Hadith Explanation

White Hair is Noor

“The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) forbade plucking out white hairs and said: ‘It is the light of the believer.’” [Sunan Ibn Majah]

Plucking white hair from one’s head is forbidden. Old age is a cause of honour for a believer (Momin) – that they grew old in the service of Allah (subhana wa ta’ala).

It is also a good reminder to one of his/her fleeting stay in this world; the fact that their time is coming to an end sooner rather than later.

The white hair of a believer will be Noor (light) for him/her on the Day of Judgement; a much needed commodity that Day. Noor will allow us to see on the Day when it is pitch dark and none except those with light can cross over the bridge spanning Hell. White hair should thus be cherished.
