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.

For everyone that’s trying to dress sexy these days. I searched in the dictionary about the word and this is the definition of sexy: “Provoking or intended to provoke sexual interest”. Let’s think about the definition of the word sex-y.
The word cut in 2 pieces already tells you what it really means. If you are trying your best to dress “sexy”, what you are actually trying to do is, to show people that you are somebody that someone else would have sexual interaction with. So you are inviting the other to raise their sexual lust in them.
