    brother just a few ahadith i managed to research.
    Sayyiduna Abdullah Ibn-e-Abbas (radi Allahu anhuma) reported that the Glorious Prophet of Islam (Sallall Laahu Ta'ala alaihi Wasallam) said: There will be persons in the Last Era who will apply black dye like the bosoms of the pigeons. Such persons will not get the fragrance of Paradise. (Abu Dawood, Nisai)

    Sayyiduna Abu Zar (radi Allahu anhu) reported that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sallall Laahu Ta'ala alaihi Wasallam) said: The best thing to dye grey hair is henna. (Tirmidi)

    Sayyiduna Abdullah Ibn-e-Omar (radi Allahu anhuma) reported that Prophet Muhammad (Sallall Laahu Ta'ala alaihi Wasallam) said: The dye of a Mu'min is yellow, and that of a Muslim is red and that of a Kaafir black. (Mustadrek)

    Sayyiduna Anas (radi Allahu anhu) reported that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sallall Laahu Ta'ala alaihi Wasallam) said: Prophet Ibraheem (alaihis salaam) was the first person to use henna and Katam for dying his hair and the Pharaoh first used the black dye. At the time of the Conquest of Makkah, Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radi Allahu anhu) brought his father to the Glorious Prophet of Islam (Sallall Laahu Ta'ala alaihi Wasallam) to declare his adoption of Islam. Abu Quhafah (radi Allahu anhu) was an old man in his eighties and his hair had gone all grey with not a single black hair on his head. The Holy Prophet (Sallall Laahu Ta'ala alaihi Wasallam) gave instructions that his hair should be dyed but he told his son to avoid black.

    It is amazing the amount of scholars who claim to admirers of Ala Hadrat 'alyhi rahma yet they fail to even act upon his research on various matters. Dying of the beard it's natural colour is something that is prevalent amongst a large proportion of Sunni scholars in the sub-con.

    Another example is the rampant money-throwing often witnessed at "Mehfil-e-Na'at" conferences. Ala Hadrat 'alyhi rahma again wrote against this extensively and only group who follow Ala Hadrat 'alyhi rahmas fatawa in totality is Dawat-e-Islami.

    wa alaykum assalaam.

    Ala Hazrat Imam Ahmed Raza (RAA) has written a booklet on this which I read just some days ago. Dyeing of beard with any color or synthetic product or even mixing herbs with Henna, so that it appears black, is forbidden. He has quoted various Ahadeeth, one of which warns that if a person dyes his beard black, he will come black faced on the day of Qiyamah. The only exception is during Jihad.

    I think the best followers Of Ala-Hadrat 'alyhi rahma from the sub-con are Dawat-e-Islami. I posed this question to them a few years back and they replied it is forbidden for one to dye their beard black save those instances you have referred to such as jihad.

    asalaamu alaikum
    brothers please could some body verify what alahazrat rahmatullahi alaihis opinion is on the colouring of the beard .i was under the understanding black is not allowed apart from jihaadi exceptions but mehendi is sunnah.
    and secondly could some one please explain the following hadith ,
    1. sharh suddor narrated by hadrat anas radiallahu taala,whoever puts mehendi on their beard when he dies munkar and nakeer will not ask questions from him,one will say why should i ask questions when i see the light of islam on his face.
    this hadith is also on the dawate islami website under pamphlets and under the fadilat for wearing mehendi.
    i posted this on another forum and some people got the impression that the angels were acting against allah subhan hu wa taalas will.and were only created to ask question whatever the weather no matter what .and that they dont have an opinion .i thought it seemed ok implying the fadilat of acting upon the sunnah
    i am sure i have read other ahadith where a person dying on fri or ramadan will not be asked questions.
    the reply i got was if a sikh or a jew were to colour their beards would they also not be asked any questions,
    the hadith is in urdu
    could some body please explain ,may allah reward you,brothers please dont be too hard on me i have no knowledge ,and i got absoloutly slaaughterd on the other forum,
