Q: Can I cut my nails during my monthly periods? Also can I cut my nails at night time (by night time I mean like from 6 or 7 till 12 o clock)?
1. It is makrooh for a woman in the state of haidh to clip her nails. However if there is the need for her to clip her nails (e.g. it has grown very long), it will be permissible.
And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
