Cutting hair and nails during haidh

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Please advise regarding the following:

1. Is it permissible to cut nails and hair during menstrual period? Elders say to keep it safe until haidh/nifas period is over and to wash it off after that and to bury it. 

2. Is there any specific dua in Qur’an or hadees to change the husband into obedient slave of Allah (because he is not convinced of Allah’s wrath if he commits zina after marriage. He refuses to stop contacts with a Christian lady over social media saying that theirs was and will be pure frienship. But I knew few months back that they committed zina several times and continuing contacts even after she married another guy). I wish Allah will change him one day eventhough I know very well that he is very much addicted to her. It was his main hobby to chat with strange girls and became close to them. He isnt stopping it after our marriage. He isnt serious about life after death. I dont want him to die as a person who committed zina. I love him sincerely eventhough I wished and prayed before nikaah that the person who marry me will be a religious guy who is concious of deen. My family will consider me as a burden if I become a divorcee, even if I struggled alot and have valid reasons to seek divorce.



1. You don’t have to wash it.

2. Start off ta`leem in the house in the morning and evening with some Qur’aan recitation.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
