Im planning on growing a beard (not there yet, but getting closer everyday) so I've refrained from trimming any hair on my face except the moustache of course, which is a sunnah to trim. But I've also been trimming that little tuft of hair the grows under your lower lip. I never thought anything of it, until tonight when it came into my mind that this may be considered part of the beard, and I might be sinning by trimming these hairs.
So I did a bit of research and it seems I was right, its apparently part of the beard.
I understand that its very bad to trim the beard less than fist length.
The one who trims/shaves his beard is considered a faasiq
Im feeling very at unrest right now. Have I committed a major sin by trimming those hairs, even if I did not know the ruling on them?
