Ibn `Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) said:
The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) forbade shaving a part of
the head.

Ibn `Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saw a boy, some portion
of whose head was shaved and some of it was left out. He prohibited them from that and said, "
Shave the whole of it
or leave the whole of it
This order of Prophet (PBUH) was based on the reason that that hair-style was then in vogue among
the Jews and Christian priests and ascetics. This style was also popular with the group which was given to mischief
and disobedience. This is, however, permissible in exceptional circumstances. In any case, either one should shave
the hair completely or keep them in such a style that there is no resemblance with women.

`Abdullah bin Ja`far (May Allah be pleased with them) said: The Prophet (PBUH) gave respite for three days
to the family of Ja`far (after his martydom). Then he came and said, "Don't weep for my brother after this day.'' He
said, "
Bring all of my nephews to me.
'' We were accordingly brought as if we were chickens. Then he said, "
Call for
me a barber.
'' He directed him to shave our heads which he did.
[Abu Dawud].
Ja`far was the cousin of the Prophet (PBUH) and he was martyred in the battle of Mu'tah. Although
martyrdom is an honour but even then the bereaved family does feel the shock of the loss. For this reason, the
Prophet (PBUH) permitted them to give vent to their grief for three days. It should not, however, be taken to mean
that he allowed them to lament and wail, because that is prohibited. What he actually allowed them was the natural
weeping which does occur when people come for condolence and speak of the deceased. Such expression of grief is
permissible after a period of three days also.
Therefore, what the Prophet (PBUH) had advised them was not in the nature of unlawful but natural. The children of
the deceased called themselves "
'' as they were greatly enervated by the tragedy. This Hadith has been
mentioned here to confirm the validity of shaving the hair of the head, especially of children, although keeping
bobbed hair is more meritorious because the Prophet (PBUH) himself did so. Bobbed hair are cut short and allowed
to hang loosely.
