Hi,

I'm wondering what you mean by significance, the reasons is that the Prophet, peace be upon him, told Muslims to do it.

Eesa :)

following the Sunnah of our Beloved Prophet (saw) brings great blessings. It is Wajib or obligatory for a Muslim man to grow a beard.

bro these are not my personal views. May Allah save me from speaking out of my own desire when Allah have already showed us the way through His Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him).
read this regarding beard:
Imaam Bukhari (Radhiallaahu Anhu) reports on the authority of Naafi' who narrates from Abdullah ibn Umar (Radhiallaahu Anhu) that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, 'Oppose the Mushrikeen (polytheists); lengthen the beard and trim the moustache.'

Naafi' further states, 'And ibn Umar (Radhiallaahu Anhu) during Hajj or Umrah used to hold on to his beard with his fist and cut off whatever was in excess of that.' (Bukhari vol.2 pg.875; Kitaab-ul-Libaas)

Through this Hadith, the verdict of the growing of the beard being Waajib (obligatory) is deduced. That is because any explicit command of Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) will be regarded as Waajib, if there is no apparent, clear reason/proof which states that that particular command is for Istihbaab (preference). This is an established fact in Usool-ul-Fiqh (principles of jurisprudence).

Wearing turban is Sunnah too.
and Allah knows best.

Mashallah, very enlightening.

Why would any woman want her husband to look like a woman?
