Mr xxxxxxxx has brought to our notice that he has requested employment within your company. He is known to be an individual of dedication and honesty.

Mr. xxxxxxxxxxxx has also requested that a letter be furnished pertaining to the need of a Muslim male retaining a beard whilst employed by your company. Islamic rules require that under general circumstances Muslim men should maintain a beard as a requirement to male adornment. It is part of the Islamic belief that such a beard should also be maintained with neatness as defined by our religion as well.

We hope that your company will allow Mr. xxxxxxxx to be employed whilst maintaining a dress code conduct that he adheres to and views as an integral part of his belief.

Should you have any question pertaining to this letter or questions pertaining to religious laws of dress and culture, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours truly,

Muhammed Shoayb

How would adoption work in the United States by an Islamic couple?

Q: How would adoption work in the United States by an Islamic couple? Adoption is a common practice among Judeo-Christian faiths but from my knowledge, Muslims today seem to be cautious to adopt because of the complications it may cause. For example the child is not considered muhrim to the other family members and therefore he/she should not be left alone with family members of the opposite gender. It seems sad that because of these restrictions children don’t have the opportunity to be raised in an Islamic household. Of course foster parenting is always an option but it is generally only a short term solution until they may be placed with an adoptive family. In what instances would you recommend adoption? I realize that the prophet adopted a son, which is one of the reasons it is so appealing to me, however, current adoption systems don’t really favor that style of adoption making it difficult. How could a modern Muslim family make this work practically?
