Assalamualaikum Warahmathulahi Wabarakatuhu
Hijab is not only obligatory for women, it is also obligatory for men. But, in both the cases it’s different. For women, it’s the black colored clothing (covering the whole body, except palm, face and feet). But, the hijab for men is nothing but BEARD. And, today truly how many of them follow it. It’s the sunnah of ALLAH’S Apostle (Salallahu’Alayhiwassalam).
Narrated Ibn Umar (Radhiallahu’Anhu): ALLAH’s Apostle (Salallahu’Alayhiwassalam) said, “Cut the moustaches short and leave the beard (as it is). [Sahih Bukhari, Chater# 72, Vol# 7, Hadith# 781]
The above hadith clearly shows, that it’s the sunnah of prophet to cut short the moustaches and to leave the beard to a certain extend. And Prophet Muhammad (Salallahu’Alayhiwassalam) grew it thick enough. Hence, being his ummah (his followers) we must also follow it dear brothers. It’s Sunnah. And that’s the hijab for men, remember this. Now, let’s analyze why ALLAH ordered his slaves to have beard like Prophet Muhammad (Salallahu’Alyhiwassalam).
The recent researches prove that, the men having thick beard has 95% less chance of skin cancer (because beard and short moustaches would block UV rays), the also help reducing asthma (by catching/ blocking pollen or any other dusts, exposed to the face), beard would help in keeping one younger for a long period of time (because of less sun exposure), prevents for cold by keeping the body warm and the skin would always be moist because of the air circulation. ALHAMDHULILLAH. Look my dear brothers and sisters, how many benefits are there for growing beard i.e.., the hijab for men. ALLAH the All-Knowing has knowledge on everything and whatever he orders us to follow is just for our well fare. Hence, please keep up your hijab dear brothers. My dear sisters, don’t shout at your male members for their hijab (i.e.., beard), it’s a sunnah.
