  • How does one get a Beard!

    :salams

    To cut a long story short, I haven't got a beard. Zilch. Nada. Not because I shave on the regs and I'm refusing to fulfil the sunnah or denying its obligation on the rijaal but simply because I have pretty much NO facial hair.

    Now, I really couldn't care less whether I looked pious or not but having something to stroke whilst in deep cogitation would be excellent. Oh and fulfilling the sunnah would be nice too.

    I've been told shaving stimulates hair growth but after shaving what little hair I have (i.e my skin) I have finally resorted to the you, my brothers (perhaps sisters too...some have mini-beards going on masha'Allah) for some serious practical advice.

    Allahu Musta3aan!

    :wswrwb:

    first of all, how dare you assume i have a mini-beard, even though i dont, i'll help you nonetheless:

    step 1: cleanse your face by massaging skin gently but thoroughly. your wife or sister's cleanser should be fine.

    step 2: buy grass seeds from home depot and sprinkle across your face and mustache area. sprinkle water on top.

    step 3: sit out in the sun for a couple hours - dont forget to apply sunscreen to avoid harmful UV rays

    step 4: perform on a daily basis for 7 days. Dont forget to water your face.

    And there you'll have lush green grass or beard :up:

      wa alaykum asalam

      I thought it was a case of leaving the beard ( or the lack of it) to grow naturally including if you don't have one either.

      To leave it as it is and isn't 'forcing' it to grow, unnatural .

      I've always wondered.

        Some people just can't grow a beard...or at least it takes a while for the first signs of any facial hair to appear. My bro didn't get his mini goatee until he was 25...and only after he shaved it over and over again.

        I personally don't see how shaving it to make it grow is OK...I mean, the ends does not justify the means. Why sin (even if you mean for it to be temporary) to grow a beard? It's great that you end up following the sunnah and all, but what if you die before then? Then you're just someone who's known to have shaved...not a good thing IMHO.

        If it's meant to grow, it'll grow.

            well my beard has just started growing (im 13) and I got this big strand of beard growing lol

            bro there's a hadith that there was a sahaaba who used to have only one strand of beard and the angels used to play with that one strand subhanAllah so don't worry if there isn't any beard growing on u, just don't shave it inshaAllah :up:

              It's different for everyone. Just make du'a and rub your chin a few times and I'm sure you'll start sprouting some facial hair. :up:

                  assalamu alaikum

                  the issue is not about having a long beard etc, it is about following the prophet saw when he said grow your beards and trim your moustaches, if you look at the words being used in arabic they indicate that you should leave the beard and not remove anything from it

                  so by you shaving your beard or lack of it at the moment, in order to get hair growth, then this is completely prohibited, because the obligation is to leave the beards to grow, not that yoy make a beard grow, as there is no compulsion in religion

                      The beard issue has got to do with genetics and hormones, If your father and most of the male members in the family has it then insha' Allah you will, but maybe your hormones are late. give it a while it will grow insha' Allah, we had a friend like you, he grew it at 26.

                        That's very heartening to hear. I guess I must be patient...as with all things in life.

                          If you are under 25, don't panic, it might just be that you're body's not ready to grow one yet...... men are not fully grown until they are in their mid 20's beard can grow any time from age 13 to age 25

                          HOWEVER people from certain ethnic origins really struggle to grow a beard and may not grow one at all...... e.g. people from some parts of Africa, people from some parts of East Asia. If you are from one of these places and the men in your family (i.e. blood relations) don't have beards or have only very sparse beards, then you may not be able to get much of a beard. However if the men in your family all have good beards then inshaAllah you should be able to grow one, just be patient.

                          Also, you can tell the difference between a man who shaves and a man who does not naturally have much of a beard. cause the one who shaves gets stubble and you can see that.

                            There's no point in shaving it to make it grow faster, when you have nothing there in the first place.

                            Be patient,

                            or you could buy one of those fake beards they use in those terrible pakistani dramas. LOL!

                              Shaveing does not make it grow faster it only makes a illusion that makes the hair strand look longer. Insha'Allah you will have a very big beard :).
