Beautiful Story

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: "Trim the
moustache and let the beard grow." [Sahih Muslim]

A famous poet of the Indian subcontinent Mirza Bedil, born in the
seventeenth century, had his own unique style in Persian poetry. A man
travelled all the way from Iran in his longing to meet this poet whose
composition in praise of the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) he
greatly admired.
But when he arrived Bedil was getting shaved. Amazed and saddened at
the sight the Iranian asked, "Master! Do you have your beard shaved
off?"
Bedil answered, "Yes, but I don't shave anyone's heart (i.e., hurt
anyone's feelings)."
His admirer spontaneously retorted, "What! Aren't you shaving the
heart of Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam)?"
According to customary social etiquette the poet wasn't hurting
anyone. But his admirer pointed out that he was in fact cruelly
shearing the greatest of hearts, Rasul Allah's heart! When the actions
of his Ummah are presented to Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa
sallam) and it is said that one of your Ummati shaves his face against
your Sunnah, will this not hurt Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa
sallam)?
When Bedil heard this he immediately repented and asked Allah (subhana
wa ta'ala) to bless the man for opening his eyes, showing him his
error, and bringing him closer to his beloved, the Prophet (sal Allahu
alaihi wa sallam)
