Is it true that constantly shaving facial hair will result in a nice, thick, and proper beard? For people who have nice beards here, did you shave regularly in the early days of your facial hair to get it to become what it is today? Can one grow a nice, thick, stylish, and full beard without shaving, if he just leaves his facial hair as it is and never shaves, does it eventually transform into a proper beard? I know shaving the beard is haram, but is it true that you're allowed to shave facial hair with the intention of making it come out nicer?
Another reason for men to grow beards (other than it being wajib, and looking cool) ... Are beards good for your health? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-35350886 ... In this study, published in the Journal of Hospital Infection, they swabbed the faces of 408 hospital staff with and without facial hair. They had good reasons for doing so. We know that hospital-acquired infections are a major cause of disease and death in hospitals, with many patients acquiring an infection they didn't have when they went in. Hands, white coats, ties and equipment have all been blamed, but what about beards? Well, the researchers were surprised to find that it was the clean-shaven staff, and not the beardies, who were more likely to be carrying something unpleasant on their faces. The beardless group were more than three times as likely to be harbouring a species known as methicillin-resistant staph aureus on their freshly shaven cheeks. MRSA is a particularly common and troublesome source of hospital-acquired infections because it is resistant to so many of our current antibiotics. Far more interesting, in a few of the petri dishes he noticed that something was clearly killing the other bacteria. The most obvious suspect was a fellow microbe. We see microbes as our enemy, but they clearly don't see us that way. Down at their level bacteria and fungi spend their time competing with each other. They fight for food, resources and space. By doing so, over millennia, they have evolved some of the most sophisticated weapons known to microbe-kind - antibiotics. Penicillin was originally extracted from Penicillium notatum, a species of fungus. The microbe-killing properties of this fungus were discovered by Alexander Fleming when he noticed that a fungus spore, which had accidently blown into his lab from researchers further down the corridor, had killed some bacteria he was growing on a petri dish. continues.. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-35350886
They took lots of men and women and showed them beard ranges from non to full out mullah beards. A normal beard came first, mullah beard came second and clean shaven came last. It was also known that men with beards were most healthy and masculine looking. Islam does it once again! Source: http://www.ehbonline.org/article/S1090-5138%2813%2900022-6/abstract
(salam) I've applied to more than a dozen security contractors for jobs in the US, and none of them allow me to be employed with a beard (they said they'll overlook a moustache though...). I looked into Ayatullah Sistani's website and found this http://www.sistani.org/index.php?p=855722&id=1136 Question :Is it permissible to shave beard, if one is faced with an unavoidable or a difficult situation? Answer :A Muslim is allowed to shave his beard, if he is compelled to do so or if he is forced to shave it for medical reasons, etc. It also allowed if he fears harm to his life by not shaving or if growing the beard would put him in difficulty (for example, if it becomes a cause of ridicule and humiliation that is not normally tolerable by a Muslim). Does this count as a "difficult" situation? I am pressed for money and time, as well as running out of options given the state of the economy... Also, one of the main reasons they don't allow beards is because the gas masks used by security companies and the police force will not seal if there is facial hear present, except for a little stubble. Please help me out here folks...
