The Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Grey hair is the light of a Muslim (on the Day of Resurrection). No Muslim turns grey in Islam but for every grey hair he will receive one reward and his status will be raised by one degree .”
[Al-Baihaqi – Classed as Sahih by Sh al-Albaani in Silsilat al- Ahaadeeth al-Saheehah (1243)]

Philly rapper Freeway has invested in a product close to his roots, literally.
The 36-year-old rapper has debuted his contribution to manscaping with the release of his All Natural Best Beard cream.
Packaged in silver tins, the handcrafted creams come in an assortment of scents, from sweet blueberry to the limited-edition holiday spice that smells like nutmeg.
As of late, men have been saying so long to the chin strap, the goatee, and the soul patch as more have been growing full-on thick beards of glory.
Donning a “Beards R Us” T-shirt as he peruses the apparel in Status Shop on South Street, Freeway has been a source of beard-spiration since he exploded onto the hip-hop scene in the early 2000s.
“I’ve always been known throughout the music industry for my beard,” said Freeway, 36.
The beard was kept by all the prophets that Allah (God) sent the mankind, Nuh (Noah) Ibrahim (Abraham), Isma’il (Ishmael) Ishaq (Isaac) moses, Harun (Aaron), Yahya (John), Jesus and Muhammad and all the other prophets (peace and blessings of Allah be upon them all). Although Muslim men follow the command of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and grow their beards, here are some amazing facts researchers have stated regarding health benefits of having a beard:
Prevents Skin Cancer
Reduction of Asthma and Allergy Symptoms
Stay Young, forever!
Stave Off Illness

All praise is for Allaah, Lord of the Worlds; and prayers and peace be upon the Master of the Prophets and Messengers, and his household, family and companions; whomsoever follows them with goodness until the Day of Recompense.
Allaah the Mighty and Majestic has made the figure of the human being very well and pleasing. As He said, “We have certainly created the human being in the best of moulds.” [Sooratut-Teen 95:4] 
The sunnah is to Grow (long)
An-Nisaa’ (5232) reported from al-Baraa’ that he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) had a thick beard; according to another report, he had a bushy beard; according to another report, he had a wide beard.
Al-Nawawi said: the best is to leave it as it is and not touch it or shorten it at all. (Tuhfat al-Ahwadhi, 8/39).
All of these ahaadeeth indicate that it is obligatory to leave the beard alone and let it grow, and that it is obligatory to trim the moustache. This is what is obligatory as taught and enjoined by the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). This was the example set by the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and his companions (may Allaah be pleased with them), to be different from the mushrikeen and to avoid resembling them or resembling women.
Meet Christopher who from a sensationally young age was searching for meaning in life but after finding the truth he drifted off. Also we’ll be talking about a UFC fighter who accepted Islam and how to also prevent cancer by letting your beard grow.
