Peace be upon the mother of believers, Khadija ♥ , the first* supporter of the beloved Prophet Muhammed (P). We offer our condolences to the prophet (P) and his pure household (AS) , in her death anniversary.
نعزي رسول الله (صلى الله عليه و اله و سلم) ،و أهل بيتهِ الطاهرين (عليهم السلام) ، بذكرى وفاة الناصر الأول لرسول الله (من النساء) ، أم المؤمنين خديجة الكبرى ، سلام الله عليها و على روحها الطاهره.
*She was the first supporter from women.
As a 21 year old brother, a beard is required in Islam. Though it doesn’t need to be long at all, I’m trying to grow mine out as long as possible lol. I think it will look pretty cool if kept well groomed ^_^
Allamah Majlisi (May Allah have mercy on his soul) quotes in a narration, in Vol. 16 of his book Bihar Al-Anwar (Seas of Illuminations) on the authority of Ibn Masud in which the Holy Prophet of Islam Muhammad (saww) states:
“When Allah, the Blessed, the Merciful, accepted the repentance of Adam (saww), Gabriel (AS) came to Adam (saww) & said,
“May Allah grant you a (long) life & bestow beauty upon you”
Adam (saww) then said,
“I understand what you mean by long life, however, I do not understand what you mean by beauty”
[Thus, in thanking Allah, his Lord & Master] he went into prostration & when he raised his head from it, he made a supplication & said,
“O, Allah, Increase in me the beauty [that you have promised me]”,
soon after he had made the supplication a beautiful beard appeared on his radiant face. When Gabriel (AS) witnessed what had happened, he touched the beard of prophet Adam (saww) & said,
“This is in response to the supplication you made to your Lord, & it has been granted to you & your male offspring till the day of reckoning”.
So how many brothers here are growing out a beard =] ?
