Can the hair that is on the right and left side of the soul patch be removed/trimmed



In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful




According to Hanafi jurists, the beard is that which is on the jawbone1. Since the soul patch is a single small patch of facial hair just below the lower lip and above the chin2 and not on the jawbone it will be permissible to cut it and the hair on its sides.



Only Allah knows best
