Letting the beard grow

Q: Some men have hair on their cheeks. Is it permissible for them to shave it?


A: Praise be to Allah Alone and may peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, his family and Companions!The hair on the cheeks is part of the beard, and thus it must not be shaved or cut, as the Prophet (peace be upon him) stated, Trim the moustache and let the beard grow to be contradictory to the Mushriks (polytheists). Among those who included the hair on the cheeks in their definitions of what constitutes the beard are the author of Al-Qamus and the author of Al-Lisan.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
