Reported `Amr bin Shu`aib, on the authority of his father and grandfather that the Prophet (PBUH) said, "
not pluck out grey hair, for they are the Muslim's light on the Day of Resurrection
[Abu Dawud, At-Tirmidhi and An-Nasa'i].
Plucking of gray hair, usually a sign of old age, should be avoided because besides the benefit which
one gets from them in the Afterlife, they are a means of respect in this world.

`Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
He who does
something contrary to our way (i.e., Islam) will have it rejected
Contrary to our way
'' means such acts which have neither been allowed or justified nor can be
justified by any principle of Shari`ah. Thus, this Hadith makes it abundantly clear that all heresies and violations of
Shari`ah will not be accepted by Allah. Every Muslim is required to be a faithful follower of Divine orders rather
than a heretic and a rebel.
