Q: Does the area directly below the bottom lip and above the chin constitute part of the sharia beard or can this be trimmed?
A. The area below the lip and above the chin is part of the jawbone upon which it is Waajib to grow the beard, hence it would not be correct to shave this part of the beard. (Fataawa Mahmoodiyah V19 P396). And Allah knows best.
