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
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.
(Reuters) – A city in China’s restive western region of Xinjiang has banned people with head scarves, veils and long beards from boarding buses, as the government battles unrest with a policy that critics said discriminates against Muslims.
Xinjiang, home to the Muslim Uighur people who speak a Turkic language, has been beset for years by violence that the government blames on Islamist militants or separatists.
