Is the soul patch(hair under the
bottom lip) part of the beard?


All perfect praise be to Allah,
The Lord of the Worlds. I testify
that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that
Muhammad is His slave and

According to the view we adopt
here in Islamweb, the hair of
the soul patch is forbidden to
shave in the same manner it is
forbidden to shave the hair of
the beard. Rather, some jurists
considered the soul patch
as part of the beard. Indeed,
Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen was
asked ‘Is it permissible to trim
the soul patch or does it take
the same ruling of the beard?’
and he replied saying: “If we
refer to the (Arabic) dictionary,
it says that ‘the beard is the hair
growing on the face and
cheeks…’, so, in the absolute
sense, it is the ‘hair growing on
the face’; this necessitates that
the soul patch which is between
the bottom lip and the beard is
part of the beard.”

Allah Knows best.
