QUESTION:

With reference to Question and Answer No. 115 in the book on Contemporary
Legal Rulings in Shi'i Law  (in accordance with the  rulings (fatawa) of
Ayatullah Al-Uzma Al-Seyyid 'Ali Al-Husayni Al-Seestani Dama-Dhilluhu) and
translated into English by Br. Hamid Mawani sates: 

Q. Some men shave their beard and leave some hair on the chin alone.  Is
this sufficient by the Shari'ah?

A. (It is not sufficient).   FM, p.434. Does it mean that wearing beard on
the chin only is not acceptable and by that defination a person would lose
his adaalat?


ANSWER

My understanding of this Question is that it refers to people who shave the
beard leaving only some hair on the chin i.e. when one sees the hair on the
chin, one would not call it a beard.

However, if one leaves a proper beard on the chin (not just some hair), then 
this would  suffice according to the shari'a. Thus one would not lose his 'adala 

And Allah knows best

Liyakatali
