Q. Is it permissible to cut the hair two lengths. This seems to be a fashion amongst Muslim males these days?
A. Cutting the hair two lengths is not permissible. It is the fashion of the Kuffaar. Why would a Muslim want to cut his hair in an un-Islamic style? Why would a Muslim wish to adopt a Kaafir hairstyle when he claims to be a follower of Nabi Muhammed Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam? Is the Sunnat not sufficient for him?
Furthermore, cutting the hair two lengths makes a person look ugly and despicable from an Islamic viewpoint. They think they look ‘handsome’ with their different lengths and their obnoxious western hairstyles, but they look pathetically unpleasant and extremely unsightly in terms of the Shariah. They make themselves look stupid when they mimic the Kuffaar in their appearance. It is Waajib for a Muslim to adopt a Sunnat appearance! It is not permissible to emulate the ways and styles of the Kuffaar. Thus, it is Haraam to cut the hair two lengths or to adopt the haircuts of the Kuffaar.
And Muslim females should lengthen their hair. It is absolutely Haraam for a Muslim woman to cut her hair even a little. Nowadays, ‘Muslim’ men want to look like the Kuffaar men and ‘Muslim’ women want to shorten their hair and look like men. Such people are accursed. Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: “Allah curses men who imitate women and women who imitate men.”
