On Prohibition of Shaving a part of Head

1638. Ibn `Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) said: The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) forbade shaving a part of the head.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

1639. Ibn `Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) said: The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) saw a boy, some portion of whose head was shaved and some of it was left out. He prohibited them from that and said, “Shave the whole of it or leave the whole of it.”
[Muslim].

1640. `Abdullah bin Ja`far (May Allah be pleased with them) said: The Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) gave respite for three days to the family of Ja`far (after his martydom). Then he came and said, “Don’t weep for my brother after this day.” He said, “Bring all of my nephews to me.” We were accordingly brought as if we were chickens. Then he said, “Call for me a barber.” He directed him to shave our heads which he did.
[Abu Dawud].

1641. `Ali (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) prohibited a woman from shaving her head.
[An-Nasa’i].
