Answered by: Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah
What would be the treatment of a person in the hereafter if a person dies with his face shaved? I have heard one hadith in which says the prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam will not look at that man’s face and he will not enter paradise directly but with be put into hell.
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
There are no ahadith that tell us that the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam would turn his face away from a person who has shaved his beard in the Hereafter.
However, there is a possibility of this as the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam turned his face away from the two coveys sent by Kisra whose beards were shaved.
Saaiduna Abu Hurairah Radiallahu Anhu reports that the ruler of Yemen, appointed by the Persian emperor Kisra, sent two envoys to the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam. When they came into his presence, he noticed that they had shaved their beards and let their mustaches grow big. Hating their ugly appearance, he turned his face away and said, “Woe be to you, who told you to do so?” They replied: “Our Lord (Kisra) did!” The Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam responded: “But my Lord has commanded me to lengthen my beard and trim my mustaches.” (Narrated by Ibn Jarir Tabari, extracted from Wujub Ifaul Lihyah p.66)
