What should be done for those performing Qurbani?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net

Assalaam mu Alaikum
If one is not performing Hajj, but will do the qurbaani, it is not like to cut nails , trim hair or shave etc .When is a person allowed to do this. Is it on the day of Eidul Adhaa before the Eid Salaah or after the qurbaani is actually done ? Any other relevant information is appreciated


Wa Alaikum As Salaam,
A person who wishes to do the Qurbani will refrain from trimming/shaving the hair, cutting the nails etc. from the time the crescent (new moon) is sighted to begin the month of Dhul Hijja until he does the qurbani on the day of Eid. Even though he has performed the Eid Salaah, he must wait until he does the qurbani before cutting the nails etc.


This practice is Mustahab (Commendable).
