ummtaalib Posted October 11, 2013 Report Share Posted October 11, 2013 Question and Answer: Q. I’ve heard that a person who is going to do Qurbani should not clip his nails or trim his hair. Is this true? A. A person who intends doing Qurbani should abstain from trimming/removing his hair, including underarm and pubic hair, or clipping his nails from the first of Zul Hijjah till after the slaughter of his/her Qurbani. This is a recommended practice and has been mentioned in the Hadith. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has said: “Whoever intends doing Qurbani should abstain from clipping his nails or removing his hair for the first ten days of Zul Hijjah” (Sunan an-Nasai, Hadith #: 4362, Narrated by Umm Salmah) It should be noted that whilst this is a recommended practice, it is not compulsory. Hence, if a person trims his hair or clips his nails during the first ten days of Zul Hijjah, he will not be sinful.
