Hadith That Allah Has Commanded Me To Spare My Beard
Assalamualaikum, hello there.
There’s a Hadith that is been quoted by many articles online,
Abu Hurayrah reported that the ruler of Yemen, appointed by the Persian emperor Kisra, sent two envoys to the Messenger (ﷺ). When they came into his presence, he noticed that they had shaved their beards and let their moustaches grow big. Hating their ugly appearance, he turned his face away and said, “Woe be to you, who told you to do so?” They replied: “Our lord (Kisra) did!” The Messenger ! responded: “But my Lord, exalted and glorified be He, has commanded me to spare my beard and trim my moustaches.”
When i went through ghamidi sahab’s videos about Beard from 23 questions series, he told that it was a commentary on the total appearance of shaved or short beard and long moustaches as a whole. So in a Hadith it was said in a way to change that appearance, not as a command to do both things separately etc. But here in this Hadith we see the words ‘But my Lord….has commanded me to spare….’ here the word of commanding is used. So wouldn’t it be taken as an obliging command because here prophet is saying that he was commanded by Allah.
Please tell me in details regarding these understandings
