The Defect Is Not In The Beard
Shaykh Muqbil Ibn Haadi al-Waadi’ee (may Allah have mercy upon him) stated:
When you see a person with a beard being a liar or when you see a person with a beard being a betrayer or when you see a person with a beard being a thief, (then know) the defect is not in the beard. Rather the defect is in the person who has the beard. As for the beard (in and of itself), there’s no defect in it. It is from the characteristics of the Fitrah (the natural disposition). It is also from the Sunan of the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu alayhi wa alaa aalihi wa sallam) which he commanded with and obligated.
