    I have a quick question : Is keeping a beard that is sparse and partially patchy also sunnah wajib ? I am more caucasian looking that middle eastern
    and therefore I dont have dense beard growth ,people need like 8 hours to get a 5 o Clock shadow and I need a month for the hair to show up on my cheeks.
    My goatee is pretty dense.But when I grow my beard for like 3 Months ,it gets a shape but not like the everyday beard you see and I get the feeling that
    it makes me look unkept because my hair is thin on the cheeks.

    So the question is ,is it still compulsory to not shave it off and leave it as it is ? As mentioned ,my goatee is dense but my cheeks very very thin in hair
    shaving is haraam .. and masha Allah that you are following this sunnah ... keep it up and may Allah make u steadfast

    the most important thing is not to look middle eastern but to look like a muslim

    Actually I hate shaving ,I see no logical reason behind it.It gives me razor burns (even when I use a trimmer).And the skin of the people who can grow dense beards
    just looks weird when they shave ,I mean why do they see facial hair as "dirt" ? Get a clean look they say ,what a joke.

    The thing is that everytime I went to for a job interview they said I have to shave everything on my face too look "clean".
    So I thought maybe ,why should I put myself in hardship because of a few hair on my cheeks :playful:
    Ja, aber das ist gar keine gueltige Ausrede sich zu rasieren.

    Wassalam brother,

    Your beard is fine as it is, dont worry it wouldnt look untidy if its sparse.

    You can shave partially on the cheeks and thats it, all solved.

    Where does the concept of shaving even come into the picture?

    Yes, it's obligatory, it's haraam to shave.
