عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ “ مَنْ كَانَ لَهُ شَعْرٌ فَلْيُكْرِمْهُ ” .
Narrated Abu Hurayrah:
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: He who has hair should honour it.
Reported by Abu Dawud and graded fair by Shaykh Albany rahimahullah
عَنْ جَابِرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، قَالَ أَتَانَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَرَأَى رَجُلاً شَعِثًا قَدْ تَفَرَّقَ شَعْرُهُ فَقَالَ ” أَمَا كَانَ يَجِدُ هَذَا مَا يُسَكِّنُ بِهِ شَعْرَهُ ” . وَرَأَى رَجُلاً آخَرَ وَعَلَيْهِ ثِيَابٌ وَسِخَةٌ فَقَالَ ” أَمَا كَانَ هَذَا يَجِدُ مَاءً يَغْسِلُ بِهِ ثَوْبَهُ ” .
Narrated Jabir ibn Abdullah:
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) paid visit to us, and saw a dishevelled man whose hair was disordered. He said: Could this man not find anything to set ‘tidy’ his hair?” He saw another man wearing dirty clothes and said: Could this man not find something to wash his garments with.
Reported by Abu Dawud and others. Graded authentic by Albany rahimahullah.
Third Hadith :
عَنْ أَبِي قَتَادَةَ قَالَ : كَانَتْ لَهُ جُمَّةٌ ضَخْمَةٌ ، فَسَأَلَ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَأَمَرَهُ أَنْ يُحْسِنَ إِلَيْهَا ، وَأَنْ يَتَرَجَّلَ كُلَّ يَوْمٍ
On the authority of Abu Qatadah that he had long thick hair. He asked the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa salam (about it) and he told him to take care of it and comb it every day.
Reported by an-Nasaa’e.
Now unfortunately, it has become a fashion to leave one’s hair disordered and matted and Allah’s aid is sought.
A Side Note: As for the narration:
كان لا يفارقه المشط لا في سفر ولا في حضر
“A comb never left the possession of the Prophet (salahu alayhi wasalam) whether he was traveling or present (in Madinah)”
Then it has been established to be a weak narration, as has been stated by Shaykh Albany rahimahullah.
