My nails grow quick when I’m in haiz, am i allowed to clip my finger nails whilst in haiz because it becomes unbearable to use my hands for eating or baking.



Muhtaram / Muhtaramah


In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.

In principle it is makruh tanzihi to clip the nails during haidh. However, if there is a need to do so, as explained by yourself, then you may wash your hands/feet and then clip your nails.

1حلق الشعر حالة الجنابة مكروه وكذا قص الأظافير كذا في الغرائب (الهندية)  


وامر الحائض كالجنب عندنا (خلاصة الفتاوى)


فائدة قال في الإحياء لا ينبغي أن يقلم أو يحلق أو يستحد أو يخرج دما أو يبين من نفسه جزءا وهو جنب إذ يرد إليه سائر أجزائه في الآخرة فيعود جنبا ويقال إن كل شعرة تطالب بجنابتها (مغنى المحتاج)
