Quoted from Slate:

"Islam emphasizes modesty and simplicity, but some of Mohammed's sayings (or hadith) recommend covering up gray hair with henna or a dye called katam. According to the hadith of Sahih Bukhari, this would set Muslims apart from Jews and Christians, who (according to Mohammed) didn't dye their hair. The prophet said to avoid black hair coloring, however, probably because you weren't supposed to try to mimic a natural hue.

The Quran says nothing on the subject of keeping beards, but believers are urged to follow the example of the prophets, who all had them. Mohammed in particular maintained a neat, groomed appearance, and scholars believe he trimmed his facial hair. The general guideline from Sahih Bukhari boils down to "Trim the mustache, keep the beard." Followers should cut their mustaches short enough that the skin above the upper lip is visible, and grow beards to at least a fistful in length. A longer beard isn't automatically better, though. According to one account in the hadith of Malik's Muwatta, the prophet sent a man with disheveled hair out of the mosque to groom his beard. Muslims must also refrain from trimming their hair during the hajj, or pilgrimage to Mecca—at least until they've walked seven times around the Kaaba. "

Muhammad was Irish?

THAT would really be prohibited in Islam. I don't think menstruating women are even allowed to speak to men, let alone touch them.

But I'm sure some MA will show me how I'm wrong.

Its a religious thing they die their hands and finger nails also. They die their goats red too, Probably just to mark them, so they dont get mixed up with other goats

And this has what to do with a thread on dying beards?

Er, take another look at the OP's picture. Their beards are a kind of bright red/magenta. A color not normally found in nature, except for tropical fish. Look at the old guy in the back left of the pic. Yep, that guy.
I am not saying they didnt dye their beards - BUT - to say its not found in nature isnt true - cause this is my beard 5 months ago - and it is fire red

It's a genetic remnant of Irish and British troops occupying Afghanistan back in the Rudyard Kipling era.

Proof positive that they did not just bugger each other and the local sheep.

Wouldn't they get themselves beheaded for that?

I mean if just NAMING a teddy bear after him and drawing cartoons of him can get their burkhas in a bunch, I can only imagine how creating a likeness of him in themselves must offend the most die-hard Muslims.



It seems to be that Muslims are akin to our liberals in that they can can do whatever they want, its only a beheading offense when a western non Muslim does it.

Think Bill Clinton and sexual harassment

That is why they are angry. They follow the IRISH Muhammad and yet are not allowed to drink. We need to get them drunk and they will be a lot friendlier.

It's fairly common for them to naturally have red in their beards. Hell, I'm scot/irish/german/italian and I've got streaks of red in my beard. It's weird, but it looks cool imo.

I think it has to do with emulating the prophet. I even saw old men do it in Somalia.

I don't know about Afghans, but there are natural red heads in Iraq.
