Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen was asked:


“Does shortening some of the hair and not other parts enter into the Qaza’ which is prohibited?”


“No, verily Qaza’ is shaving some of the head and not other parts”. End translation. [Kanz uth-Thameen Fi Su’alaat Ibn Sunayd no. 716 pg. 166]

Translator’s Note:

The Shaikh’s fatwa above should be understood to mean that which does not enter into imitating the disbelievers since the Prophet (ﷺ) said:

من تشبه بقوم فهو منهم

He who imitates any people (in their actions) is considered to be one of them

[Saheeh Sunan Abi Dawood no. 4031]
