Question:

A person made intention of entering into ihram during the days of
hajj. Is it mustahab for him to clip his nails, trim his moustache, and
clean himself before this? Bear in mind that this person also purchased
or intends purchasing his wajib qurbani animal because of the ten days
[of Dhu al-Hijjah].

Answer:
In such a case, it is not mustahab for him to clip his nails, trim his
moustache and so on. Observe the following Hadith:

…Ras’lullah sallallahu ‛alayhi wa sallam said: When the 10 days enter and any
of you intends sacrificing a qurbani animal, he should not touch his hair and
skin [i.e. he should neither clip it nor shave it].

…another narration states: When the 10 days commence and a person has his
animal which he intends sacrificing, he should neither trim his hair nor clip
his nails. Mullah ‛Ali al-Qari rahimahullah said: The prohibition here is
classified as makruh tanzihi. If a person does any of this, there will be no
detestability in it.

Ghunyah an-Nasik:

Allah ta‛ala knows best.
