. When I see a Muslim man without a beard I assume he is not capable of growing one, because of his race.

I honestly believe it was a miracle the manner in which mine appeared, and it has been a real blessing in only staying at the same length and needing very little care except brushing and washing.

The mustache did not follow suit. It still gets no more then looking like a shedding caterpillar and there is not much there to trim. Even then it is so slow growing it is months before it even looks like I have mustache whiskers, they usually fall out after a day or so.

Assalamu alaykum,

Many brothers seem to worry that they will look ugly or unattractive to sisters if they have a beard.

That is so not true, lol, sisters would actually prefer someone who does have a beard, they actually look nice - a beard doesn't mean you are perfect or without fault, but the same way the hijab is a sign of that you are struggling to obey Allah swt, so is a beard.

There aren't many brothers who keep a beard...I've only seen a couple around my area.

I know, to have a full-grown beard is a big part of the hipster style you see a lot of young men following. Khayr, there have been worse fashion trends, so this one isn't that bad, - just recently I saw 'beard lotion' at the shop :D, a perfect gift for your husband or brother lol.

Honestly, they look awesome when someone can pull one off. I, however, am not one of those people.
My beard grows in going to the right side of my face. So if I let it grow out long, it will swish naturally to the side, making me look like a stereotypical wizard xD It looks ridiculous and is actually uncomfortable.
So at most, I just have like 1/4th of an inch of hair on my face, or I'm clean shaven. Anything else looks silly on me.
