Hassan Shibly, a prominent Muslim activist and Attorney from America, is calling upon all Muslim men to grow their beards in response to rising hate attacks on Muslims and Islamophobia.
He is using the hashtag “#SunnahBeard” to inspire Muslim men to publicly display their attachment to the practices or Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. He has also encouraged them to do this as a sign of support towards Muslim woman who are generally on the receiving end of Islamophobic attacks due to their overt Islamic appearance.
He has however warned Muslims that it is not simply enough to display Islam on the outside through a beard, but also display Islam through our actions and character.
May Allah allow us to be proud of our faith and display it in the best of manners.
