Ruling on cutting nails during the monthly cycle

Ruling on cutting nails during the monthly cycle

Question 1: What do the blessed Ulama [Islamic scholars] state regarding the following matter: Can a woman cut nails during her monthly cycle and postnatal bleeding, or not? Please explain it in the light of Holy Quran and Hadees.

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ  ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

If a woman’s monthly cycle or postnatal bleeding has ended [and she has become pure from that state] but she has not performed Ghusl [ritual bath] yet, it is Makruh [disliked act] for her to cut nails in this state as she is in the state of Hadas [state of impurity mentioned by Shari’ah] from the very moment her monthly cycle or postnatal bleeding has ended, and Ghusl has become Fard [obligatory] on her at that time. In this state, she is now like a Junubi [person on whom Ghusl is Fard]; as it is Makruh for a Junubi to cut nails in the state of Janabat [state of impurity when Ghusl is Fard], it is Makruh for her as well.

However, if her monthly cycle or postnatal bleeding has not ended yet [and she has not become pure from that state], she can cut nails in the same state because she is not in the state of Hadas yet and Ghusl is not Fard on her. In this state, she is like a non-Junubi in this matter.

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

Can a woman also be a Peer [spiritual guide]?

Question 2: What do the blessed Ulama and Muftis [Islamic jurists] state regarding the following matter: Can a woman also be a Peer [spiritual guide], and can women become her Mureeds [disciples], or not?

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ  ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

It is necessary for a Peer-o-Murshid to be a male person. Therefore, from [the era of] pious predecessors until now, any woman did not become a Peer. So, a woman is not permitted to become a Peer-o-Murshid and make Mureeds. Moreover, no woman is allowed to become a Mureed of any woman. Therefore, women should also become Mureed of a perfect Peer-o-Murshid who fulfils the Shar’i conditions.

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم

What if a woman’s monthly cycle begins after the time of Salah has started?

Question 3: What do the blessed Ulama and Muftis state regarding the following matter: If a woman’s monthly cycle begins after the time of Salah has started, is it compulsory for her to offer the missed Salah of that time after attaining purity?

Questioner: Bint-e-Junayd Attari (Rawalpindi)

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ  ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

If the time of Salah has started and a woman has not yet offered Salah but her monthly cycle or postnatal bleeding begins, it is not compulsory for her to offer that missed Salah after attaining purity because the Haqeeqi [actual] reason for ‘Salah being Fard’ is the Divine commandment, and the apparent reason is ‘time’. Fard is regarded as performed if Salah is offered in any part of this time [period]. It is not compulsory to offer Salah in the beginning part of the time period. As people have this choice, if a person delays offering Salah in the beginning of the time period and such an Uzr [situation] affects him or her due to which a person becomes exempt from offering Salah, then offering Salah of that time is not obligatory [for such a person], and offering this missed Salah is also not compulsory.

وَاللہُ اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم
