  • I wanna get an Afro.

    Salam all!

    Brothers and Sisters, I looked in the mirror today....and thought.........about getting an Afro. :D

    For those who are unaware of what an Afro is please refer here >><<

    In my case I want to grow one....

    Ma'shallah I have a full head of jet black hair (its going to be gone by the time I'm 60 thanks to my dads genes!) and I've wanted to do something with it. I've stopped using Gel and Wax and have opted for the Au naturale look:inlove:

    I think it would be fan-tab-ulous to get an afro! I got the idea in my head when I noticed the hair I have now (it hasn't been cut) looked fluffy and curly..(gosh I sound like a woman) and noticed that an Afro would look pretty cool....

    Now on a MUCH more serious note, is this idea really Islamically feasible? I'm a teenager and not blessed with the knowledge that some may have of Islamic tenets(although I do endeavour to seek it out). I will definately NOT get an afro if it conflicts with what Islam says.

    Upon serious thinking I also noticed that my new hairstyle would probably get in the way of Wudhu for Salat and perhaps Salat itself!

    Some might think I'm just messing about with this thread but I am serious about it. If Islam says no, then I too will say No.

    I'm off to revise! Will be back at night!

    Takecare!

            “Fear your sins more than you fear the enemy as your sins are more dangerous to you than your enemy. We Muslims are only victorious over our enemy because their sins outnumber ours, not for any other reason. If our sins were equal to those of our enemy, then they would defeat us due to their superior numbers and resources.”
            ~ Umar bin Al-Khattab (RA)

                        Re: I wanna get an Afro.

                        From Islam QA (it was two part question, but I just put the one that was relevant to this topic.

                        And what hairstyles are disallowed specifically?

                        Praise be to Allaah.

                        With regard to the kinds of hairstyles that are forbidden, they are characterized by the following:

                        1 – al-Qaza’ (lit. tufts), which is where part of the head is shaved and part is left.

                        It was narrated from Ibn ‘Umar that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade al-qaza’.

                        Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5466; Muslim, 3959.

                        One of the narrators of this hadeeth defines al-qaza’ as shaving part of a child’s head and leaving some of his hair.

                        Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

                        With regard to shaving part of the head and leaving part, this is of varying degrees.

                        The worst is shaving the middle of the head and leaving the sides, as the Christian monks do.

                        After that comes shaving the sides and leaving the middle, as many of the foolish and worthless people do.

                        After that comes shaving the front of the head and leaving the back.

                        These three types all come under the heading of qaza’ which was forbidden by the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), but some of them are worse than others.

                        Ahkaam Ahl al-Dhimmah, 3/1294

                        2 – Imitating the kaafirs or immoral people.

                        There are many such hairstyles, some of which come under the heading of qaza’ – such as the “Marines” haircut, which is forbidden for two reasons, the fact that it is a kind of qaza’ and the fact that it is an imitation of the kuffaar. Some of them do not involve qaza’ but they are styles that belong to the kuffaar, such as making some of the hair stand up and letting the rest hang down, and so on.

                        This also includes every hairstyle that belongs to the kaafirs or immoral people, because it is not permissible for a Muslim to resemble them in that, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “Whoever imitates a people is one of them.”

                        Narrated by Abu Dawood, 4031. Classed as hasan by al-Haafiz ibn Hajar in Fath al-Baari, 10/271. its isnaad was classed as jayyid by Shaykh al-Islam in Iqtida’ al-Siraat al-Mustaqeem, p. 82.

                        Shaykh al-Islam said:

                        The least that we can say about this hadeeth is that it implies that it is haraam to imitate them, although the apparent meaning is that the one who imitates them is a kaafir, as in the verse (interpretation of the meaning):

                        “And if any amongst you takes them (as Awliyaa’), then surely, he is one of them”

                        [al-Maa’idah 5:51]

                        Iqtida’ al-Siraat al-Mustaqeem, p. 83.

                        Imitating foolish people.

                        These are hairstyles worn by some of the foolish people, which may be included in the categories mentioned above.

                        And Allaah knows best.
                        مَّن ذَا الَّذِي يُقْرِضُ اللّهَ قَرْضًا حَسَنًا فَيُضَاعِفَهُ لَهُ أَضْعَافًا كَثِيرَةً وَاللّهُ يَقْبِضُ وَيَبْسُطُ وَإِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ

                        "Who is he that will loan to Allah a beautiful loan, which Allah will double unto his credit and multiply many times?
                        It is Allah that giveth (you) Want or plenty, and to Him shall be your return."
                        Surah al-Baqarah
                        [2:245]

                              My father used to have an afro back in the 70's. Now he has a bald(ish) head.
                              We blame our time though we are to blame.
                              No fault has time but only us.
                              We scold the time for all the shame.
                              Did it have tongue, it would scold us.
