If a muslim grows old, do they have to dye their hair?

If a muslim grows old, do they have to dye their hair?
I have read this several times. Muhammad is know for using yellow or red to dye his beard and hair.

But here is the verse

"Ibn Sirin reported:
I asked Anas b. Malik whether Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) dyed his hair. He said: He had not reached the stage when (he needed) dyeing (of his white hair). He had a few white hair in his beard. I said to him: Did Abu Bakr dye his hair? He said: Yes, with hina' (henna).
Sahih Muslim 2341 b"

So, do you have a point to make, or do you intend to just spam nonsense until you're banned? Just curious...

I'm going with Option 2.

This is worth an OP?

Anyway, fyi, Muhammad used to copy the Jews' practices when he was trying to convince them of his prophet hood. When that failed, he purposely did the exact opposite to differentiate themselves from the Jews/Christians instead.

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "The Jews and the Christians do not dye (their grey hair), so you shall do the opposite of what they do (i.e. dye your grey hair and beards).

More evidence from Islamic sources;

Narrated Nafi`:
 
Ibn `Umar said, The Prophet (ﷺ) said, 'Do the opposite of what the pagans do. Keep the beards and cut the moustaches short.' Whenever Ibn `Umar performed the Hajj or `Umra, he used to hold his beard with his hand and cut whatever remained outside his hold.

Reference           : Sahih al-Bukhari 5892 Book of Dress
In-book reference           : Book 77, Hadith 109
USC-MSA web (English) reference           : Vol. 7, Book 72, Hadith 780
  (deprecated numbering scheme)
 
Narrated Ubadah ibn as-Samit:
 
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) used to stand up for a funeral until the corpse was placed in the grave. A learned Jew (once) passed him and said: This is how we do. The Prophet (ﷺ) sat down and said: Sit down and act differently from them.
 
Reference           : Sunan Abi Dawud 3176 Book of Funerals (Kitab Al-Jana'iz)
In-book reference           : Book 21, Hadith 88
English translation           : Book 20, Hadith 3170
Wherein both will be those (maidens) restraining their glances upon their husbands, whom no man or jinn yatmithhunna (has opened their hymens with sexual intercourse) before them (Quran  55:56, Mushin)
