Alsalam Alaikum, i work as a forensic science student ( on crime scenes and labs) and i love my beard but have to cut it off because of the sensitivity of my work (to prevent contaminations in the scene or in the labs). Any traces of my beard in any sample gets me fired. Is there an exception for shaving the beard for work? If so is there any specified length i can keep it in? Thank you, this applies to any other job because even jobs in islamic countries forces you to shave and the hadith that states not to imitate women is understandable but even the army like lebanon where i live other countries makes you shave the hair and the beard. Help on further knowledge would be appreciated.
