The Islamic scholar Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips said “It is fundamentally haraam (fobidden) to put your children in non-Muslim school”. He also said that it is fard (mandatory) to keep a fist length beard. What do you guys think about that?
These western scholars exploit the ignorant in ways recognizable to Muslims all over the World. They differ in their subject matter expertise, but .. hey it doesn’t matter! It doesn’t matter that beard is not fard in Islam per centuries of practice. It is considered Sunnah. Not fard.
The fard per Islamic laws as practiced, there are 32 of them. There are 6 in Iman, 5 in Islam [the one all Muslims know as tenets of Islam) , 4 in ablution before prayer, 3 in Ghusl, 2 in tayammum, 12 in Namaz known as Salat in Arabic. None include beard.
Muslims often confuse fard with sunnah. But when you are talking about bullshit, less or more, as one our own intellectual scholars have coined the phrase… “What difference does it make!”
Whatever the truth is, I look forward to have a hairstyle and be clean shaven like Sam Harris. His face is so fucking rational, isn’t it?
