Adopting any hairstyle that entails shaving some part of the head and leaving the other unshaven (i.e. Mohican, short back and sides, wedges, tram lines etc.) is Makrooh (severely disliked) and prohibited by Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).

Many parents give their children these disliked haircuts from a young age and say that there is nothing wrong with this as they are only children, but little do they know that they have started to teach their children to break the laws of Allah and go against the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). Many youth and adults have also adopted these disliked hairstyles, especially trying to emulate the ever changing fashion.

Sayyiduna Abdullah Ibn Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) narrates that Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) saw a boy whose head was partly shaved and part was covered with hair. He (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Shave it all or leave it all.” (Abu Dawood, No. 3663)

Nafi’ reports that he heard Sayyiduna Abdullah Ibn Umar (May Allah be pleased with him) saying: “I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) forbidding the practice of Qaz’a.” Ubaid Allah said: “I asked what Qaz’a was?" So he (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “When the head of a child is shaved and hair is left here and there, and Ubaid Allah pointed towards his forelock and the sides of his head,”. (Sahih Al-Bukhari, No. 5465 – Sahih Muslim No. 3959)
