GREY HAIRS – A NOOR “Grey hair is a Noor. He who removes grey hairs, removes the Noor of Islam. When a man reaches 40 years, Allah Ta’ala saves him from three maladies: insanity, leprosy and white liver.” (Hadith) “Grey hair is the Noor of the Mu’min. When a man in Islam gets grey hairs, then for every grey hair (is recorded) a virtuous deed, and for each hair he is elevated a rank.” (Hadith)
These narrations of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) are glad tidings for those who are adorned with grey hairs, and warnings for those who remove or dye their grey hairs to pretend that they are young.
