I have a slight problem. I am a sincere Muslim. I keep my nails trimmed but my husband wants me to keep them a little long. I have tried to convince him into letting me trim them because it is not allowed in Islam, but he thinks I am becoming an extremist because he finds nothing wrong with keeping elongated nails. What should I do? Husbands do have rights in Islam but I also know that in the Holy Qur’an God Almighty does not allow us to listen to anyone if they are forcing us to go against His commands. Please advise.
I would like to know what is the basis of the claims that prophet’ hair has blessing or his other body parts such as nails etc. Can blessings come from such things? Is there any hadith that supports or are these just whims and fantasies of maulvis?
There is a Hadith in the Sahih of Muslim which says that Muhammad (sws) said that if somebody intends to offer an animal on Eid al-Azha he should not cut his nails and should not trim/cut his hair (head, underarms and private parts) from 1st to the 10th of Zilhijjah i.e. till Qurbani. Kindly guide
