Stay away from qaza haircut.

Qaza haircut is a style which the parts of hair is shaven or cut, and leaving another part. This is common in society especially among younger people.

Qaza haircut is forbidden according to ahadith


حَدَّثَنَا مُسْلِمُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ الْمُثَنَّى بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ دِينَارٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَرَ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم نَهَى عَنِ الْقَزَعِ‏.‏

Narrated (Abdullah) bin `Umar:

Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) forbade Al-Qaza' (leaving a tuft of hair here and there after shaving one's head.)

Sahih al-Bukhari 5921
In-book : Book 77, Hadith 136
USC-MSA web (English) : Vol. 7, Book 72, Hadith 804 (deprecated)
Sahih Bukhari


أَخْبَرَنِي عِمْرَانُ بْنُ يَزِيدَ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنُ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَبِي الرِّجَالِ، عَنْ عُمَرَ بْنِ نَافِعٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عُمَرَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏

‏ نَهَانِي اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ عَنِ الْقَزَعِ ‏"

‏ ‏‏

It was narrated from 'Abdullah bin 'Umar that :

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: "Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, has forbidden me from Al-Qaza' (to shave part of the head and leave part)."

Sahih (Darussalam)

Sunan an-Nasa'i 5050
In-book : Book 48, Hadith 11
English translation : Vol. 6, Book 48, Hadith 5053
Sunan an-Nasai

It is not surprising that it is also adopted by the kafirs. We come across celebrities, footballers having qaza haircut etc.


حَدَّثَنَا عُثْمَانُ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو النَّضْرِ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنُ ثَابِتٍ، حَدَّثَنَا حَسَّانُ بْنُ عَطِيَّةَ، عَنْ أَبِي مُنِيبٍ الْجُرَشِيِّ، عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَرَ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏

‏ مَنْ تَشَبَّهَ بِقَوْمٍ فَهُوَ مِنْهُمْ ‏"

‏ ‏‏

Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: He who copies any people is one of them.

Hasan Sahih (Al-Albani)

Sunan Abi Dawud 4031
In-book : Book 34, Hadith 12
English translation : Book 33, Hadith 4020
Abu Dawood

So what is the correct and allowed haircut?

According to the scholars, the hair being cut should be all in same length.

This is good to know. I wasn't aware tbh.

It is a popular trend amongst non muslims. Traditionally speaking i haven't seen this trend in the older Muslim generation either they shave completely or they don't.

A head full of hair is good Alhamdulillah. Keeps you warm!!
