Cutting of one’s hair

Q: Is it permissible to have a 2 or more length haircut? Kindly Explain


A: No, it is not permissible. This is also imitating the ways of the disbelievers and Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) has prohibited us from imitating them. Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “Whoever imitates a nation is not from amongst us.” (Sunan Abi Dawood #4031)
