The Difference between Giving Up Sin and Being Made to Give Up Sin
Your corpse will not be able to cast lustful glances but that will not warrant one any reward from Allah Ta’ala, for the sacrifice of a corpse is not acceptable in His court. Allah Ta’ala wants us to become His, to sacrifice our desires, whims and fancies while hale and hearty,while still alive and able to commit those sins. Why are you waiting forthat time when death will reap your soul and you will be unable todisobey Allah? This will be termed, ‘being made to give up sins’ andnot ‘giving up sins’. Voluntarily giving up sins while the choice to commit them still exists within one will entail a lofty stage offriendship with Allah Ta’ala. Bear the burden of leaving sins. If onedesires to enjoy the pleasure of Allah’s pleasure, bear the burden andexperience that pleasure wherein the burden itself will no longer remain a burden.

Recently, a sticker was published from Khanqah Imdadia Ashrafia by the call of Hazratwala (Shaikh ul Arab Wal Ajam, Arif Billah Hazrat Maulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb damat barkartuhum), about the importance of beard in shariah and clarifying a common misunderstanding with regards to the law pertaining to the beard. It states:
COMMAND OF BEARD
To keep beard equal to one fist in length is not just Sunnah, but it is Wajib(Mandatory).
To shave beard or trim it less than one fist length is HARAM (strictly prohibited).
(Behisti Zewar, Chapter 11, Page 115)
Beard should be of one’s own fist length from all three sides (right, left and below the chin)
