What does it mean that white hair will be light for a person on the day of judgment? Answer: ﺑﺴﻢ اﷲ اﻟﺮﺣﻤﻦ اﻟﺮﺣﯿﻢ In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
The Prophet (SAW) said: Translation: Do not pluck white hairs. No Muslim grows a white hair in Islam except that it will be light for him on the Day of Judgment. Explanation: White hair being light on the Day of Judgement means that the white hair a believer grew in this world, and he did not pluck out, will become a manifestation of light moving in front of him enlightening the way amid the darkness on the Day of Judgment until he enters Paradise. Thus, white hair is a means of light and salvation from difficulties, hence one should refrain from plucking them.
