Is It Permissible to shave the beard and the mouctache or shorten them?

The Muslim scholars hold a consensus that it is not permissible to shave (one’s) beard, and likewise it is (not permissible) to shorten it; except what has been narrated from Ibn Umar (radiyallaahu-anhu) that when he used to perform hajj or umrah, he would take hold of his beard (i.e. a fist) and cut the excess. As for the moustache, it is obligatory to trim it. Indeed, the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wsallam) said:

”Trim the moustache and leave the beard, and be different from the fire worshippers.” [Reported by Bukhaari: No: 5892]
