    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 746/620/B=1432) One hadith says: لا طاعة لمخلوق فى معصية الخالق i.e. one should not obey any person in a job in which one has to disobey Almighty Allah,,even he should not obey his mother, father and teacher. It is wajib for a Muslim male to grow beard. It is the sign of Muslims. It is haram to shave or trim it. It is also haram not to offer salah or miss it. It is not right for your family to go against you. One gets job or employment as per destined by Allah. Many graduates as well who don't have beard are roaming jobless.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
