What exactly goes through the mind of a guy as he walks down the street with Osama Bin Laden style beard? Especially when they're living in the US!
Frankly, I don't see any difference between this guy, and the girl who walks down the street in reserved society in Jordan showing off her g-string and bottom back tattoo!
Both are defying the society, one thinking that he's getting closer to god, and the other is attracting males but also defying the norms in her society.
Both are wrong!
It puzzles the simple Americans why would a man wear a "dress" and walk around with a huge beard that just defies all the laws of hygiene!
I'm not saying these people who carry around their gigantic beards are bad or anything. I'm just saying they look ugly, or straight out of a prehistoric human picture in a science book!
In fact, even prehistoric men have been shown to attempt and cut their facial hair, especially after the ice age was over!
I know that that prophet Mohammad PBUH have "encouraged" having beards, but that's NOT a law, and carrying a beard doesn't bring you any closer to god, nor does it show how pious or devout you are. It totally lost it's meaning, or reason! It is just an ungodly facial growth that is being universally considered unsanitary! A sign of nothing more than social stubborn defiance!
I know ... I know ... People are free to do what ever they damn want, consequently, I am free to view it as disgusting, unsanitary, meaningless, laziness and carelessness.
I think it's about time we all take a stand and reexamine what we really mean by... Sunnah! Because beards are becoming nothing more than a fashion statement. EXACTLY like the flashy g-strings!
