Day Questions

Is it permissible to have a long beard? And at what length should you stop growing it?

It is allowed to have a long beard. It is not recommended to have it longer than the length of a hand fist.

Surah Baqarah, verse 62, states: "Verily those who believed, and those who are Jews, and the Christians, and the Sabeans - whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, and does good deeds, shall have their rewards from their Lord. They will have nothing to fear or to be grieved for." This verse clearly indicates that non-Muslims can enter Heaven and attain salvation in the Hereafter. A person who has been raised in remote and distant places cannot learn about Islam and its teachings, so how can he go to Hell? This will be against the justice of Allah Almighty. Please could you address these issues.

<p style="text-align: left;">There is no doubt that Almighty Allah, after He sent the Messenger and asked people to believe him and act upon the ruling of the religion, has established the evidences to prove the truth of the message, so He will reward those who obey and accept the call, and He will judge those who did not accept and did not have an excuse. As for those who had valid excuses for their non-acceptance, like the lack of available evidences or because of lack of sanity, Almighty Allah will judge them accordingly, since He "wrongeth not even of the weight of an ant" (4:40). However, we cannot determine those who are excused and those who are not, and one should search for the right religion. Allah Almighty knows the circumstances and the intentions of His slaves. We, as humans, are only aware of the apparent behavior of people.<br />The verse that you were referring to, that talks about the believers in previous religions, is interpreted in many religious texts to be referring to the believers of those religions before the emergence of Islam. Some narrations indicate that the subject of this verse are those like Salman the Persian and similar believers who believed in undistorted religions before Islam.<br />This is the very clear message from the verse, which is consistent with the teachings of the rest of the Quran. The interpretation that you have chosen is inconsistent with the message of the rest of the Quran.</p>
