beard in Islam 480x500 The Status of the beard according to the Islam

Assalaamo alaikum,
Having beard and letting the beard grow is necessary or not, as it is also a sunnah. Is it a sin to shave the beard? and how much circumcision is necessary if somebody keeps himself clean and do ghusl properly and make istinzaa thoroughly clean? If having beard is a choice than having circumcision is choice or not?

Wa alaykumus Salaam
The keeping of the beard to the length of one fist is not a sunnah but rather it is waajib according to the hanafi math hab. To shorten it less than that is regarded as fisq and a person who does it will be deprived of the intercession of Rasulullaah Salallaahu alayhi wasallam. When the emmisaries of kisra came to Rasulullaah salallaahu alayhi wasallam with their big moustaches and shaved faces, Rasulillaah saaws refused to even look at them, though they were kuffar. How then of a muslim? Rasulullah salallaahu alayhi wasallam made it clear to them that” My lord has ordered me to lenghten my beard and trim my moustache”. Therefore to think the beard a choice is wrong.

As for circumcition it is a sunnah of all the ambiyaa A.S. and therefore regarded as a natural trait and an compulsory afct..

Yes the beard and circumcition are both the same but there is no choice for us in it.
Wallaahu a3lam.
