WEDGE HAIR CUT
FASHION is indeed a very strange thing. What at one time is regarded as ridiculous by every ‘fashion conscious’ person, suddenly becomes very stylish and fashionable the next day, simply because some ridiculous pop star has adopted that silly ‘style’. Those who adopt those silly styles would have themselves laughed hysterically at any person who adopted that appearance before it suddenly became ‘fashion’. With the bombardment of the despicable Western culture, what is ridiculous has appeared to be desirable to some.
After all, a sick person does find bitter things to be sweet (and vice versa).
Among the silly types of ‘fashion’ is the cutting of the hair in such a manner that part of the head is almost shaven and part of it is not, known as the "wedge." Besides being ridiculous, this has also been forbidden in the Hadith. It is reported that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) saw a child whose head had been partly shaven and the rest of the head unshaven. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) prohibited them from that practice and said: "Either shave the head completely or do not shave any part of it"(Abu Dawood).
Cutting the hair in such a manner that the hair of part of the head is much shorter than the rest , though not actually shaven off, also falls within the purview of this Hadith.
Western culture seems to be at pains to oppose every aspect of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). May Allah Ta’ala save us from following those who OPPOSE Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). Aameen.
