Question: Is it permissible for the one who lives in Europe to shorten the beard, if [maintaining] the beard causes him problems in finding work?
Response: Hold firm to the Sunnah wherever [you may be] in the world, and do not look to please the people or cosy-up to them. Hold firm to the Sunnah [with respect to] the beard or other than it, and do not give up on anything of your religion for the sake of pleasing the people. This [kind of behaviour] is false pretence, which is prohibited.
