Importance of Beard for Muslim Men

It’s a great surprise that most of the Muslims doesn’t know the importance of having a beard in the way of our beloved Prophet Sal. Much more to my surprise, some of the Muslims even ask, “How do we know our Prophet had a long beard?”….Few Hadith and videos related to this subject has been provided below for the better understanding on the obligation of having a beard.
