    maa shaa Allah excellent work jazaku Allahu khayran


    Assalamu alaikum.
    I would appreciate your comment on following;
    1/37 Muhammad bin Bashshâr narrated to us; Abû Dâwûd informed us; Hammân informed us; on the authority of Qatâdah who said,

    I asked Anas bin Mâlik, ‘Did the Messenger of Allâh -sallAllaahu `alaihi wa sallam- dye his hair?’ He replied, ‘He did not reach that stage, there was just something on his temples, however Abû Bakr dyed his hair with henna and katam.'[1]
    I am 82 years old and the hair on my head and long beard are all grey except, for a small patch
    below my lower lip on my beard. what would you advice?
    It is also said that khatam (yellow) is better than henna (red)

      Wa `alaikumus Salaam wa rahmatullaah,

      Firstly, apologies for the late reply.

      As regards your question, then after looking into the issue then possibly the best option would be to follow the advice of the Prophet -sallallaahu `alaihi wa sallam- to the father of Aboo Bakr -Aboo Quhaafah- at the conquest of Makkah:

      From Jaabir-radiyallaahu `anhu-who said: “Aboo Quhaafah was brought on the day of the conquest of Makkah, and his head and his beard were white like the thughaamah bush, so Allaah’s Messenger -sallallaahu `alaihi wa sallam- said:

      (Dye this with something, and avoid black)

      Saheeh:Saheehul-Jaami` (4170); Muslim (3/1663/69-2102), Aboo Daawood (11/258/4186), an- Nasaa.ee (8/138), Ibn Maajah (2/1197/3624)-with its like

      As regards katam, then it has been mentioned in some sayings as being yellow, and in some sayings, as a black colour. When mixed with the henna, it would turn it a dark reddish-brown dye which can be applied to the hair.

      I hope that the above has answered some of your questions, wallaahu a`lam.

      Wassalaamu `alaikum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh,
