    You mean he shaves his moustache and NOT his beard right?

    I highly doubt Mufti sahb shaves his beard.


    But Alhamdulillah, I had the good fortune of meeting Mufti sahb when he came to Chicago. And by meet I really mean I had a chance to shake his hand. As brother abuhajira explained, Mufti sahb seems like a very humble person. After he gave bayan at Jame masjid in Chicago (there must have been at least over 500 people there), there were atleast 100-150 ppl afterwards who went up to him to shake his hand. As far as I could tell, Mufti sahb made eye contact with each and every one of them, and gave each one a very heartfelt smile. That might not sound like a lot, but when you're surrounded by a horde of people who want to meet you, to make each one feel like a special individual instead of a face in the crowd, in my opinion, is something truly special. May Allah (swt) increase Mufti sahb in his knowledge, and may He give him barkat in his life.

    Alhamdullilah he sounds like a very nice person.
    I live in South Africa but have not had the opportunity of meeting him, maybe one day Inshalallah

    On a critical note if any one here speaks to him again please ask him why they changed the website to the new one which is pathetic in terms of its user friendliness.
    Also is there someone who does editting for the website some of the spelling and grammer found on the site is pathetic.

    Please BRING BACK THE BLUE AND WHITE WEBSITE

    So when you did shake his hand, had he his beard shaved?

    Default My bad

    Looking back at the question it was stupid for being asked (by myself). There is no way he would not have a full fist length beard, just by looking at askimam.com

    Ok here is some clarification on part of my dear Mufti Sahib, May Allah increase his shadow over us, Amin.

    Hazrat Mufti Sahib has a full length beard which at most times when I have noticed is beyond one fist. I am not entirely sure whether he trims it down to one fist or not but considering that he does Umrah quite regularly I think he trims them at that time.

    His mustaches are mostly trimmed and often shaved as in the Mustahab Hanafi view.

    He keeps a faint smile on his lips even when he is silent.

    I have seen him angry(well worried) at times regarding some students, even then he does not lose his calm. whatever dicisoin he makes he simply states it..for eg once I saw him getting angry at a student for continuous absence from classes etc... he said to the reponsible teacher.. "Please deduct 20% of his marks from finals, so the only way for him to proceed to next year would be to study hard for those 80%" he said so and then said to the student in question, "I tried to give you as much leeway as I could.. now its upto you."

    On the other hand he is very very laxed to the students.once a foreign student said to him that he cant do Urdu in studies, so he said.. "then dont do it.." the student couldnt find any other answer and came back to the class. after the student left I asked him, you gave him ijaza just like that.. he said, "Let him excell in whatever he can, who knows gaining his ground in something else will keep him among the teachers and later make a gem out of him"...

    Finally, they had to change the server for askimam because of technical dificulties. I understand the new view is way bad, but it would be better for you to send that comment through email to the webmanager. InshAllah they will do something about it.

    BTW, mufti Saheb is of the idea to change the webpage into "Red / Yellow and Green" what do you think?? Or better yet any of you people who have free time on their hand can come up with a template for his web and I will pass it by him...
