I follow the Hadith where it is said to "Leave / grow the beard and trim moustache". I have hair growing right below my lower lip; some brothers have a big hairless gap there either they don't grow hair there or have shaved / trimmed it. Is this allowed? I heard that that area isn't actually the beard so you can remove.
According to this fatwa, there are two opinions, the strongest of which is that it isn't considered part of the beard and therefore shaving it is permissible.
