Assalam-u-alaikum,
I am writing to ask regarding the ruling on perming ones hair. My parents tell me that having curly hair when I am born with straight hair is haram and now I am unsure. Also, I admit I do not pray 5 times a day and I have a beard. I am told if I don’t pray regularly I can’t keep a beard. What is the ruling regarding this matter.
