A very common question people ask us whether they should cut nails and hair before Eid Ul Adha as they want to sacrifice the animal in the month of Dhul al Hijjah. So today, we will talk with reference to its authenticity.
As we have discussed in one of the previous blogs about the things you shouldn’t do while wearing Ihram, it also prohibits cutting nails and hair before that person sacrifices an animal.
Every person who is sacrificing an Animal on Eid Ul Adha should stop from trimming hair and cutting nails before Sacrifice (Start of Dhul Hijjah)
But, as per the hadiths, it is only applicable for the person who is doing the sacrifice, let’s say if a family have 5 people, and only one person is paying for the cost of an animal for sacrifice, then that person is not allowed to trim the hair or cut nails, but his family can cut or trim hair as they like. Because Prophet Muhammad PBUH never prohibit his own family to do so, but he didn’t cut his nails and trim hair during this period.
What happens if you mistakenly trim the hair or remove nails in the initial 10 days of Dhu al Hijjah
That person should repent to Allah with the will that he will never make this mistake again. There are no monetary things that a person should give, but it is a must that he must repent to Allah and never make this mistake again.
There is a direct hadith about it;
Prophet Muhammad PBUH didn’t describe why one shouldn’t trim it, but the scholars have described that not cutting nails and trimming hairs in the initial days of Dhul Hijjah is a part of Sacrifice on Eid ul Adha.
As a Muslim, it is our duty to follow the orders of our beloved Prophet Muhammad PBUH. In other Hadith Prophet Muhammad PBUH said;
