Translated by Abu Afnaan Muhammad Abdullah hafizhahullaah
Is it permissible for the person living in Europe to shorten his beard if his beard has caused him a problem finding work?
Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan hafizhahullaah:
Adhere to the Sunnah in any location on Earth and do not look to please the people and complying with them. Adhere to the Sunnah regarding the beard and other aspects of the Sunnah and do not abandon anything from your religion in order to please the people. This is AI-Mudaahanah (the type of flattery which has been forbidden).
