KP Hairdressers Ban Stylish Beards for Being Unislamic

If you are one of those Arturo Vidal or Paul Pogba fans, or at least their beard/haircut’s, then you should probably stay away from barbers in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Hairdressers Association has banned styling the beards calling them un-Islamic.

The president of the Association, in a press conference, said that the decision was made after consulting with the religious scholars. According to him, the scholars told that since beard is Sunnah, people aren’t allowed to make “jokes” about it (maybe the word joke is used for styling here).

The president said;

We made the decision after consulting religious scholars. 99 percent barbers in KP will follow the decision.

Civil administration in several districts has already banned stylish beards. Numerous district administrations of Buner, Swabi and Swat etc have already sent out notifications in this regard.

The president of barbers’ association says that this decision was made keeping the religious point of view in mind. There was no pressure as such that led to this decision, the president said.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government hasn’t made any decision of such kind at official level though.

What do you have to say about this decision? Should people have freedom of choosing what they want with their beards or should the religious ethics be kept in mind? Let us know in the comments.


  • It is totally a personal preference and people pay hairdressers for the service. Even If its un-islamic (that I don’t think is the case) then gunah is upon the one who requested, not the stylist.

    • Neither I am in favor or against the article or stance of KP but by your statement I would like to ask one things, What if someone wants to buy liquor?? Will the gunnah be only on the one who is buying it or seller will be equally responsible ??

      • You are right. If the services provided by one are completely [email protected] without a doubt, both of them are gunahgaar for the simple fact that he (the one providing services) is facilitating the other person.

  • then why not hairstyles??? please somebody tell him islamic hairstyle too… beards may to ISlam yad a jata hai, did he knows k balon ki sunnat kia hai??? follow krna hai to phir pora kro baal bhi sunnat k rakho which is bech se mang and lenght aprox to neck…

  • Dariun main lagay raho aur Ameriki Drones say martay raho. Ilm to kabhi Hasil karna naheen.
