Cutting one's hair uneven lengths


1. Is qaza' haram or makrooh?

2. If I want to cut my hair short on the sides and keep it large on the top but my intention isn't to imitate anyone and I'm only doing it because I believe I would personally look better would this be considered haram?


1. It is impermissible.

2. Irrespective of the looks, it amounts to an imitation whether you intend it or not. Like if a man has to wear a woman's dress this is imitating though he does not intend imitating.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
