Question Muslims growing a beard with no moustache??

Iíve often found this intriguing. Why do some devout muslims grow a full beard, but sport a clean shaven moustache?? I find this rather strange. Does Islam propagate this practice?

Example Below: Pakistani Cricketer Saeed Anwar turned to preaching & following Islam strictly after the death of his 4 year old daughter in 2001. He sports this look:

Because that's what Biblical God asked Abraham (same as Ibrahim) to do....refer to Old Testament.

Even orthodox Jews have this practice....for Jews, Christians and Muslims...Abraham is respected as a patriarch and the first prophet

Re: Muslims growing a beard with no moustache??

in islam most of the stuff people do is for how they will be benifitted in the afterlife .
For this .. they have a point system :P earning sawabs
keeping a beard , no mustache , redding it >> diffrentiating with the kafirs >> earn more points ..sawab , go to heaven , get more goodies, water , houris there.

Arrow Re: Muslims growing a beard with no moustache??

Dhuru... I haven't seen any Jews practising such customs...

I found the link below. It says "Male muslims must trim the moustache, but not trim the beard, i.e. leave all facial hair to grow as Allah swt has designed it."

Re: Muslims growing a beard with no moustache??

Actually the funda is:
This world is rough like your beard and the other world will be mad as smooth as the space between the nose and the upper lip...even though for other people it will be as rough as mustache...wot sey?

Re: Muslims growing a beard with no moustache??

I notice that majority of things with muslims are exactly opposite of hindus as in India. Hindus pray to sun god facing east in the morning, muslims face west, majority of hindus keep a mustache but no beard, muslims keep a beard but no mustache, hindus wash hands starting from palms towards elbows, muslims start washing their hands starting elbows moving towards palms, muslims circumcise hindus dont. even the toilet seats in muslim households face the wall opposite the door, while those in hindu houses face the door........
any more?

even their Prophet's name is opposite to our Avatar's name...

Krishna is called MadanMohan (that is no mad, no moh)

Theirs is called Mohamad (having both moh and mad)

I totally second that....have seen our Indian muslims after coming to Middle East start growing beard and this gives them an advantage in terms of job, pay, promotion, etc.....no one will refuse a brethern...PWC's office is next to mine and surprisingly these young Chartered Accountants (from India and Pakistan) have started growing beards (with or w/o a mouche)....phir raat ko dance bar mein daaru peeke malaa phenkenge...

Going by your foolish assumption, all well shaved brats follow the "pig cult". Stop being sarcastic over religion and try to find out the real reason for the practices.......... There are billions of practices in "Hinduism and Christianity" which can be joked off. For instance, why do pujaris shave their head leaving a "tingi" ya that long straight piece of hair hanging from their bald heads!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hindus pray by joining their palms, muslims pray by keeping them open. Hindus pray standing up or doing a full body pranam (sashtang), muslims do it sitting but not standing or sashtang.
